Out of the Bleachers: Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe will be the new host on TNT’s Tuesday night NBA coverage. Lefkoe will be joined on set by Dwyane Wade, Shaquille O’Neal and Candace Parker. Turner has scrapped the “Players Only” format, turning to strong play-by-players in Ian Eagle and Brian Anderson. They will be working with Stan Van Gundy and Jim Jackson. The exact pairings are not yet known.
Storyline: Media Hirings
TNT and ESPN are making significant changes to their NBA coverage, and it appears to be for the better. The highlights: 1). TNT dumped the “players only” Tuesday night cablecasts and replaced them with more traditional cablecasts featuring a trained play-by-play announcer (Ian Eagle, Brian Anderson) with a trained analyst (Stan Van Gundy, Jim Jackson). Those “players only broadcasts” — featuring three former players without a professional play-by-play voice — ended up ranking among the most regrettable sports broadcasting lab experiments of the 21st century.

Turner Sports hires Stan Van Gundy

Turner Sports has reached a multi-year agreement with Stan Van Gundy, with the veteran NBA head coach serving as a game analyst for NBA on TNT Tuesday night coverage, along with being an NBA TV studio analyst throughout the season. Van Gundy will be one of several commentators in new or expanded roles, with play-by-play broadcasters Ian Eagle and Brian Anderson and analyst Jim Jackson also contributing to TNT’s Tuesday night NBA coverage.
