The NBA announced the schedule for the first half of its 2020-2021 season on Friday, and teams are getting creative with the schedule reveals. The Washington Wizards — fresh off a blockbuster trade — really went the extra mile, and had CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and John King present the schedule in an election-esque format.
As was the case during last month’s election coverage on CNN, Blitzer serves as the host (of “NBA Season in America”), while King provides the fast-paced analysis from his Magic Wall map.
Watch Blitzer and King break down the Wizards’ schedule with the Key Battleground Arenas, Key Matchup Alerts, incumbents, and more election jargon:
It's NBA Season in America!
