NBA Finals En Route To ESPN 3D

ESPN 3D will show this year’s NBA Finals in, yes, 3D. This is the first time the NBA Finals will be in 3D.

The Finals, which will take place in June, will probably be between the San Antonio Spurs and the New York Knicks. (That’s a safe bet, right?) And that’s just as well: the very first NBA game broadcast in 3D, which took place last December, was between the Knicks and the Lakers.

This is the same ESPN, mind you, that admitted to having problems trying to figure out this whole 3D thing, though basketball, being played on a smaller surface, probably lends itself to easier 3D production than, say, football or soccer.
