Report: TNT cancels 'Players Only' NBA game broadcasts
TNT is reportedly pulling the plug on one of its more recent NBA broadcast experiments. The channel will no longer show games under the "Players Only" branding, sources told The Athletic's Richard Deitsch.
The weekly show featured an in-game and studio broadcast team comprised entirely of former NBA and WNBA players. It began airing on Monday nights in January 2017 before moving to Tuesdays during the 2017-18 season.
According to Deitsch, TNT will still create "Players Only"-branded content - just not full game broadcasts.
Some of the former players who appeared on the property included Grant Hill, Chris Webber, Isiah Thomas, Brent Barry, Dennis Scott, and Lisa Leslie, as well as current Los Angeles Sparks star Candace Parker.
