ABC wants revenge on CNN, re-airs LeBron James Nightline interview
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: You knew ABC would respond.
Clearly, the rights holder for the NBA Finals wasn't pleased that LeBron James' upcoming interview on CNN with Larry King was making headlines. After all, CNN is ABC's rival. And The Two Kings were upstaging the championship series.
In an attempt to minimize the King interview, ABC announced on Thursday that they'd be re-airing their Nightline interview with James following game one of the NBA Finals.
So ABC and CNN are competing over James. This will be repeated on July 1st when the three-man becomes a free agent, only teams, not media conglomerates, will be doing the competing.
Watch the Nighline feature with James and get at us with thoughts in the comment box below.
