LeBron James, Damian Lillard, and other All-Stars talk about how receiving criticism from Inside The NBA crew affects them.
Inside The NBA has been on the air for over 30 years now. During its long run, it has evolved from a studio sports show to a phenomenon. TNT decided to honor the show for commemorating the thirty-year milestone with a four-part docuseries.
The episodes would air one per day during the All-Star break, with the first one airing tonight. The first episode was about the host of the show, Ernie Johnson. The episode is titled ‘The Traffic Cop’, based on how he is often compared to one on the show.
The next three episodes would air in the following order: Kenny Smith in Act 2 ‘The Role Player’, Charles Barkley in Act 3 ‘The Entertainer’, and Shaquille O’Neal in Act 4 ‘The Little Brother’.

For the making of the docuseries, the TNT crew went and talked to different NBA stars around the league. In recent times, there have been a lot of bold statements and claims by the crew members, especially Shaq in particular.
Players have not always reacted kindly to it, but still have respect for Shaq, due to what all he has achieved. In this special video, LeBron James, Damian Lillard, Kyle Lowry, and Jimmy Butler are seen talking about the crew.
They talk about how it feels to be criticized by Hall of Fame players talking about what you do on the court. They talk about how good it feels to be appreciated by the same as well.

The Inside crew, having played in the league themselves, get more respect from the players than the other talk shows. The show always has a refreshing feel to it, and hopefully, it keeps going on for the foreseeable future.
