I love when TNT has the rights to broadcast a huge game. Not because they're the best NBA broadcast in the business, but because they usually send Charles Barkley around the late-night circuit to promote it. And there can never be enough Barkley late-night appearances. So Tuesday, with LeBron James returning to Cleveland tomorrow night, Barkley stopped by Conan O'Brien's show to talk hoops.
They began by talking about President Obama's hoops game, and after Barkley's scouting report Conan asked whether Barkley could handle the president in the post.
He laughed and said, "I'm a old fat guy now, but I'd kick his ass." And maybe it's just me, but I don't think there's any better way to start your day then with Conan and the Chuckster.
