Two-time WNBA champion and Hall of Famer Lisa Leslie is set to serve as color commentator during Thursday night’s broadcast of the inaugural Commissioner’s Cup championship game.
Leslie has many years of experience in the booth, including working as a TV analyst for the Orlando Magic. More recently, she’s served as an analyst for the BIG3 3×3 basketball season when she’s not coaching the defending champion Triplets. Last month, Leslie also coached the WNBA All-Stars to a win over the United States Olympic team in Las Vegas.
Lisa Byington will join Leslie on Thursday night as play-by-play commentator. Byington serves as the play-by-play voice of the Chicago Sky and, most recently, called soccer games for NBC at the Tokyo Olympics.
The inaugural Commissioner’s Cup game between the Connecticut Sun and the Seattle Storm is set to tip off at 9 p.m. ET exclusively on Prime Video.
