NBA launches playoff-oriented reality series on NBA TV

Can't get enough of the NBA playoffs? NBA TV has the perfect answer for you. According to Hollywood Reporter, the network, which generally airs only on DirecTV and Dish Network, is launching an eight-episode, half-hour show focusing on one player from each of the 16 playoff teams. Among the players featured, on and off the court, are Kevin Garnett of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Robert Horry of the LA Lakers. The first episode will air at 6 PM EDT on Tuesday, April 29.
Hmmm ... sixteen players in 30 minutes. It seems unlikely that the show will provide much of an in-depth look at the players' lives, at least during the first few episodes, with under 2 minutes per player....
