What Would a Lockout Mean for the NBA? (And NBA on TV?)

In addition to “The Decision,” a possible NBA lockout following the 2010-2011 season was a topic of discussion at Turner Sports’ NBA on TNT lunch earlier today.

TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley got the discussion started, after a reporter noted that New York Knicks fans that want to buy tickets when the Miami Heat come to town have to also buy tickets for a number of lesser games… as well as Rangers tickets.

“Fans have been getting screwed a long time, its nothing new,” Barkley said. “This is going to be a big year in sports. I think we have the best commissioner in sports [the NBA's David Stern], and he has to find a way to not have a lockout. Because to me, whether you are the NFL or NBA, I think it would be catastrophic to have a lockout in the middle of a recession.

“The average NBA star makes $5 million, we can’t say to people that guys making $10 or $15 million dollars are going to lock out or go on strike, the same thing with the NFL. That would be the tipping point, I truly believe that.”

Erin Andrews Makes ‘GMA’ Debut with Personal Story

andrews_8-5.jpgAs we previewed, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews made her debut as a special contributor to ABC’s “Good Morning America” this morning, with the stories of three women who’d also been victims of stalking.

“Robin, when everything blew up in my life, when it all went national, I received letters from women that said, ‘Hate to say this, but welcome to the fraternity,’” she told anchor Robin Roberts. “Doing this piece was a great way for me to heal. I didn’t get emotional during the piece, but before and after I talked to those women, I just said ‘Thank you, this is helping me.’”

Andrews’ reporting on “GMA” is part of a new deal she recently signed with ESPN, which was announced last month.

“It is a pleasure and an honor to be on this set with you, thank you so much for having me,” Andrews said before beginning her piece.

Look For More Erin Andrews on Good Morning America

Andrews071210.jpg ESPN reporter (and former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant) Erin Andrews has signed a new deal with the sports cable network. As part of the agreement, Andrews will become a regular contributor to “Good Morning America” on ESPN sister network ABC.

USA Today‘s Michael Hiestand spoke to Andrews, who told him that her “GMA” reports will not be solely sports-focused:

“Some will be fun and light-hearted,” she says. “I don’t take myself too seriously and like to have a good time.” But having been a victim of stalking, which resulted in a videotape surfacing online a year ago, she also wants to report on crimes against women: “With what I’ve been through, I want to talk to women who are victims. … And people haven’t seen I can have a serious tone. We feel it’s important to start off with serious issues so people take me seriously.”

“GMA” co-anchor Robin Roberts got her start at ESPN as well, before becoming a contributor and eventually anchor at the morning show.
