Life Interrupts Lighthearted NBA Show
Ernie Johnson, Jr., host of “Inside the NBA” on TNT just announced he has cancer to explain a swollen lymph node on one side of his face. He’s had his particular kind of cancer for a couple of years but didn't go public with the news till now. It just goes to remind us that people can be going through things we don’t know about. It was very unusual to get something that serious on such a lighthearted show. Ernie, Sir Charles, Kenny Smith, and Magic Johnson usually keep it pretty loose. And so it was tonight until this announcement.
