Check out the new DraftKings Network NBA programming schedule below and check out information on all programming here as well as how to watch, including on our new partner Google TV, here.

Here is an overview of the new DraftKings Network lineup of basketball shows for 2024:

Bully Ball with Rachel Nichols and Demarcus Cousins

Airing Mondays at 6 p.m. ET

Emmy Award-winning journalist Rachel Nichols and four-time NBA All-Star Demarcus Cousins sift through the 24/7 NBA news cycle and break down the stories you need to hear. Each week, Rachel and Boogie grade NBA overreactions, rank the best stories from NBA Twitter and deliver first-hand insight from a pair of hosts that have been around the league for decades.

All The Smoke Unplugged

Airing Tuesdays at 6 p.m. ET

Each week, All The Smoke hosts Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson connect to catch up on current events, personal lives, business and welcome friends of the program. Both Barnes and Jackson are so much more than retired NBA players, which is how most people view them. Outside of hoops, they are fathers, coaches, music lovers, social justice advocates, sneakerheads, entertainment consumers and much more. ATS Unplugged is the place where Matt and Stak offer their raw and unfiltered perspectives on pressing topics, whereas All The Smoke brings fans first-hand insight into the minds, lives and experiences of legendary athletes and personalities. New episodes will air beginning the week of January 8.

Forgotten Seasons

Airing Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET

Each NBA season, a champion is crowned and cemented in the history books forever. But for every champion, there are 29 other teams and hundreds of players whose accomplishments, stories and defining moments have been buried. On Forgotten Seasons, Dylan Dreyfuss, eight-year NBA vet Jelani McCoy and special guests shine a light on the under-appreciated players, teams and moments throughout NBA history.

All The Smoke

Airing Thursdays at 6 p.m. ET

The award-winning All The Smoke, featuring NBA champions Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, delivers first-hand insight into the minds, lives and pressing issues facing today’s athletes and personalities.

Known as fiery, intense competitors during their on-court careers, Barnes and Jackson are two of the most widely respected voices by today’s crop of NBA stars.

Now 200 episodes in, All The Smoke has welcomed guests such as Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Lil Wayne, Charles Barkley, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Kevin Hart, Snoop Dogg, Dwyane Wade, Dirk Nowitzki, Vince Carter, Shaquille O’Neal, Carmelo Anthony, Mark Cuban and many more.

Regardless of whether the guest is an NBA Hall of Famer, Grammy Award-winner or A-List Hollywood star, Barnes and Jackson can break guests down to give fans something new — a chance to see their favorite stars as their true, authentic selves.

Barnes and Jackson had complicated relationships with the media during their playing days, as seemingly every interview they participated in was spun into a click-bait piece. Now, they’re on the other side, with the sole mission of getting to know who the person sitting across from them really is.

Additionally, you will be able to catch up with the show or just relive the highlights or full episodes on the All The Smoke Productions YouTube page so you never miss a moment.

The All The Smoke network of shows join the existing stable of DraftKings Network shows already delivering slam dunk coverage to hoops hardcore.


Airing Tuesday-Friday at 5:30 p.m. ET

Oddball is the destination for Amin Elhassan, Charlotte Wilder and guests to serve a daily dose of NBA opinion, interviews, games and hi-jinks, putting their Sports Illustrated and NBA front office backgrounds to work in delivering a show that stands out among the crowd. They’ve recently talked about Draymond Green’s indefinite suspension and why Mark Cuban selling the Mavs is a MASSIVE red flag.

The Sweat

Airing Saturday-Sunday at 8 a.m. ET

On Saturdays and Sundays, The Sweat — with DraftKings personalities Emerson Lotzia, Steve Buchanan and Julian Edlow plus VSiN’s Josh Appelbaum — delivers fast-paced, entertaining analysis, bringing fans inside the game with insights on daily fantasy sports matchups, money lines, and prop bets. The show is also simulcast on VSiN.

Follow The Money

Airing Monday-Friday at 7 a.m. ET

Follow the Money, airing on DraftKings Network as well as on VSiN, features veterans of the Las Vegas sports betting scene, Mitch Moss and Pauly Howard, who combine their knowledge of sports, gambling and pop culture for the perfect show to start your day. They live the Vegas gambling lifestyle everyday and bring you along for the ride.

All in all, DraftKings Network is THE ACTION SPOT for NBA fans!
