NBA TV Adds ESPN Vet Matt Winer
While this addition starts 2010 off right for the network, NBA TV still can't be forgiven for taking Gary Payton away from us in 2009. Replacement Kevin McHale did just fun, as expected, but Payton's entertaining tenure was a real gift for viewers. If you're watching NBA TV regularly, you have an unhealthy relationship with pro basketball. An off-center dude like Payton can't hurt you.
Between Winer, Ernie Johnson and Marc Fein, I dare say TNT/NBA TV is beating ESPN/ABC 3-0 in the studio host wars. Sorry, Stu.
