Marv Albert will be the last announcer to appear at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night, when the Knicks will face the Hawks in Round 5 of the NBA Playoffs First Round series.
The iconic combat man, first called the Knicks match in 1963, will virtually retire at the end of the finals of the Eastern Conference.
Meanwhile, Knicks is on the verge of losing, lagging behind the Hawks 3 to 1 in the 7th round series.
So this may also be the case for Albert, who works on TNT with Reggie Miller, an analyst who has his own history in Knicks and Gardens since he was playing the game. From the second round, TNT is moving towards putting all announcers on the scene.
Albert, who will turn 80 next week, has been working mostly off the monitor since the COVID-19 pandemic began, but he called the All-Star game directly in Atlanta.
TNT announced on Tuesday that Albert would return to the garden, but Miller spilled beans during the television broadcast of the match on Monday night.
Knicks-Hawks Game 5 could be Marv Albert’s final match as an announcer in the garden.
