Tracy Morgan says something about Sarah Palin

Posted by Royce Young

I'm not sure anyone has ever made Charles Barkley speechless, but Tracy Morgan did exactly that. On "Inside the NBA" before the Knicks game against the Heat, Morgan was brought over to talk to Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson. Morgan, of course, is one of the most recognizable Knicks fans and is a star on 30 Rock and formerly of Saturday Night Live .

Barkley and Smith asked Morgan to settle an argument about Morgan's co-star Tina Fey and former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin. I'm not sure Morgan really settled the debate, but he certainly had an answer. (Heads up: Inapproriate, sexual comment ahead)

A Turner Sports spokesman told Sports Media Watch of the incident, "It's unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments."

Morgan is the one to blame for the comments obviously, but Chuck and Kenny Smith should've known what kind of territory they were walking into when they asked the question.

Heat Stroke:TNT doesn't travel...except for Heat

Popular studio show goes on the road to cover LeBron as media frenzy continues. Posted by Matt Moore

"Inside the NBA " is arguably the best... no, sorry, it is the best NBA studio show on television. And it's not even close and we all know it. The combination of personality, style, analysis, and discussion that the show puts together is unmatched and it is quite literally must-see TV for any huge NBA fan. And it's almost always held in the comfy confines of the TNT studios, except for All-Star weekend and the Conference Finals.

But then, this is no ordinary season.

TNT has announced that it's taking its show on the road for... you guessed it, two Heat games this year. The crew will be in Boston for the season opener October 26th (only a week you guys!) as Miami faces the Celtics, and they'll travel to Cleveland on December 2nd for the near-riot when LeBron James returns to Cleveland. You can expect a lot of Charles Barkley bad-mouthing LeBron during both of these shows while Kenny Smith probably takes a more eloquent approach at criticism and Ernie laughs slightly uncomfortably.

Of course, for all the talk of how the Miami Triad team-up was bad for the sport, or in poor consideration, or whatever, the fact remains that TNT will still be there, making money off of the public attention garners even as he's hated, as this team continues to crossover into unforseen depths of media focus. It's a cash cow, even if some are slashing at the udders while they milk.
