Basketball fans should be excited because NBA Saturday Primetime is returning to ABC at the end of the month. The league is plotting some big matchups that may have playoff implications and/or will be previews of what we’ll see in the postseason.
ESPN is trying to raise the awareness with a commercial featuring Lil Jon, where he turns his massive hit “Turn Down For What?” into a promo spot for the upcoming series of games.
