Charles Barkley Almost Fell Asleep During 'Inside The NBA' On TNT (VIDEO)

Charles Barkley seemed to need a cup of coffee or perhaps just some better basketball to watch on Thursday night.

The Hall of Famer nearly fell asleep during "Inside the NBA" on TNT on Thursday night and his cohorts, understandably, didn't cut him much slack. In Chuck's defense, the two games on the TNT schedule were blowouts: The Thunder routed the Lakers 131-102 and the Bulls beat the Rockets 111-87.
