Ernie, Kenny, Charles, Shaq and LeBron would be television gold during the 2019 NBA playoffs.

Charles Barkley might have presented his greatest idea ever back in March, and he had to bring it up again Sunday night.

After the Rockets defeated the Jazz, the Inside the NBA analyst suggested that LeBron James should take time out of his schedule to join the TNT crew in their Atlanta studio to provide insight during the NBA postseason.

As Chuck noted, LeBron is free right now because, well, we all know what happened with the Lakers throughout this season, missing the playoffs and what not.

Although, with Magic Johnson's abrupt decision to leave his role as team president and the organization agreeing to part ways with coach Luke Walton, there might be a little more for LeBron to do. How is he supposed to mastermind a plot to land Anthony Davis and another All-Star talent in Los Angeles if there is no coach or team president?

Either way, Barkley wants Bron on the set, and Ernie Johnson knows just where to sit him at the table.

After watching how LeBron got down with the TNT crew during the All-Star draft, who wouldn't be in favor of this?

Ernie, Charles, Kenny, Shaq and LeBron would change sports television forever. Plus, there would be another person at the table who's won back-to-back titles, so Shaq could tease Chuck even more than he already does.

Seriously, how do we make this happen?


Well, LeBron James tweeting about his interest in potentially joining the crew is one way to get the ball rolling on this.

As LeBron mentioned, his schedule might not be as clear as Charles suggested just because the Lakers aren't playing anymore. He still has to start filming for Space Jam 2 this summer in addition to all the other projects he's working on, like The Shop and Million Dollar Mile. And he also has that school he started up.

But, maybe he can find one Thursday night to make our NBA viewing experience even more amazing.
