BREAK OUT THE GLASSES: Word around the World Congress is that FSN Southwest will be rolling out a 3D HD telecast March 25 for its coverage of Clippers-Mavericks. The game will be carried in Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban’s Landmark Theatres. The NBA rolled out its first 3D HD offering last year during an invitation-only event at the league's All-Star Game in Las Vegas. It then went public during the Finals in June, when about 14,000 people watched Game 2 between the Spurs and Cavaliers in 3D HD at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena.
