Hang Time Podcast (Episode 100) Featuring TNT’s Shaq, Kenny and Charles

hangtime-100-575-

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – The centennial edition of The Hang Time Podcast was bound to be our biggest and best effort to date.

It had to be, given the star-studded guest list headlined by TNT’s Emmy Award-winning crew from The Inside set, masters Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny Smith and the Hall of Famer, Charles Barkley. With an opening assist from the great Ernie Johnson and a visit from the longtime radio voice of the Atlanta Hawks, Steve Holman, who was celebrating his 2,000 consecutive broadcast, we made sure to celebrate 100 right here at headquarters.

Dozens of current and former NBA players, current stars and living legends, have made appearances on the show in the first 100 episodes. We’ve talked to a little bit of everybody, from comedian extraordinaire Charlie Murphy to NBA Commissioner David Stern, Hollywood up-and-comer Genesis Rodriguez to comedic wiz Chelsea Peretti.

About the only guys we hadn’t spoken to yet were Shaq, Kenny and Charles … until now!

Listen in on Episode 100 of the Hang Time Podcast and party with us while we keep it 100!

(Big ups to Vince Thomas of The Shadow League, our former super producer Micah Hart for hatching the podcast with me from the start and the NBA TV and NBA Digital brain trust of Rusty Mintz, Tony Lamb, Steve “The Boss Man” Quintana, John Donovan, Kevin McCormack, Beau Estes our former intern Tori Carmen for helping nurse the show from its infancy into the full-blown ball of hoops chaos that we’ve grown into.)

LISTEN HERE:

As always, we welcome your feedback. You can follow the entire crew, including the Hang Time Podcast, co-hosts Sekou Smith of NBA.com,  Lang Whitaker of SLAM Magazine and Rick Fox of NBA TV, as well as our new super producer Gregg (just like Popovich) Waigand and the best engineer in the business, Jarell “I Heart Peyton Manning” Wall.

    CHARLES BARKLEY HAS NOTHING GOOD TOSAY ABOUT KOBE. HE REALLY DONOT LIKE LEBRON BUT HE PRETENDS FOR THE SAKE OF PRETENDING.

    KENNY IS BARKLEY’S LAP DOG. WHAT EVER BARKLEY SAYS GOES WITH KENNY SMITH.

      are you know to NBA TV/Hangtime? Kenny is always disagreeing and making fun of chuck, this one time he tends to agree with chuck and suddenly he’s his lapdog?

    What’s up with Sekou’s eyes?

  8. James says:

    Can somebody tell me where is Camelo Anthony’s head? And how can Blake Griffin dunk without the ball? Is he standing on the KIA car? he’s not even looking at the rim…somebody need a photoshop lesson!

    • J says:

      Did you just start watching yesterday?

      • James says:

        yes. but i bet anything I know more than you. I havent seen any game that Camelo plays without having his head on his neck. No NBA all star dunk contest with Blake looking aside like that and he’s like a giant compares to Baron Davis. His legs are too long to for him to be only a few feet above the car in that position. Photoshop lack of skill!

  9. Congrats Sekou! If you need another intern, give me a shout!!

  10. ZULU says:
