Published June 4, 2001
NBA Entertainment and NBC are teaming to produce an NBA Finals special to air at 5 p.m. ET Sunday.
"NBA at the Finals: Backstage with Ahmad Rashad," hosted by NBC Sports' Rashad, will provide "behind-the-scenes access" to the teams battling in the league's championship series, said Gregg Winik, executive vice president and executive producer for NBA Entertainment.
The program, which will precede the 7 p.m. tip-off of NBC's coverage of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, is expected to include appearances by several noteworthy players who have competed in previous NBA Finals.
