Heat vs Knicks: First NBA Game to Be Televised in 3D

The future is here. The future of sports television broadcasting, that is, as LBJ and co. will be seen in 3D as they face against New York at the Garden. From the ESPN press release: “The first-ever NBA telecast on ESPN 3D will feature the Miami Heat and its new core of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh versus the New York Knicks and Amare Stoudemire at Madison Square Garden – the Heat’s first trip to the Garden this season – on Friday, Dec. 17, at 7 p.m. ET. This highly anticipated matchup will be the first of eight regular-season NBA games on the new network. Other schedule highlights include Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers appearing twice on ESPN 3D (Friday, Jan. 21, and Friday, Feb. 11) as well as the Orlando Magic with Dwight Howard making two appearances – Friday, Feb. 25, and Friday, March 4. In addition to the regular season, ESPN 3D will also televise six games during the NBA Playoffs, including three Western Conference Finals games.”

    Don’t you need a 3-D TV? What a crock of sh*t.

  • MikeC.

    This is Lebron’s fault.

    Who wants to wear weird eyeglasses while watching? Although if they show timeouts (meaning cheerdancers) on 3D that would be good.

    Cosign Eboy. 3D is a stupid fad. Individual sets of 3D glasses for TVs are around $300. Stupid.

    Does anyone need to see Eddy Curry in 3D? (Yes, he is still playing basketball. Well, he’s on the Knicks roster…)

  • Dale Wittig

    Let me know when they start broadcasting in Wonkavision.

    great now all of you guys can finaly expierence what it’s like when lebrons croach hits your face while he dunks over you. 3d is wack and overrated. in a cinema it’s ok with some movies but with most movies it just sucks furthermore it’s bad for your eyes and in a cinema the sound is too loud as well. the pro’s don’t outweigh the cons therefore it sucks

    LDR4- Agreed.. Its a stupid fad that was big in the 80s, then disappeared. Now that they can make it look “better” they think thats what we want to see.. P.S. Avitar sucked!

    A little off subject, but anyone know the song or artest during the f.o.t.s-Mcdyess video.. I wish during the clip(s) the song title was mentioned.

  • vtrobot

    eddy has looked 3D on regular television for years now.

  • frank

    I’ve seen 3-D TV in stores… It’s actually a far lower quality picture than HD, just some of the things look a little closer to you. And EVERYONE watching needs a set of 3D glasses, which cost somewhere in the $300 range.
