The full schedule will be announced today. But LeBron James will soon throw down a monster dunk in 3D when ESPN broadcasts the Miami Heat-New York Knicks game on December 17th from Madison Square Garden. The matchup will be one of 8 regular season games and 6 playoff matchups to be broadcast in 3D. ESPN has been ahead of the curve in terms of the technology: it screened the 2007 All-Star game in 3D in select cities at special events, and launched with World Cup soccer matches in June, and will air the 2011 BCS national championship game. But this adds a new high profile sport. DirecTV, Comcast, and AT&T all carry ESPN 3D, but Time Warner does not. So that puts the total amount of households receiving 3D at around 45 million. Of course, you need a 3D television set.
