According to ANDREW MARCHAND of New York Post , TNT could have a completely new look with its top NBA broadcast team next season.

Albert, who turns 80 in June, has worked NBA games for nearly six decades. He is in the final season of a five-year deal he signed when he was 75. In February, Albert told The Post his career was “winding down.” Still, nothing is official yet.

Webber has been on TNT’s No. 1 team for a few seasons but has yet to fully connect with the audience.

Marchand noted that Webber has failed to connect with the NBA audience over the past few seasons. He said the feeling that the former NBA star won’t return “has been growing for a while.”

According to Marchand, Turner was not happy with Webber after he made a last-minute decision not to do NCAA Tournament games.

Marchand noted several former NBA players could fill in for Webber next season.

He highlighted Reggie Miller and Grant Hill as possible replacements.
