Video: Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb Have Uncomfortable CBS Interview

Viewers watching the Kentucky-North Carolina game on Sunday hoping to hear a good breakdown from the analysts at halftime came away disappointed. Actually, they probably had their senses assaulted by the uncomfortable three-minute interview CBS conducted with UConn stars Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb. Check it out if you didn’t already see it via Bubbaprog:

Walker’s a junior so he’s had three years of media experience, but Lamb made it painfully obvious he’s only a freshman and new to interviews on national TV. CBS should have known better than to put an inexperienced player on TV for a sit-down like that because not even Charles Barkley fudging his questions could lighten the mood. Next time CBS should ask for the coach and a media-savvy player for an interview. Then again, they’re kind of in a tough spot because only people in Massachusetts and Connecticut can understand whatever dialect of English Jim Calhoun speaks.

    People from CT worship Calhoun, but I’m not so sure they can understand him either. Us Mass people are the only ones who can pick up over 80% of what he says.

    If people in Mass can only understand 80% of his words then we’re all in real trouble
