Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - TNT is taking its NBA pregame studio show to New York for the opening night of the season, part of a three-day celebration.

Charles Barkley, Shaquille O'Neal, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson will broadcast live Oct. 29 from Flatiron Plaza, where there will be a basketball court, NBA 2K14 video game kiosks, and a large videoboard perched 30 feet above Broadway and Fifth Avenue for fans to watch the show, which will include live coverage of the Miami Heat's championship ring ceremony.

Celebrating its 30th year of NBA coverage, Turner Sports will begin with three straight nights of doubleheaders, including the Miami-Chicago opener that will be followed by the Lakers playing the Clippers.

NBA TV will televise two games Oct. 30 before TNT has another doubleheader the following night.
