Inside the NBA isn’t winning Emmy’s anymore but the trio of Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson still have their great moments. Last night, Barkley talked about why he doesn’t believe in the Clips and told one of best jokes in Inside the NBA history when Kenny Smith asked him who his favorite President was. Barkley said Lincoln because he saw the movie (assuming he’s referring to Spielberg’s version and not the Vampire Killer one) and then said the reason why he loves Lincoln is because if it wasn’t for him then they would be calling Ernie “Boss.”
Speaking of films and slavery I highly recommend you see “Django Unchained” and “Lincoln.”
