The “Inside the NBA” crew on TNT has not always been shy about criticizing NBA matchups it doesn’t find compelling.

However, on Thursday, the analysts took it to a new level while advertising the NBA’s single-game League Pass special.

While promoting the Los Angeles Lakers-Milwaukee Bucks game, passes for which can be bought for $6.99, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny Smith, and even Ernie Johnson couldn’t contain themselves.

“Man,” Barkley said as Johnson read the promotion, “that should be more like a $1.99 game.”

“Come on, man, y’all are ripping people off!” Barkley said. “If y’all pay $6.99 for that, y’all are getting bamboozled.”

Johnson joined in, saying, “I could think of a lot of things I could do for $6.99 that don’t include the Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks.”

“Save your money, America,” O’Neal said.

“That should be at the dollar store,” Barkley said. “I ain’t seen that since we stole everything from the Indians!”

The NBA can’t love some of its most popular voices disparaging a promotion – but then again, perhaps it could choose a more enticing matchup.
