ESPN Craziest Game Console Wars
ESPN’s game console wars will feature two games each day, beginning on Saturday and running through the end of the year.
The first is the NBA 2K17 console war, which pits the NBA’s newest NBA champion, Kawhi Leonard, against his former team-mates.
It’s the second day of the war, and it’s the first day of a two-week break in which the NBA will hold a “major event” at the Staples Center, which is home to the Los Angeles Clippers.
The NBA 2k17 console wars begin at 6 a.m.
ET on ESPN3.
The NBA 2,NBA 2K,NBA2K17,NBA GameTime,NBA Live,NBA on TNT,NBA Countdown,NBA Mobile and NBA 2-D will all be on air during the break.ESPN has been a bit slow to announce games during the breaks, but they’ve been mostly reserved for events that are already live on the platforms.
Last year, the NFL opened its slate of live football games at 9 a.k.
ET, but ESPN didn’t do that this year.
There’s also the MLB playoffs, which will be broadcast on ESPN from April 3-6.
ESPN is also expected to hold its own sports broadcast at the World Series, although there hasn’t been any official word about that.
