The cast of Saturday Night Live has had some fun with Charles Barkley and the cast of Inside the NBA recently.

This Saturday night Charles Barkley hosts SNL for the fourth time. Because TNT loves its cross-promotion (The Alienist is pretty good, although not as good as the book), this Thursday night the cast of Inside the NBA will travel to Studio 8H in Rockefeller Plaza to do the Inside the NBA broadcast. Which promises to be entertaining.

What I really want to see is Kenan Thompson doing his Charles Barkley next to the actual Charles Barkley (although Thompson’s LaVar Ball with Barkley could be fun too).

You have probably blocked it out of your memory, but Barkley has hosted three times before (September 25, 1993; January 9, 2010; and January 7, 2012). This outtake may be the best thing from those shows.
