The Grio reported:
It wouldn’t quite be All-Star Weekend without Charles Barkley interviewing President Barack Obama.
The NBA Hall of Famer sat down with Obama as part of TNT’s coverage of the big game, which airs Sunday night. Barkley is an analyst for the network’s “Inside the NBA” show and a big reason why the program is the top-rated show in its genre.
Barkley’s become known for his ‘real-talk’ analysis of players, teams and games that have made him a favorite among hoops fans and media members alike. Obama is a big fan of the NBA and a former player himself.
The official ‘NBA on TNT’ Twitter account released an eight-second teaser of the interview, which airs during pregame of the All-Star Game on Sunday night:
On Thursday, Official White House photographer Pete Souza tweeted out a photo of Barkley and Obama in the Oval Office.
Maybe Barkley will ask the president about the record black unemployment rate which is at its highest level on record? Nah, just kidding.
