NBA "Hardwood Classics Game", 70's style silent broadcast meets 2006-style high definition


Old school meets new school February 26 when the Orlando Magic face the Houston Rockets at home. The NBA will broadcast a "silent" game with no announcers, only sounds from the court and the arena announcer. The game will be available on NBA TV in high definition and surround sound, and should really provide a "you are there" experience for the viewers.

The Magic will wear uniforms from their inaugural 1989 season, and music from the 70's will be played only during game stoppages.

This all sounds well and good, but if they're going to do a 70's style broadcast, why not show two teams that were around in the 70's?
