Candace Parker makes history as first woman to call NBA All-Star Game: 'I have to pinch myself'

Feb 8, 2023

Only two months into 2023, Candace Parker has managed to shake up the basketball world twice. In the WNBA star’s latest move, Parker will make her NBA All-Star Game analyst debut as the first woman to call the event.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and play-by-play announcer Brian Anderson will appear on the broadcast team for the midseason event as well, TNT announced Tuesday.

Green will join Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith for “Inside the All-Star Game,” an alternate broadcast on TBS while Anderson will call the NBA All-Star Game for the first time. He is usually seen doing play-by-play for Milwaukee Bucks games, the NCAA tournament and "NBA on TNT."

Parker, a two-time WNBA champion, unexpectedly announced that she'd sign with the Las Vegas Aces late last month. She has worked for Turner Sports since 2018.
