For long time viewers of TNT’s NBA coverage, it’s always a shock to see a studio show that isn’t hosted by Ernie Johnson.
Over the course of the last three seasons that has been the case on Tuesday nights, with Adam Lefkoe sliding into the role alongside Shaquille O’Neal, Candace Parker and Dwyane Wade.
Lefkoe is a longtime sports broadcaster, with his early work seeing him operate as an anchor for WHAS in Louisville, Kentucky.
In 2013 he joined Bleacher Report where he was involved with the video content with the company as well as NFL coverage.
Prior to the 2019-20 season it was announced that Lefkoe would join the weekly Tuesday crew, after the ‘Players Only’ night was scrapped.

As well as NBA coverage, Lefkoe also hosts Bleacher Report’s NFL program, ‘The Lefkoe Show’.
TNT’s Tuesday double-header coverage tips off with the Philadelphia 76ers heading to Madison Square Garden to meet the New York Knicks, before the Denver Nuggets battle the Utah Jazz in the night cap.
