ESPN Music will be collaborating with Quality Control Music artists throughout the season to celebrate marquee match ups.
This Saturday, LeBron James takes the court for his first regular season home game against the Houston Rockets, and LeBron fan and friend Quavo recorded an original track to celebrate the debut, which will air on ESPN Saturday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 PT/10:30 ET on ESPN.
This collaboration with Quavo represents the first of the series of the Quality Control Music partnership with ESPN and will continue to feature different Quality Control artists contributing verses throughout the season, all produced by DJ Durel.
ESPN’s five-game opening week slate culminates with the Rockets vs. Lakers matchup when LeBron James and James Harden take the court. The NBA Finals broadcast team of Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy, Mark Jackson, and Doris Burke will call the action. The NBA Countdown’s pre-game and halftime shows, as well as the NBA After The Buzzer post-game show, will emanate from just outside of the Staples Center at Chick Hearn Ct. All ESPN NBA game and studio programming are also available to stream on the ESPN App.
