TNT NBA Studio Show Will Hit Road For Two Games

By Marcus Vanderberg 

Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley will take their TNT NBA Tip-off show on the road twice this regular season, starting with next Tuesday for the NBA season opener between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat.

Opening night is nothing compared to their Dec. 2 telecast that they will do live from Quicken Loans Arena, when LeBron James returns to Cleveland for the first time as a member of the Heat.

Since there’s a good chance Cavaliers fans could riot Quicken Loans Arena as soon as James steps on the court, Inside the NBA that night will be handled by Matt Winer, Kevin McHale and Chris Webber in the Atlanta studio.

Kidding about the riot.

(I hope.)
