NBA to Host ‘Social Media Awards’
On June 20th, NBA TV will host the first annual ‘Social Media Awards’ at 9 p.m. EST. The award show will celebrate players and teams who interacted with their fans via social media. The NBA is big on sites like Facebook and Twitter, and this show aims to give recognition.
The award show will be hosted by 15-time All-Star and current TNT analyst Shaquille O’Neal and his former Laker teammate Rick Fox. There will be 12 award categories and fans will have a chance to vote for six of them.
The Knicks will be well represented in this show as Jeremy Lin’s ‘Linsanity,’ Carmelo Anthony’s clutch game against the Bulls and Landry Fields’ TwitPic have been nominated for awards.
