Ahmad Rashad to host ‘NBA Inside Stuff’-style panel with Hall of Famers
After his days in the NFL, Ahmad Rashad made a name for himself in the 1990s as the host of “NBA Inside Stuff.” Now, the renowned reporter is set to host an “Inside Stuff”-like Q&A panel on the NBA’s Twitter account that will feature a slew of Hall of Famers. The show will start at 7 p.m. ET on Sunday night.
Among those confirmed to join Rashad are Utah Jazz legends Karl Malone and John Stockton, the Seattle SuperSonics’ star duo of Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, and San Antonio Spurs Hall of Fame center David Robinson, among a host of others.
Rashad likened this to “an ‘Inside Stuff’ reunion” and described how the panel will go, via Mark Medina of USA TODAY Sports:
“We’re going to let it run,” Rashad told USA TODAY Sports. “It’ll be like we’re out having beer and sitting at my house just talking about a lot of stuff.”
Aside from the aforementioned five, there could be at least 30 players from the 1990s who will join the Q&A. “Inside Stuff” gained a lot of popularity during the 1990s due to its eye-catching content and creative way of showcasing the NBA’s brightest stars at the time. Of course, a huge chunk of their success had to do with Rashad’s stellar hosting and his great rapport with the league’s stars, including Michael Jordan.
Certainly, this throwback Q&A will bring back memories to many NBA fans. It will also give old-school fans some fresh content to look forward to during the league’s hiatus.
The final two episodes of “The Last Dance” will also air on Sunday night, and it’s highly likely that this will be a point of discussion among the former players who will join Rashad’s show. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like MJ will join his good buddy on Sunday … unless he makes a surprise appearance.
