I can’t wait for the mass cry of, “WTF. I THOUGHT I WAS WATCHING AVATAR.”
If you’ve ever wanted to watch life-sized NBA players come running at your face, and you want to neither be courtside or inhabit the body of Kim Kardashian, technological advances will be able to do just that in a little bit of time. Soon, the NBA will be 3D – and if they want to pull out all the stops, it will once again be scored by John Tesh.
On December 17th, the NBA makes the leap into the future (HAHAHA, LEAP, SEE WHAT I DI…*gunshot*) by pushing games to be broadcast in brand-spanking new 3-D — on ESPN’s new 3-D network, the first game of which will be the New York Knicks vs. the Miami Heat. So you’ll be able to see all of the monstrous, rim-shattering team histrionics of the Heat’s new squad playing 3 on 5 against Amare Stoudemaire and the Knicks.
The network will show eight regular-season games in 3-D during the 2010-2011 season, and then another six playoff games. The reason for so few? The NBA has to make sure that they have the necessary room for the equipment to film the NBA in 3-D.
We can only hope, in the tradition of other great 3-D experiences, their hair will start having sex. With other people’s.
