ESPN to Air 31 NBA Vignettes in 31 Days on "SportsCenter"
ESPN is gearing up for the 2013-14 NBA season by airing 31 original vignettes on top NBA storylines throughout the 31 days of October. The vignettes, which will focus on a different storyline each day, will begin on Tuesday, October 1 and will air across SportsCenter and ESPN.com's NBA section.
Several ESPN NBA commentators are participating in the project, including Jalen Rose, Tim Legler and Stephen A. Smith. Smith will narrate the first vignette, which focuses on the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat and their chances of a three-peat this season. Other storylines will include Doc Rivers joining the Los Angeles Clippers, the transformation of the Brooklyn Nets, Derrick Rose and his return from injury, Dwight Howard in Houston, and more.
