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 longtime members of the TNT crew that won’t be on our television screens this season is Sacramento Kings legend, Chris Webber.
Webber cut ties with TNT prior to the 2021 playoffs in what was said to be a mutual agreement, with Reggie Miller moving into his seat alongside Marv Albert.
C-Webb had been seen on TNT broadcasts since 2008, while in recent seasons he had become the regular next to Albert, who retired at the conclusion of the playoffs.
For opening night, Ian Eagle will call the plays alongside Stan Van Gundy for the matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets.
Van Gundy returns to the booth after a one season stint as head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans.
Webber may not be on NBA broadcasts to start the season, but he did fulfill a busy offseason, when he was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame after a long wait.
A 5-time All-Star and 5-time All-NBA player, it will feel a little odd not to have Webber on TNT this season.
