By January 30, 2013

Follow me on:

Wheel of Fortune is continuing it's 30-season anniversary celebration with a special NBA theme week starting next Monday. The show will welcome guests, offer themed prizes, and offer a set decked out in true NBA style.

Pro players will be offering up congratulations to the show as well as introducing some amazing prizes. Other guests will actually appear on the show, including James Worthy, Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordon, and Grant Hill. Making recorded appearances are:
  • Kobe Bryant
  • Dwight Howard
  • Kevin Garnett
  • Paul Pierce
  • LeBron James
  • Dwyane Wade
  • Amar'e Stoudemire
  • John Wall
  • Andrew Bynum
  • Kevin Durant
  • Chris Bosh
  • Steve Nash
Even if you're not a huge NBA fan, I'm pretty sure some of those names will sound familiar!

Some of the prizes that contestants will be able to win include VIP packages containing tickets to home games for the New York Knicks, Washington Wizards, Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, and Boston Celtics, and the packages also include a shopping spree at NBAStore.com. And of course the set will be adorned with the NBA's finest, including Logoman appearing on the puzzleboard monitors (as pictured above).

Lots of folks are NBA-crazy this time of year, and it's nice to see Wheel of Fortune getting on board. Maybe next year we can have an NHL week?
