The Professional Basketball Writers Association has recognized four ESPN NBA reporters in the 2019 PBWA Blumenthal Memorial Writing Contest.

Kevin Arnovitz and Dave McMenamin were named first-place winners – Arnovitz won the magazine-length features category for his story about a chief revenue officer for an NBA team who stole millions of dollars from that team. McMenamin won the news category for his story “Inside LeBron James’ and Adam Silver’s make-or-break moments in China.” Also honored were Baxter Holmes (second place, magazine-length features) and Ohm Youngmisuk (honorable mention, moderate-length features).
