The NBA on TNT is set to have a different feel this season, with a number of familiar faces and voices missing from the broadcast.
One of the old TNT crew members who won’t appear on our TV screens this season is Sacramento Kings legend, Chris Webber.
Webber cut ties with TNT ahead of the 2021 qualifiers in what was said to be a mutual agreement, with Reggie Miller moving to his seat alongside Marv Albert.
C-Webb has been seen on TNT broadcasts since 2008, while in recent seasons he has become a regular alongside Albert, who retired at the end of the playoffs.
On opening night, Ian Eagle will call up the plays alongside Stan Van Gundy for the match between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Brooklyn Nets.
Van Gundy returns to the booth after one stint as head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans.
Webber may not be on the NBA broadcast to start the season, but he completed a busy season, when he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame after a long wait.
A 5-time All-Star and 5-time All-NBA player, it would be strange if Webber hasn’t been on TNT this season.
