Kevin Harlan should get Turner’s lead NBA play-by-play job

1. Almost a year ago, I wrote a column saying Turner should replace the retired Marv Albert with Kevin Harlan as its lead NBA voice.

I’m back to throw that reminder out again as the Western Conference finals loom.

Turner went the entire season without proclaiming a No. 1 play-by-play voice, but an announcement has to be made soon.

There have been some good signs that Turner will do the right thing and give this job to Harlan, who is more than deserving. He called one of two play-in games that Turner aired Tuesday and he will call Turner’s lone play-in game Friday. He also got the assignment to call the NBA All-Star Game earlier this season.
