LeBron James has a lot on his plate this off-season, from his Laker duties to his off-court endeavours, but he still might be able to carve out some time to join TNT's "Inside The NBA" crew. And he doesn't seem to necessarily hate the time off.

Will LeBron James be joining Chuck, Shaq, Kenny and Ernie on "NBA on TNT" at some point during the National Basketball Association playoffs?

James took to Twitter to respond to Barkley, hinting there could be a chance he will make his way to Atlanta, GA. You ain't got nothing to do. You just know Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal are going to say something to try and get James off his game.

The Lakers forward will be missing the postseason for the first time in 14 years, making this the ideal opportunity for the likes of Barkley, Kenny Smith, Shaquille O'Neal, and Ernie Johnson to add an elite-level co-host of the Emmy-nominated show. "You're not going to be busy for the playoffs, so I'm inviting you here". You can leave at halftime of the second game.

Back in early March, before the Lakers were officially eliminated from the playoffs but when their disastrous season was clearly heading in that direction, Barkley told James, "Since you're going to have some free time once the playoffs start, I've got a seat for you". The first weekend of the playoffs, we'll put you up at a good hotel.

"LeBron, you have my number". We can even help you do it... "Like I said, you ain't got nothing to do, so you can pick a coach and a general manager later down the line". Listen, Shaq knows, because he would enjoy to coach.

Magic Johnson, the team's president of basketball operations, resigned last week, and head coach Luke Walton parted ways with the team shortly thereafter. "So, come on in LeBron, please".

"Charles, that was impassioned and heart-felt", Johnson said.
