TNT's studio show to accompany some Heat road trips

Posted Oct 19 2010 6:18AM

NEW YORK (AP) -- TNT is sending its studio team along for a couple of LeBron James' big road trips.

Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson will be on site when the Miami Heat open the NBA season at Boston on Oct. 26. The trio also will broadcast live from Quicken Loans Arena on Dec. 2 when James returns to Cleveland for the first time as a visiting player.

Barkley has been critical of the way James handled his departure from the Cavaliers in July.

TNT's team traditionally only travels from its Atlanta studio for All-Star weekend and the network's coverage of the conference finals.
