Air Jordan On Airwaves For Playoffs
CBS Sports has its eye on Michael Jordan.
Having scheduled its pro basketball national telecasts before last summers college draft, CBS TV had no idea who Jordan would be playing for. Nobody imagined the rookie from North Carolina would take the league by storm. In addition to becoming one of the games most exciting stars, Jordan has blossomed into a marketing bonanza. His charismatic smile can be seen on television commercials, billboards and advertisements in newspapers and magazines. His Air Jordan gym shoes and spring line of active wear are taking off like the latest fashion from Paris. He is the National Basketball Associations hottest property.
We will be televising four playoff games next weekend, and our intent is to show one Chicago Bulls game, said CBS vice president of programming Jim Harrington. We are very excited about Michael Jordan. There is no question Michael is an attraction. We wanted to show him during the regular season, but couldnt fit it into our schedule.
I can tell you not only professionally, but as a father of three boys, Michael Jordan is hot. My youngest son is 12 years old and he is very conscious of Jordan. He wants a pair of the Air Jordan shoes.
Bulls coach Kevin Loughery was a regular member of CBS postseason broadcasting team, but this year hell have a lesser role with the Bulls in the playoffs for the first time since 1981.
When asked about his reduced on camera time, Loughery responded, Id much rather be doing this. Its much better this way. I enjoy it, but if it means less television work, hey, I hope we can stay for the whole thing.
On the more practical side, Harrington said CBS wont consult with Loughery until the Bulls are out of the playoffs.
We have been very happy with Kevins work the last four years,
Harrington said. We hope to use him as an analyst in the studio or another on site analyst later in the playoffs, if and when the Bulls are knocked out.
Harrington said NBA ratings during the regular season were up 5 percent over last year and he expected the playoffs to show a similar increase. The current CBS contract with the NBA runs through next season. Harrington said the network and the league will negotiate this fall for another pact, and it could include a greater number of games.
Can the Boston Celtics become the first team in 16 years to win consecutive championships? It hasnt happened since 1969, when Bill Russell was a player coach. Says Philadelphia coach Billy Cunningham: As much as teams shot for them in the past, because they were one of the best teams in the league, now they will be shooting for them because of another reason they are world champions.
Looking at a first round matchup with the Celtics, with his tongue firmly in cheek, Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Harry Weltman said:
They say the team that comes out of this series has a good chance to win it all. The Celtics enter the series with a healthy respect for the Cavs, a team that overcame a 2 19 start. So much for the rap Cleveland has,
Bostons Larry Bird said after the Celtics edged the Cavs 121 115 Thursday in Richfield, Ohio. We always respected the Cavs, but now we admire them as well. They ran us around in circles.
A prospective Lakers Houston Rockets showdown for the Western Conference finals would bring about another confrontation between the Lakers Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Houstons Ralph Sampson. Laker coach Pat Riley assigned Jabbar to Sampson during the season, forcing the 7 foot 4 inch forward to move outside, where he was less effective. When someone hinted that Houstons Bill Fitch was outcoached, Fitch shot back: Ill tell you, that Pat Riley is a genius. One of these days, in a year or two, hes going to have to guard Ralph with someone else other than Kareem and figure out a way to stop him.
New Jersey coach Stan Albeck warns to keep an eye on the Milwaukee Bucks in the playoffs. What they are doing is not only winning, but theyre beating everybody by large margins. Theyre playing so well, gearing up for the playoffs. I think their chances are very good. Former Boston star Bob Cousy chimes in: Milwaukees got the right mix of players in terms of not too many shooters and generally all good defensive players. Theyve got two superstars (Terry Cummings and Sidney Moncrief) they can go to when they need it, and both are dependable.
