TNT's Inside the NBA has been filled with a lot of hilarious moments this NBA season. From Charles Barkley's reference to "Leroy Jetson" to Shaq's impersonation of Chuck sleeping on the set, the Inside the NBA team has gone out of their way to keep us entertained over the course of the last six months. But they went above and beyond last night with this clip, which featured the fellas talking about how some NBA players talk to referees prior to a game to try and get on their good sides.

This is why Inside the NBA is one of the greatest sports shows—if not the greatest sports show—on TV.
