NBA On ABC
ABC's coverage of the NBA on ESPN, known as NBA Sunday Showcase on ABC or ESPN NBA on ABC since 2010, is a weekly presentation of National Basketball Association games on ABC television network in the United States, replacing the NBA on NBC. NBA Sunday typically airs on afternoons at 1:00 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. ET. When not airing games in its usual Sunday afternoon slot, it is known as ESPN's Coverage of the NBA on ABC. During the NBA Finals, ABC presents games in prime time, mostly at 9:00 p.m. ET, when it is known as ESPN's Coverage of the NBA Finals on ABC or ESPN NBA Finals on ABC.
Since its return to ABC in 2002, the show has been produced by sister network ESPN (a similar arrangement was made when ABC broadcast National Hockey League games), and since 2006 has transferred all of its operations to ESPN, when ABC Sports became ESPN on ABC (ABC Sports however, is still a separate legal entity). Since then, it has been an ESPN program, and only has been identified as ABC's coverage of the NBA on ESPN. This is the second time NBA games have aired on ABC; from 1965 to 1973, ABC was the main carrier of the NBA.
It was announced on June 27, 2007 that the NBA on ABC had been renewed through the 2015–2016 season.
