'Ray' also on net's sked

NBA TV, the National Basketball Assn.’s digital-cable network, has launched “NBA TV Screening Room,” a weekly series showcase for documentaries about the sport.

First up on its premiere night Sunday is “Whatever Happened to Micheal Ray,” co-produced by the NBA and TNT and narrated by Chris Rock.

Awarded an Emmy upon first playing on TNT, the docu focuses on Micheal Ray Richardson, a potentially great NBA player who destroyed his playing career when he got hooked on drugs.

The Feb. 1 docu is “NBA at 50,” which features highlights of some of the great athletes who played in the NBA throughout its 50-year history. Denzel Washington is the narrator.

A week later, NBA TV has scheduled “Bill Russell: My Life, My Way,” a profile of the great Boston Celtics center who led the team to 11 championships in 13 years.
