The Miami Heat – you know, that little squad with Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, and a host of other dudes – play their first game on October 5 and NBA TV will be there.
Marv Albert will handle the play-by-play while hall of famer Kevin McHale and five-time NBA All-Star Chris Webber ride shotgun. Cheryl Miller lands the role of sideline reporter.
The tremendous trio (LeBron et al, not Alberts, etc.) won’t play the entire game, but the world will tune in regardless.
NBA TV, now in its 12th year, is available in 53 million U.S. homes and will feature up to 275 live games this year. Only 270 of them will feature the Heat.
TNT will televise the Heat’s first real game, an away tilt with the Boston Celtics on October 26.
