On Thursday night following their NBA coverage, TNT will air a 30-minute special featuring Manny Pacquiao, Charles Barkley, and Reggie Miller, as Pacquiao nears his fourth fight night with Juan Manuel Marquez on December 8.

From the press release:

Show highlights include:
• Miller joining Pacquiao on his morning run through Griffith Park in Los Angeles.
• Barkley spending time with Pacquiao’s Hall of Fame trainer, Freddie Roach, at the famed Wild Card Gym.
• Barkley and Miller dropping in on one of Pacquiao’s intense training sessions.

"As a boxing fan, it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done," said Barkley. Miller added, "As a professional athlete, it’s always interesting to learn how other elite athletes prepare themselves for competition. Training with Manny was an experience I’ll never forget."

TNT's NBA coverage begins at 8 pm EST with the Miami Heat facing the New York Knicks, followed by a 10:30 pm EST game between the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns, so the special is going to air at a pretty late hour, but it'll be on, so if you're a night owl, here's something you can watch.
