First, we’ll explain why Dan Le Batard is on your computer screen in a Speedo. He lost a bet to Charles Barkley on last year’s NBA Finals.
Le Batard obviously picked the Heat and Barkley went with the Mavs. Le Batard lost and this is what we’re forced to see.
We’ll keep this one short because there’s never a good reason for Dan Le Batard to be in a Speedo. So Le Batard and Charles Barkley had a bet during last year’s NBA Finals. Barkley took Dallas. Le Batard took his home team. Loser would wear a Speedo. So here we are looking at Le Batard paying off his bet this afternoon during his ESPN 790 show. Someone has been drinking lite...
Even though Inside the NBA is over for the season, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal are still at work in the NBA Finals, appearing on NBA TV. After Miami's Game 3 victory over the Thunder, the NBA TV postgame crew were courtside after the game with Barkley, O'Neal, and host Matt Winer.
