Two NBA All-Star forwards are headed to court. And, no, we're not talking about Zach Randolph and the alleged case of the drug dealer beaten with billiard sticks.
TVGuide.com reports that New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh will both appear on an upcoming basketball-themed episode of the network crime drama, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Anthony and fellow NBA star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat will each make cameo appearances in the opening scene and the episode's climax. The episode, titled "Personal Fouls," focuses on a youth basketball coach (The Wonder Years' Dan Lauria) who is suspected of being a sexual predator.The site also notes that Anthony will appear as himself, meaning that he will likely be charged with robbing Knicks fans of their championship dreams by playing lackluster defense.
Also appearing in the episode is True Blood and Necessary Roughness star Mehcad Brooks, who plays Prince Miller, a fictional basketball superstar who was once one of the suspected coaches' prodigies.
It's not yet clear what role Bosh will play, but if tearful courtroom testimony is required, and it often is on Law & Order, he was an excellent choice.
Reuters.com notes that the episode starring Anthony and Bosh will be the series' second of the season and is scheduled to air on NBC on Sept. 28 at 10 p.m.
