As the NBA season grinds toward the Finals, it’s looking like the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors could once again be competing for the championship. Cleveland still has to dispatch the winner of the Boston Celtics vs Philadelphia 76ers while Golden State can look forward to a tough matchup against the victor of the Houston Rockets vs Utah Jazz. If the playoffs are any indication, and they usually are, the finals will probably be chippy, as plenty of individual grudges have developed throughout the season. While all eyes are on the trophy, after it’s all said and done, the NBA is planning some fun.
Turner Sports and the NBA announced details for the second annual event in a press release Thursday. TNT will air a live broadcast of the season-ending bash, which will include appearances by the Inside the NBA crew of Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal.
More information about the musical performers and celebrity presenters will be confirmed at a later date. The event debuted last year with hip-hop singer and noted basketball fan Drake serving as host. And, wouldn’t you know it–VIP Concierge has tickets to the festivities that are taking place at Barker Hangar in gorgeous, tropical Santa Monica, California on 06/24/2019. If you’re the type who just can’t get enough of that roundball stuff, you owe it to yourself to get your passes to the show immediately, before others beat you to it.
Fans will get to decide on the winners in the following categories via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
