With the NBA Finals fast approaching, there’s only so many episodes of “Inside the NBA” left for fans to enjoy the casual, often hilarious if wide-veering banter of Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, Shaquille O’Neal, and Charles Barkley.
On Wednesday night, after the Houston Rockets took care of the Golden State Warriors to even the Western Conference Finals 1-1, the “Inside the NBA” crew tackled an issue that was dividing a nation – the Yanny vs. Laurel debate.
While Kenny, Shaq, and Ernie all seemed to at least grasp the idea of the question, Barkley immediately brought the train off the rails by insisting that he had heard “doughnut” instead.
