Fans interested in owning part of the set for Turner Network Television’s Inside the NBA should get their eBay bids ready.
The network is teaming up with online auction site eBay Inc. (www.ebay.com) to sell items from the set of its National Basketball Association studio show, as a new and improved set will debut at the start of the league’s 2005-06 season.
TNT said all items will be signed by hostErnie Johnson and analystsKenny Smith andCharles Barkley, and all proceeds will go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
“We felt that this was an easy decision and creative way to help a worthy cause, and we're happy to team up with great organizations like the MDA and eBay to offer these signed, original items to fans and viewers of the show," Turner Sports president David Levy said in a prepared statement.
Bidding kicks off Tuesday at 7 p.m. (EST) on a special area of eBay’s site (www.ebay.com/nbaontnt).
