As you undoubtedly know, syndicated air personality JOHN TESH is an accomplished musician and songwriter. One of his earlier compositions happens to be the original "NBA on NBC" theme song, titled "Roundball Rock." Used for the NBA on NBC from 1991-2002. the song was played 12,000 times during that run.
As fate would have it, ABC decided to compose its own theme song when it won broadcasting rights for the NBA, Meanwhile, TESH's theme was sampled by NELLY for his song "Heart of a Champion" from his album, Sweatsuit.
In honor of the 2008 NBA finals, JOHN has decided to offer "Roundball Rock" as a free download this month on Tesh.com. You can sample it by clicking here.
