It would seem that way, kids: According to the Sports Business Journal (ESPN also had a story on it), Charles Barkley is returning to TNT following the network's airing of the All-Star game on Sunday. Barkley took a leave of absence last month following his Dec. 31 arrest; he's still facing a drunk-driving charge.
The exact date of his return seems to be unknown at the moment, but he shall return. And love him or hate him, he does get folks talking. And that's the point, isn't it?
Now reading the story, I was struck by the comment from Turner Sports president David Levy: "The question is, when is the right time to bring him back? There is no magic answer to that. It's just a gut feel." So here's my question: Is this the right time to bring him back? --Tracey Myers
