NBC's coverage of the NBA playoffs tips off with a pair of weekend doubleheaders (April 25 and 26, 1 P.M. ET both days).

That slogan, announcing the leagues adopted cause, is even emblazoned on the chairs the players and coaches sit on. So what's the biggest news in the NBA this year? What development has general managers around the league drooling in anticipation? The decision that talented Louisiana State University center Shaquille O'Neal made to drop out of college after his junior year to play pro basketball. Maybe that slogan should read: "Stay in school...unless, of course, we can use you."
