Inside the NBA on TNT is seen by many fans as one of the highlights of watching basketball on TNT, and Charles Barkley may have figured out a way to make it even more fun.

Charles Barkley, former NBA player, and now analyst invited LeBron James to join the Inside the NBA show. The show features Kenny Smith, Ernie Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Barkley. They are known for their funny antics and insightful basketball knowledge.

On Saturday night, the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Memphis Grizzlies, and Patrick Beverley could not contain his excitement. Beverly Jumped on the table and begin to scream and rip his shirt off.

To make light of the situation, the Inside the NBA crew, showed an image of Beverley dressed in Celtics gear. They were comparing Beverley’s excitement to Kevin Garnett’s “anything is possible” moment after the Boston Celtics won the 2008 championship.  LeBron saw the graphic and tweeted laughing emojis. This prompted Barkley to invite him to the show.

LeBron James and Charles Barkley would be a hilarious duo

LeBron last appeared on Inside the NBA when he and Kevin Durant were selecting players for Team LeBron and Team Durant. Durant and LeBron kept passing up Harden. Ultimately Harden ended up going to Lebron. But not without some jokes at his expense.

This pair was definitely entertaining. If LeBron was to take Barkley up on his offer to join the show, based on this appearance, fans would be in for a treat.
