Special Edition of NBA TV's "Open Court" to Feature NBA Greats Responding to Fan Questions Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 6:30 p.m. ET

This Week's Critically Acclaimed Roundtable Show to Feature Host Ernie Johnson with NBA Hall of Famers Charles Barkley & Dominique Wilkins, NBA Champions Rick Fox, Steve Kerr, Kenny Smith & Steve Smith and Seven-Time NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady

NBA TV's critically acclaimed Open Court series will continue Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 6:30 p.m. ET with a cast of NBA greats answering questions submitted directly from fans via Twitter. Among the topics on the fan-centered show, the panel discusses athletes they wish they played alongside, coaches they wouldn't want to play for, their most memorable shot, comparisons between players and various eras, and their favorite NBA cities.

The panel is hosted by Sports Emmy Award winner Ernie Johnson with a collection of TNT and NBA TV analysts including Hall of Famer Charles Barkley and NBA Champions Rick Fox, Steve Kerr, Kenny Smith and Steve Smith. Additionally, Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins and seven-time NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady are guests on this week's show.

Open Court is televised each Tuesday throughout October, leading up to the start of the 2013-14 NBA regular season.

Excerpts from the upcoming Open Court episode:

Tracy McGrady on whether there was a point in his basketball career when he thought about quitting: "Absolutely there was... my last year in Orlando, my fourth year there... we only won 19 games that year, and by that time I was looking to compete in the East, at least to get out of the first round; never happened. I'm frustrated, this is when they integrated zone, [so] teams are playing zone on me. I started off the season slow, averaging about 22 points... I even think I called Tyronn Lue to get MJ [Michael Jordan] on the phone... 'How do I beat this?' I needed some help, because I was really frustrated. It got to the point where I don't even want to go to the arena... I could have 30 [points] but we'd still lose."

Kenny Smith on a coach he was glad he never played for: "Bobby Knight. I saw that letter [from Indiana]. I didn't even open it. I did not even open it."

Charles Barkley on how LeBron James would translate in the NBA if he played in the 1990s: "I've been in the NBA for over 30 years now; there's always been a player that you could compare somebody to. LeBron James is the first player that I've never seen another player that I could compare to."

Kenny Smith on his favorite NBA city: "The reason that I like New York... playing in The Garden... you could get cheered; the opposition gets cheered. If you're playing well, regardless of who you are [you get cheered]; the other thing is, they come to see the game. The show is the game."
