Sunday night’s 2023 NBA All-Star Game coverage in Salt Lake City featured the main broadcast on TNT, and an Inside the NBA-themed broadcast on TBS. Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, and Kenny Smith worked in the booth. Additionally, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green served as a sideline reporter for the TBS crew.
Well, late in the fourth quarter, things got a little awkward for Green on the broadcast.
Green responded, “That’s crazy. You said that last year, but we all know you don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Barkley: “Y’all are cooked now… ya’ll are done… I’m telling you, y’all are done.”

Green: This could be a year you see a 6-7 seed in the Finals…
Barkley: I hate to say it, but the Golden State Warriors are cooked.
Green: That’s crazy. You said that last year, but we all know you don’t know what you’re talking about.
Barkley: No, I didn’t say that last year. No, I did not say that last year.
Green: You said it every year. You said it every year since I’ve been in the league.
Barkley: No, that’s not true.
Green: Oh, this is crazy.
Barkley: But ya’ll are cooked now.
Green: Are we?
Barkley: Yep, ya’ll are done. D-O-N-E.
Green: It still leaves us four ahead of you, boss.
Barkley: I’m telling you, ya’ll are done.
Green and the Warriors — who also feature Steph Curry and Klay Thompson — are currently 29-29, ninth in the Western Conference.
Barkley was also very honest on the broadcast with his feelings about Salt Lake City.
