Everybody who follows and watches the NBA on a regular basis knows that TNT has a superior halftime show and post-game show than ESPN.
Now the folks at ESPN have come right out and admitted it.
During a conference call today to introduce Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose as two of the the new co-hosts for ESPN’s Wednesday and Friday doubleheader studio shows, the two spent about as much time discussing Turner Sports’ superiority as they did discussing anything else.
Here are some excerpts from the transcript:
Q. Jalen, why do you think you’ll be a good fit on the show?
JALEN ROSE: I’m really excited about the opportunity to join NBA Countdown. We all know that the standard for the NBA studio show was set, and rightfully so, by the TNT show lead by Ernie, Charles, Kenny and now they added Shaq.
