TNT Is Eliminating 'Players Only' NBA Broadcasts The broadcast featuring only ex-players
is a thing of the past. 'Players only' broadcasts will not air on TNT
during the 2019-2020 NBA season. The news was reported by
'The Athletic' on Wednesday. The main criticism of the format was that
most former players have no experience
with play-by-play. The format debuted on TNT
in February 2017. The broadcasts included ex-players
Greg Anthony, Kevin McHale
and Dennis Scott, among others. TNT described the format as a “conversational delivery to offer viewers deeper insights into the game directly from the athlete’s perspective.” It served as a compliment to TNT's 'Inside The NBA' show featuring Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal
and Kenny Smith.
