Why Didn't ABC Air Player Intros for Game 1 of the NBA Finals?

Why Didn’t ABC Air Player Intros for Game 1 of the NBA Finals?

1. I don’t want to criticize the broadcast crew of Mark Jones and Mark Jackson for their call of Game 1 of the NBA Finals. They’re likely going to work only one game, they don’t normally work together and ABC/ESPN was in a tough position with two of their three broadcasters being on the shelf. You have to assume Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy will return from their COVID-19-related absences for Game 2 on Sunday and ABC will have its regular booth ready to go.

I will say that Jones’s calling the Celtics’ surreal fourth quarter and wild comeback an “insurrection” was an interesting word choice.
