TNT’s Inside the NBA has been on the air since 1989, and over the last few decades especially it’s become some of the most consistently entertaining sports television. That’s thanks mostly to the chemistry between host Ernie Johnson and panelists Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, and Shaq.
The show offers both unfiltered analysis and, moreover, a willingness to not take anything too seriously, especially themselves. After 30 years, TNT is offering a look back with a four-night documentary, The Inside Story. It will premiere in May, and TNT released a trailer ahead of the network’s NBA All-Star Saturday Night coverage.
Featuring interviews with voices ranging from Bob Costas to Snoop, along with sit-downs with all four core members of the team and a joint interview that might end up being the most entertaining and informative segment. If there’s one thing those four guys know how to do together, it’s that.
