It’s no surprise that ESPN and the NBA have picked the upcoming season’s most heavily publicized team to be featured when the league broadcasts its first game in 3-D. The New York Times reports that the game will include the Miami Heat, featuring its new "big three"–LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.
The "other" team, by the way, will be the New York Knicks. The game is scheduled for Dec. 17 and will air on ESPN 3-D.
ESPN 3-D plans to show eight regular-season NBA games during the 2010-11 season, and six more during the postseason. The channel is currently available in 45 million homes, on DirecTV, Comcast and AT&T, with Time Warner Cable expected to add it soon.
