With LeBron James on roster, Miami Heat in high television depand for 2010

J. Pat Carter, AP Photo"On Christmas, a Miami Heat-Los Angeles Lakers matchup to cap off an ABC doubleheader is a strong possibility, with Orlando-Heat among other options if the NBA opts for a Celtics-Lakers Finals rematch," Barry Jackson writes, adding, "What about Cleveland-Miami?" He quotes ABC/ESPN lead NBA announcer Mike Breen as saying, "That would be a more negative story [on Christmas].'' Jackson adds, "TNT hopes to get the first regular-season Heat game because it has rights on opening night, which is Oct. 26. ESPN carries a double-header the next night and assuredly wants the Heat, too. Either network also might carry a Heat preseason game."
