Turner Sports and TNT have the best NBA coverage out there. Not only do they have some of the biggest stars to ever play the game, they also have the ability to bring you knowledge while having fun.
In the 24/7 news cycle, stories and analysis are chewed up and spit out a million times, so it is nice to see a group take a different spin on it. The chemistry between the cast is off the charts, and they do a lot of fun things throughout the season. They have done shirtless competitions, game show style segments, and so much more.
On Thursday night, after countless hours of trash talk, the crew decided to race each other, and they called it “Chariots of Backfire”. As you can see from the video above, these guys probably can’t log NBA minutes anymore, and physical activities aren’t their strong suits. The race pinned Charles Barkely, Shaq, Ernie Johnson, amd Kenny Smith against each other. Ernie Johnson didn’t even run, and somehow Chris Webber came out with the controversial win.
Never change, TNT.
