NBA Inside Stuff is a television program airing on NBA TV and previously aired on NBC for many years, then on ABC, featuring behind the scenes activities of NBA players. The program also includes features on fitness and fundamentals of basketball. Previously hosted by Ahmad Rashad (and once co-hosted by Julie Moran, and then Willow Bay) and Summer Sanders, the show is now hosted by former NBA star Grant Hill and Kristen Ledlow.

Overview[edit]

NBA Inside Stuff served as a sort of recap and analysis show reviewing the week's previous games in the NBA, complete with top plays and special moments. The hosts would also interview top NBA players outside of game situations, often discussing issues relevant to them.

The show first aired on October 27, 1990 and ended in 2005. After an eight year hiatus, NBA TV brought back Inside Stuff with new hosts and a new look.[1] The revamped show began airing on November 2, 2013 on NBA TV.

Broadcasting[edit]

NBA Inside Stuff was usually the bridge program for NBC between TNBC and Saturday afternoon programming, usually sports. In the late 1990s the program received some adaptation in order to meet the FCC's educational and informational requirements. When it moved to ABC, it aired between that network's ABC Kids morning lineup and afternoon sports programming (occasionally being moved to Sundays during college football season.) ABC replaced NBA Inside Stuff with the similarly themed NBA Access with Ahmad Rashad. As its name implies, Rashad was the host. NBA Inside Stuff was moved at that time to NBA TV.

As previously mentioned, NBA TV announced that after an eight year hiatus, NBA Inside Stuff would return with Grant Hill and Kristen Ledlow as hosts. The commercial for the then-newly resurrected NBA Inside Stuff later aired on NBA TV.[2]
