    Houston Rockets v Sacramento Kings

    The Thunder are playing Russell Westbrook less than ever. They’re even sitting him in some back-to-backs. It’s all designed to maximize his availability for the playoffs.

    Mar 15, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

  19. Charles Barkley almost fell asleep on Inside the NBA set (VIDEO)

    Mar 14, 2014, 12:12 PM EDT

    Charles Barkley

    This is what makes Inside the NBA on TNT great. You can be sure some star almost fell asleep on the set of a Sunday morning football show this year, but they got him some coffee and kept it off the air. Not Inside the NBA. They show Charles Barkley nodding off and the guys…
