Charles Barkley got a little confused on the “NBA on TNT” show Thursday night.

Speaking about the game today, he was thinking about interplanetary travel and stuff when he said, “I’m gonna tell you something, man, ain’t no doubt in my mind if I played the game today, I’d be going to the game in a spaceship … like Leroy — Elroy —  Jetson.”

Ruh-roh, Chuck. That was all Shaquille O’Neal and the TNT graphics folks needed.

“Leroy Jetson. Is that the black Jetson?” O’Neal asked and then sang. “Don’t forget his homeboy Leroy.”
