Desus & Mero will contribute to ESPN's NBA coverage

Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, hosts of Viceland’s late-night show Desus & Mero, will contribute to ESPN’s NBA coverage, the network announced Wednesday.

“ESPN is collaborating with comedy duo Desus Nice & The Kid Mero, Desus & Mero from Viceland, to create short videos featuring their commentary about the biggest NBA storylines on and off the court — from blockbuster trades to evolving hairlines, notable hirings to questionable fashion choices, as well as their bold predictions for the upcoming year. The shorts will be incorporated across ESPN’s NBA coverage on digital, social and TV platforms,” said the network in a statement.

The duo, who also host the Bodega Bous podcast, has garnered rave reviews for their show. They also starred in first season Jaden Smith’s Netflix series, Neo Yokio.
