TNT Sending Studio Team to LeBron James’ Big Games in Boston and Cleveland

TNT will be sending their studio team of Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson to two key road games for LeBron James and the Miami Heat this season — Boston and Cleveland.

A team of analysts that normally only travel for the All-Star Game, TNT will be looking for enhanced coverage at two of the most highly anticipated games of the 2010-11 NBA season.

When the Heat open up their season at the Boston Garden on Oct. 26, Barkley will be there bashing LeBron alongside Smith and Johnson. Barkley has described LeBron as a 'punk' and outwardly proclaimed that he was disappointed when he joined with Dwyane Wade in Miami. The controversial Barkley will without a doubt be looking for any and all reasons to rag on James during the NBA season opener.

The TNT trio will also cover the Dec. 2 showdown between the Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers, where LeBron will face the Cavs and their fans for the first time as a visiting player.

TNT definitely picked two of the best games on the Heat's schedule to watch Barkley barking about LeBron to Smith and Johnson.
