Reggie Miller gifts NBA broadcaster Marv Albert with Larry O’Brien Trophy (Video)

As his 55-year broadcasting career reaches its end, Marv Albert was gifted with the Larry O’Brien trophy by Reggie Miller.

The Eastern Conference Finals is set to be a special one. Not only is it due to the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks vying for their first NBA Finals appearance in decades, but it will be the final series legendary broadcaster Marv Albert calls before he officially retires after 55 years. Given this will be the last time calling a game from the sidelines, broadcast partner Reggie Miller decided to give him an awesome present.

Prior to Game 2 on Friday night, Miller and Turner Sports presented Albert with his very own Larry O’Brien Trophy in honor of all he has done during his career.

Upon receiving the enormous trophy, Albert was stunned, before jokingly asking how he is going to take it home. Miller then joked that the trophy was one of the six Michael Jordan won in his career, and that he would not notice if it was missing.

As for Game 2, it was a one-sided blowout in favor of the Bucks, who defeated the Hawks 125-91. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way for the Bucks with 25 points (11-for-18 from field), nine rebounds and six assists, while guard Jrue Holiday scored 22 points (9-for-14 from field) and dished out seven assists.

It was a great moment for Albert, who called 13 NBA Finals and 25 NBA All Star Games throughout his historic career. Now, he gets a Larry O’Brien trophy of his own to display in his residence.
