The Miami Heat got plenty of attention last season thanks to their Big 3, with a large fraction of their games being broadcast on national television.  Now with the lockout in place, the public could be deprived of several more Heat games that are scheduled to be shown on national TV, including their season opener on November 2nd in New York against the Knicks and their home opener the following night against the Orlando Magic.

Not to worry though Heat fans...forward Chris Bosh has taken it upon himself to get on TV when the fall rolls around.  On Monday NBC announced that Bosh will be featured on an episode of ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit".  He will be joined by fellow NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony, rapper Heavy D and actors Mechad Brooks (from ‘True Blood') and Dan Luria (the dad from ‘The Wonder Years').

The episode will air on September 28th at 10pm and is called "Personal Fouls", apparently about a youth basketball coach who is a suspected sexual predator.  This is about par for the course as far as Law & Order SVU goes.  As for Bosh, the network says that he will be shown in the episodes opening scene and climax. 

On a completely unrelated topic, here is some info on another member of the Heat's Big 3.  Dwyane Wade did an interview on ESPN 540AM in Milwaukee, and here is a link to what he had to say.  There is also link on the page if you want to hear the interview.  He touched on the difficult way last season ended, his teammate LeBron James, and the idea of players heading overseas due to the NBA lockout.
