Charles Barkley continues to be greeted by awesome surprises by the Inside the NBA crew every time he hits the guarantee button.
Chuck has been on the Milwaukee Bucks bandwagon ever since the start of these playoffs. He picked them to win the Nets series in every game from the series that TNT has broadcasted.
His bullish outlook for the Bucks seemed to have taken on a new level of belief today. This happened because Trae Young was ruled out of tonight’s game due to a bone bruise he suffered in a freak Game 3 incident.
The Inside crew have introduced a new feature that perfectly showcases Chuck’s hilarity. This comes in the form of a guarantee button, which Chuck’s been hitting quite often.
The introduction of this button has already given us several memorable television moments. We’ve had circus performers and drum crews invade Studio J live. We’ve even seen Chuck recoiling at the sight of a python at the studio.
But perhaps basketball fans will be most enamoured by the latest GUARANTEE display. I keep saying that the backroom staff for TNT has been doing some great planning, but they definitely peaked with what they brought on for show today.
Charles Barkley’s guarantee brings out the Harlem Globetrotters to Studio J
The Hawks were huge underdogs heading into Game 4 without Trae Young. DraftKings placed their point spread at Hawks +9, which Chuck found to be a favorable bet.
So instead of backing Milwaukee on the spread as he is wont to, Chuck went for the Atlanta Hawks. And as soon as he hit the guarantee button, basketball fans were treated to a display by the Harlem Globetrotters.

The Inside crew was, as you’d expect, bowled over by the Harlem Globetrotters. Kenny Smith definitely looked like he was having the time of his life while doing tricks along with these fabled hoopers.
