Give Marc Kestecher, hosting the NBA Draft on ESPN Radio, credit for not only sticking to format but showing respect to every draftee that came to the set to be interviewed after doing their TV spot. Before every radio interview began, Kesty told each draftee: “You’re with Marc Kestecher, P.J. Carlesimo, Ramona Shelburne and Seth Greenberg.” Don’t know how many times he did it throughout the marathon radiocast but Kestecher never forgot to give proper intros. … Feeling sorry for Maggie Gray, and offer our condolences, that during Marc Malusis’ vacation next week she will spend a day on WFAN working with Kevin Durant “pal” Michael Rapaport. … On his recent stint (Pirates series) on SNY Gary Thorne got off a few good lines. Remember, he was working remotely from the Citi Field broadcast booth. Thorne began waxing poetic about the Pirates ballpark. “The only problem,” Thorne said, “is the broadcast booth is in another state.” … Does ESPN have a financial stake in Madden 22? On “SportsCenter” the AnchorHeads treat it like a news story. They even tease it while going to commercial. Disgraceful!
