You have to hand it to TNT. They have managed to gather a collection of individuals that not only know the game, but talk about it in a way that makes even boring games interesting.
What really makes them great is that they don't pull any punches. They don't sweat being politically correct or angering the NBA. If they see something they don't like they talk about it openly and in a matter of fact manner.
Like in this clip when Sir Charles Barkley calls out the NBA for trying too hard to make sure the Miami Heat make it to the Finals...

Oh those crazy professional basketball players and their fashions! Dwayne Wade and LeBron James were at it again for Game Three of the Eastern Conference Finals. While the talk should be all about the way the Heat played--and a lot of it will be--we can't help but recognize the bold fashion moves that these titans of the hard court made Sunday.
LeBron has worn some pretty...
More in the Dwyane Wade fashion series. I think this one’s gotta go back in the armoire. Cardigan AND a pocketbook? I’m all for pushing boundaries but cmon dood
Wade and Melo’s Girl Hangout
The Golden Child
I wouldn't be a good Celtics fan if I didn't take immense pleasure in the Heat losing or in the misery of their bandwagon fans. It's interesting to see after all the "We got Ray" chants to begin the year they seem to be having some buyer's remorse. Excuse me if I chuckle a bit. And I love how they end up trashing all their players. It's one...
When even Udonis Haslem can't miss for Miami, you know Heat won't
Miami Heat fans have faced many unflattering stereotypes over the past few years, but Indiana Pacers announcer Mark Boyle (pictured) took it to another level on Friday night. The Pacers announcer must have seen Heat fans leaving American Airlines Arena as Miami was down at the end of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, [...]
Really, what can you say? This was just one of those games where you have no choice but to shake your head, acknowledge the supremacy of the Miami Heat, and move on. This was the kind of game that reminds you why the Heat are the reigning NBA champs, and why LeBron James is head and shoulders above everyone else in the league. It is the kind of game that reminds us that as the Pacers...
Udonis and Umakethis
In the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, at home, the Heat didn't look like, well, the team that had won an absurd percentage of games for the past 4+ months. Indy led for long stretches, crashed the boards, forced turnovers, and had their best player fight the Heat's best player to something akin to a draw. If you wanted to tell the...
LeBron James could be the next great two-sport star, according to Joe Theismann.
James wouldn’t be playing in the NFL and NBA at the same time, though. Theismann thinks James could start up an NFL career after he’s done in the NBA. And Theismann wants to be involved – because he needs a job.
“I would love to work him out and also serve as his agent,” Theismann told FOX...
MIAMI -- If LeBron James really wants one day to be a quarterback, a possible mentor has emerged.Super Bowl champion and two-time Pro Bowl signal caller Joe Theismann said he's willing to offer his services this summer to teach the Miami Heat star the position. In fact, Theismann, who lives in Memphis, said he wouldn't hesitate to approach James, 28, with the idea if the...
Tweet One of the worst kept secrets in the NBA is that LeBron James is the best player in the league right. His combination of athleticism, leadership and unbelievable skill put him on his own tier right now in the league. However, Super Bowl Champion quarterback Joe Theismann thinks that LeBron could be successful at [...]
