Not sure the reasoning behind this, but Charles Barkley will call this Thursday Night’s Lakers/Kings game with Marv Albert.

Ernie and Kenny will start off the night with the pregame, which will lead into the Pistons/Hornets game at 815. Barkley and Albert will be on at 1030. The best part might not even be Charles in the booth, but Kenny and Ernie making fun of him in the post game.

Are TNT’s Basketball ratings dwindling? To tell you the truth I haven’t really watched a whole game yet this year. The NBA League Pass kind of drags me away from the cable broadcasts, but I might have to watch this game.
