Rocker plays ball with NBA in Haiti

Multi-year deal includes regular season games, playoffs, finals

Basketball fans in Haiti will see the 2006 NBA playoffs, thanks to locally born recording artist Wyclef Jean.

Jean, of the Fugees, is co-owner of Haiti’s free-to-air web Telemax, which has pacted with the National Basketball Assn. for the games.

The multi-year deal includes regular season games, playoffs and the finals.  

Fans in Haiti will also receive “NBA Action,” an original series program, and “NBA TV Daily,” a recap of the news, highlights and statistics from the league.

“This was inspired by my trips to Haiti where I saw the kids playing basketball in the streets,” says Jean.  “The next step is to put courts up for the kids.”

The 2006 NBA Playoffs will be seen in 215 countries with broadcasts in 43 languages via 164 TV partners.
