Shaq And Donovan Mitchell Had An Incredibly Awkward Postgame Interview

TNT In the 2020-21 season, there are no sideline reporters on NBA broadcasts which means postgame interviews are handled by either the announcers in the booth or, in the case of TNT games, the studio crew.

The best example of the fun option came in the Bubble when they talked with Boban Marjanovic. The examples of disastrous ones are, well, unfortunately far more prevalent, including with Kevin Durant, Christian Wood, Nikola Jokic, and, most recently, Donovan Mitchell on Thursday night after Utah came back from 16 down to runaway from the Pelicans for their seventh straight win. After Ernie Johnson started things off, they turned to Shaq who was critical of Mitchell at the...
