Disney XD Partners With NBA To Launch "My Life As An NBA Rookie"
Disney XD has “teamed up with the NBA for a special titled ‘My Life as an NBA Rookie’ that will give viewers an inside look at some of the biggest basketball stars in their first year in the league,” according to Kimberly Nordyke of the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. The special will be hosted by actor Billy Unger, and “features exclusive footage” of Hornets F and No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis practicing with the '12 USA Basketball team. It also will “take fans behind the scenes at the NBA Draft Combine and NBA Draft, show how players mentally and physically prepare for training camp and opening night, reveal entertaining rookie duties and show how they sometimes get pranked by returning players.” Lakers G Kobe Bryant and C Dwight Howard, Heat F LeBron James, and Clippers F Blake Griffin and G Chris Paul are “among the NBA stars who will appear in the special” (HOLLYWOODREPORTER.com, 10/8).
