ESPN Radio will provide coverage of the 2017 NBA Finals, highlighted by Hall of Famer Hubie Brown calling his 16th NBA Finals (TV and radio) — the most for any NBA commentator. He will join play-by-play veteran Marc Kestecher and reporter Marc Stein for each game. Host Kevin Winter and analyst Jon Barry will handle pre-game and halftime on-site studio coverage. ESPN Radio will precede each NBA Finals game with a one-hour pre-game show beginning at 8pm ET on weekdays and 7pm on Sundays.
In addition, Jalen & Jacoby, hosted by ESPN NBA analyst Jalen Rose and David Jacoby, will air one-hour NBA Finals preview specials at 7pm on each weeknight of the game broadcasts. Freddie and Fitz, hosted by Freddie Coleman and Ian Fitzsimmons, will air immediately after each weeknight game until 3am, and will offer full postgame coverage and analysis with live players and coaches reactions, as well as reporting from ESPN Radio’s Cleveland (WKNR-AM) and Bay Area (KNBR 680 AM and 1050 AM) stations.
