Johnson wearing the “Elevator Ernie Johnson” shirt is just tremendous and Kenny Smith’s commentary added to the fun, much like during the “Inside The NBA” broadcasts.
Barkley wasn’t exactly Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson from behind the three-point line (his career-high for a season was 34%), but it has to be atleast a little surprising he didn’t come out on top, right? Let’s give Johnson his props though. He’s got a decent looking shot and like he said, held it down for grandfathers everywhere.
