â†µI reached out to ESPN publicist Nate Smeltz to confirm a note on Sports Media Watch, and the news is correct. â†µâ†µ
â†µVitale and Shulman will call Jazz-Spurs on Jan. 20. The ESPN NBA trio will head back to college to call Wake Forest-North Carolina. â†µâ†µ
â†µI'll ask the same question I did last season: Does this matter to you at all? Does it enhance/take away from the experience in any way? All I remember about last season was the NBA guys complaining about Duke players taking charges and the lack of a restricted area under the rim. I'm sure it bugged Duke fans, but I'm betting the rest of the country nodded and applauded. â†µâ†µ
