If contributing to Turner Sports’ NCAA men’s basketball tournament coverage in March was an audition, two-time WNBA MVP Candace Parker passed. Turner announced Wednesday that Parker has agreed to serve as an analyst and commentator for the NBA on TNT and NBA TV throughout the season in addition to reprising her studio role during the Turner/CBS coverage of March Madness.
Damian Lillard: “My favorite is probably Candace Parker—that’s my homegirl. Maya Moore. Diana Taurasi. But my sleeper, that I like personally, that I watch, Odyssey Sims. I’ve watched her since Baylor. She was nice there. I think that I’ve followed her for awhile, that I like her game a lot.”
Raptors fans, however, should be well-aware that their basketball staff members Phil Handy (who posted the photo), John Corbacio and Jeremy Castleberry attended both workouts with Leonard. Also, Handy, a new Raptors assistant coach, previously worked with Bryant with the Lakers and James and Osman with the Cavaliers. Spurs assistant coach Chip Engelland also once helped Leonard improve his shooting form by using examples of Bryant, who has also worked out with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jayson Tatum, Kyle Kuzma and Candace Parker this offseason.
You won’t have to wait too much longer to see one of LeBron James’ latest productions.

The first episode, filmed in Los Angeles, features NFL stars Odell Beckham Jr. and Michael Bennett, Golden State’s Draymond Green, L.A.-area rappers Snoop Dogg and Vince Staples, as well as L.A.
