ESPN, ABC, TNT and NBA-TV release their 2019-20 schedules; No word yet on talent changes, if any

Between the four outlets, LeBron and the Lakers will appear a whopping 44 times; Zion Williamson and the Pelicans on ESPN during pre-season

The network partners of the NBA , ESPN, ABC and TNT, announced their schedules of televised games for the coming season. Those carried by NBA-TV which is managed by Turner Sports are also included on the master schedule.

The press releases by the networks and the NBA had no references to talent. Yet Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson will be the lead team for ABC and ESPN. Breen has become the de facto Voice of the NBA in recent years.  He has called the last 14 NBA Championships.

As for Turner, I was told by a source that if no announcements are made to the contrary that Marv Albert and Chris Webber will return as the lead broadcast team. Still, there are reports that final decisions have not yet been made with regard to Albert retaining the top role.

THE FULL SCHEDULE BY DATE IS JUST BELOW.

For those of you keeping score of team appearances:

  • Top 5 appearances: The usual cast of characters: LA Lakers 44; GS 43; LA Clippers 38; Boston and Milwaukee 34
  • Bottom 5: Charlotte and Cleveland 3; Memphis and Washington 4; Minnesota, Orlando and Detroit 6
  • The champion Toronto Raptors are on 19 times
