Charles Barkley said some very nice words about Ernie Johnson, before quickly going back to being Chuck
Ernie Johnson has a new autobiography book that was just released, titled Unscripted. He got the chance to promote the book during Saturday’s coverage of the Final Four on CBS, and he couldn’t have gotten a better endorsement than he did from two guys he’s sat next to for a long time, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley.
Smith was first up, and talked about how unbelievably unique Johnson’s life has been:
But what Barkley had to say was particularly great, especially because you rarely see this side of him. You could tell that Ernie was even caught off guard and getting choked up by Barkley’s genuine, kind comments. And… that was quickly followed by Chuck being Chuck:

Ernie: There’s an audiobook too. So you can just pop that in.
Charles: I work with you and listen to you all the time, I’m not gonna drive around and listen to you!
Ernie: I appreciate the sentiment.
