Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

You know who Marv Albert is. And even if you do not think you do, turn on "NBA on TNT" with the sound muted. In fact, try and watch any of his famous highlights without his voice, and you will quickly remember exactly who he is. The "Voice of Basketball" has been calling NBA playoff games on TNT since 1999, but New York basketball fans remember him as The "Voice of the Knicks" for over 35 years, and casual sports fans have heard his sonorous tenor over six Super Bowls, various NCAA tournament games, and even the Wimbledon Tennis Championship. But while his famous voice was enough to land him in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1997, it wasn't enough to clear him of a sexual assault charge that very same year, leaving an indelible black mark on an otherwise legendary career. But in the years since, Albert has returned to his seat calling basketball as the lead play-by-play announcer for "NBA on TNT," and reclaimed his career as one of the most popular and well-recognized sportscasters in history.
