Watch: Charles Barkley invites LeBron James to be TNT analyst
Charles Barkley made his plea on Sunday night for LeBron James to join the TNT crew as a studio analyst during the playoffs, and he did so in a way that only he can.
Appealing to James after the Houston Rockets’ Game 1 win over the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs on Sunday night, Barkley said James should join them because he doesn’t have anything to do with the Los Angeles Lakers eliminated from the postseason.

Of course Barkley joked about LeBron needing to hire a coach and GM for the Lakers, which was a reference to James’ power within the organization.
Surprisingly, Rob Pelinka is running the team’s coaching search, which means James should have even more free time. He’ll probably be spending it working on his movie career. He should drop into TNT for a show or two and give the fans a thrill.
