About NBA Shootaround (TV Show)

NBA Shootaround is a pregame show for ESPN's coverage of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Typically, the program airs at 7:30 p.m, prior to ESPN's presentation of NBA Friday, though it does occasionally air prior to ESPN's NBA Wednesday coverage. The show is sponsored by Kia Motors, giving it the official name KIA NBA Shootaround, and aired live from ESPN/ABC's Times Square studios from 2003 to 2006. Originally, NBA Shootaround was hosted by Kevin Frazier, with analyst Tim Hardaway. The original program was broadcast out of one of ESPN's Bristol studios. Some of the features the first edition of NBA Shootaround contained were Walton's World, in which NBA analyst and legend Bill Walton would speak about matters related to the NBA, and Need to Know, in which host Frazier would go over the headlines of the night's upcoming NBA action.
