After almost universal love tossed in the general direction of the TNT NBA crew, time to look at Ernie Johnson.

Johnson seems to us like a guy who came out of nowhere and found himself in the perfect spot. Corralling Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley every night can't be easy, but E.J. — as the kids call him — seems to have a knack for it. He also has won the Sports Emmy for Outstanding Sports Personality, Studio Host twice, the only person other than Bob Costas to win it.


Also, he overcame non-Hodgkins lymphoma. But we don't want to rig the results here.

So: Do you like the Ernie Johnson? Do you not like the Ernie Johnson? Let us know.
