#TBJ becomes #TheStarters

[embedvideo id=”hfqpdjLD_RE” website=”youtube”]

The city of Atlanta has some new neighbors as the guys responsible for Canada’s own “Basketball Jones NBA Podcast” have relocated and are taking their talents to the good ‘ol US of A. Working out of NBA TV’s state-of-the-art Atlanta studios and enjoying all the resources that come with such a facility, the old #TBJ will now hit your multimedia timelines as “The Starters”.

The location of the production may have changed but the faces will remain the same as Skeets, Tas, Trey, Leigh, Matt and JD are all back for season 2013/14.

From NBA.com release:

The Starters will take the floor in time for the start of the season with a daily podcast (Monday through Friday; hosted on NBA.com and also available on iTunes) and a one-hour NBA TV show, an extension of the podcast, airing weekdays regularly at 6 p.m. ET. The Starters will also feature a blog, edited by Kerby, hosted on NBA.com.

While there has been, and will continue to be bigger NBA news to talk about, this is a win for NBA bloggers everywhere when you consider this group’s humble beginnings. Their show was originally filmed in the living room of Producer JD’s home before their online momentum started to build.
