The Boston Celtics will honor the CSNNE broadcast duo of Tom Heinsohn and Mike Gorman prior to tonight’s game against the Indiana Pacers.
During a pre-game ceremony, Celtics CEO and Co-owner Wyc Grousbeck and Celtics Captain Paul Pierce will present commemorative Celtics jerseys with the number “30” to Mike and Tommy on center court.
Comcast SportsNet will have live coverage of the presentation and special features throughout its telecast of the game.
On Friday at 7:30 p.m., Comcast SportsNet will debut 30 Seasons of Mike & Tommy, a special retrospective on Mike and Tommy’s broadcast career. 30 Seasons of Mike & Tommy will relive their best highlights and signature calls; include a candid sit-down in which Mike and Tommy interview each other; and tributes from celebrities, players and NBA dignitaries. The special will also feature segments on their beginning, the Garden, the 90’s, Tommy vs. the referees, Tommy Points, “I love Walter,” “Got It,” and their 1000th game.
On a related note, the website Awful Announcing has an interview with the decidedly-not-awful Gorman.
