    I grew up watching Inside Stuff and I got the Inside Stuff VHS 2 pack back in the day where you would never seen 2 tapes together sold. I’m so happy the show is back, The show will be a hit for sure. Hopefully after NBATV airs some, It can move to TNT or TBS or even TruTV. As long as they get back on National TV after a season or two, People will love this new generation gets a good different take on the game they never had.
