Of course, Barkley is a member of the halftime show Inside the NBA, which airs during every TNT game broadcast.
Barkley's brash, honest style makes him incredibly likable and relatable to the average NBA fan, and he doesn't try too hard to turn a joke or make fun of one of his fellow analysts.
In his time with TNT, Barkley has addressed openly homosexual players in the NBA many times, raced referee Dick Bavetta, gained and lost a ton of weight, and become one of the most beloved analysts on television.
Chuck's had a great 13 years with TNT, creating some stellar chemistry with Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith, and even going the extra mile to try to make Shaquille O'Neal fit in more with the team.
Sure, he might not know who anybody plays for, and he's certainly not the most smooth-talking man in the world, but he's damn charming and something tells me that this second Emmy is not going to be his last.
