There’s never a dull moment on TNT’s Inside the NBA and that statement held true on Thursday night when cast clown Charles Barkley struggled with his memory during an attempted joke.
In mid-ramble, Barkley suggested that if he still played, he’d fly to the arena in a spaceship much like LeRoy Jetson.
LeRoy Jetson? Of course, Barkley meant Elroy Jetson, the young child character of the once popular animated television series, The Jetsons. That sent Barkley’s fellow cast members into a good three minutes of laughs, including Shaquille O’Neal who seemingly couldn’t get over Barkley’s mistake.
As if that wasn’t enough, the technical team at Inside the NBA (which is among the best in professional sports broadcasting) decided to do a little graphic editing, which ensued in more laughs – complete with sound effects.
O’Neal, show host Ernie Johnson and fellow analyst Kenny Smith continued to harass Barkley throughout the show, which even Barkley got some chuckles out of.
