ESPN To Shadow The Charlotte Bobcats For A Day

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

I'm not sure why they chose Charlotte for this experiment, but this Friday ESPN is going to follow around the North Carolina based NBA team for an entire day. And when I say an entire day....I mean an ENTIRE day. Here's the schedule for this Friday's "Event"....

-Behind-the-scenes footage of Charlotte’s Adam Morrison rehabbing from injury
-Tour of the arena by Bobcats rookie Jared Dudley
-Interviews during ESPN Radio shows, beginning with Mike & Mike in the Morning (6-10 a.m.)
-ESPN Radio’s The Stephen A. Smith Show originating from Charlotte chats with Bobcats personnel, on-site blogging throughout the day by TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott
-Bobcats head coach Sam Vincent and a select player miked for sound during the game
-In-game interview with Vincent
-Robotic locker room cameras with audio (pre-game, halftime and post-game)
-Day-long insider access into coaches meetings, film review and team shootaround
-Interviews with players and team personnel throughout the day
-Footage of coaches and players arriving to the arena
-Players interacting with the coaching staff on the court prior to the game.
Dan Shulman and Hubie Brown are on the call and it should be a pretty interesting day to say the least. It's kind of disappointing there's not Jordan stuff in there , but I must say that a look into Adam Morrison's rehab would be pretty eventful considering I completely forgot he was in the league.

An entire day with the Bobcats has to include the 6 hour blackjack session with MJ.

This is a good idea though.

ESPN is acknowledging the Bobcats exist? I guess they didn't want to follow the Knicks around, and watch Isiah do some sexual harassin'.

The laziest fucking thing editors/producers can think up is the Day in the Life story. It takes absolutely zero imagination to conceive. I lost count of how many times this "idea" came up during the slow news cycles (I worked for a Denver newspaper). No surprise it shows up at this time of year.

Stephen A...Live from Charlotte...I don't care where he does his 'show'...It's freegan terrible...I was greeted today by him yelling the opening notes of a Coldplay tune...I shouldn't be surprised that a lousy host pimps a lousy band...

If I wanted to get yelled at, I'd seek out a used-car or a discount-furniture commercial...


Worthless radio...The WWL truly misses Dan Patrick...And so do I...
