    NBA Announces Supernatural Investigation Spin-Off ‘NBA Nights’


    NEW YORK—Facing financial shortfalls due to an abbreviated season and eager to compete
    with traditional prime-time entertainment, the National Basketball Association announced
    Friday it would soon debut NBA Nights, an hour-long suspense series in which the league's
    top stars investigate and battle supernatural threats to humanity.

    "This spring, your favorite stars leave the amazing on-court action of professional basketball
    behind and take their teamwork to an even darker, more dangerous arena—that of mankind's
    never-ending struggle with the forces of darkness," NBA commissioner David Stern said in a
    press conference. "These are world-class athletes—but can they survive confrontations with
    vampires, werewolves, vengeful ghosts, and their own inner demons? Tune in to NBA Nights
    this spring on NBA TV to find out."

    Although the paranormal-intrigue show will not debut until mid-March, the NBA will begin
    promoting the series during games later this month, beginning with the Timberwolves-
    Lakers meeting on Jan. 29. According to show insiders, Kobe Bryant will become suspicious
    that certain Minnesota players may be a different sort of wolf altogether when Darko Milicic
    checks in to the game unshaven, haggard, and playing with an unusual ferocity. After the
    final buzzer, when the Lakers discover deep gouges on the basketball—apparently sinister
    claw marks that "weren't made by the dribbling of anything human"—it's up to a trench-
    coated Kobe to chase down Milicic as a full moon casts ominous shadows across L.A.

    NBA Nights will reportedly feature a broad, constantly revolving cast of characters, with
    weekly episodes showcasing every franchise in the league: Emeka Okafor pursues
    zombies in New Orleans, Andrew Bogut and Mike Dunleavy battle thawed-out vikings in
    Milwaukee, and Kobe and his Lakers teammates realize the entire Los Angeles crowd is
    a swarm of soul-eating demons. However, the NBA is promising a larger, deeper story
    will unfold as the season goes on...CONTINUE READING THE ONION
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Big game tonight! Our records are a almost the same, a win at Phillips Arena would be a good win tonight!

    They've been playing well but i expect us to get the W.

    HUGE game tonight, but it's almost getting to the point that the Pacers should expect to win in road games like this.

    I can't wait till tip-off!! This is a very important Eastern Conference battle tonight.. I don't see any matchup we will have much trouble with against them, as long as we have our legs we should come out with the victory!

    I'll be leaving to head to CNN center around 5 (get there around 5:30).

    Gonna be my first Pacers game in like 8 years. Super pumped.

    Worried a little bit. Atlanta is a good team, and has always given us some fits. Glad 2 of their bigs are out. But they've lost 3 straight at home, all scoring 90 or less.

    I just feel like they'll blow up tonight. Hope guys came ready to play serious D tonight. Feed Roy!
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Man, hopefully foster comes back and can provide us some relief in these back to back games case unless we're blowing people out there really isn't much our bench is doing to allow us to spare our starters some minutes. Either that or we plan on getting something at the deadline that could net us a good backup center.

    We should win this game. Without Horford we are flat-out better than the Hawks are, and have been great on the road.

    Never know with these darn back2backs though, and the Hawks have been embarrassing lately during their homestand and will play with some fire most likely.

    Roy should be able to abuse Pachulia, and it would be nice to find a way to put granger on Smith, he did a great job last game in the second half.

    I can record it, but what are you wanting done with it after that?

    I may, or may not be able to oblige with any requests after that.

    Is there a reason ESPN has Hansbrough getting the start?

    It's a huge game, indeed. We need this W tonight. Losing to them will tie the series and bring us in an almost identical record with them. Beating them will put us even closer to the top and even further from the 5th seed. /Captainobvious

    It's a statement game, actually. A win would be just huge. Also, our very own members that will be in the stadium deserve to see this team winning. Do this for the fans

    Let's go!
