The Wizards will go through a lot of changes this offseason, but hopefully that won’t include a change in the broadcast booth. As you may have heard, NBC Sports Washington has not picked up play-by-play man Steve Buckhantz’s option for next season, leaving his status in doubt for the future. As things stand, Sunday’s game against the Knicks could be his final call since TNT is broadcasting the season finale against the Celtics.
Buckhantz has been a staple in the broadcasting booth since 1997 and it would be a shame to see this be his final season in the booth. If you want to show your support for Buckhantz’s career, BreakingT has created a new shirt to honor his legacy. You can get it here.
