  • The NBA postgame show which features the three, Inside the NBA, has gained popularity in recent years for the chemistry and banter they have. Occasionally, Johnson, Smith and Barkley are joined by either Magic Johnson or Reggie Miller.

    What's great about the show is how Kenny and Barkley contrast. It's hilarious how they talk about these basketball topics. Barkley has been known for his controversial comments and outrageous bets. During the 2006 NBA Playoffs, in response to performer David Blaine's attempt to stay under water for nine minutes, Barkley duplicated the stunt with a small tub of water. In late 2002, Barkley told Kenny Smith that he would "kiss his ass" if Houston Rockets rookie Yao Ming scored twenty points in a game, which was followed by Yao doing exactly that later that week. As a result, on Listen Up! With Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson that Thursday, Barkley kissed the rear end of a donkey that Smith brought into the studio. Barkley has also been weighed on air several times, and once said B---S---T live on air. In 2002, a controversial Sports Illustrated cover, in which Barkley was portrayed in chains like a slave, led to a sometimes heated debate on the show. The last 3 years, Kenny Smith has been challenging retired great shooters because he thinks he is the best shooter that is not playing ball professionally. Very entertaining show coverage on the NBA.
