There are times the written word is inadequate. This post really needs to start with that Law & Order “doing doing” sound. You know, this one. Yea. Just pretend that this first paragraph was only that noise.

Finally Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, Richard Belzer and Ice-T in the same place. I know we’ve all been waiting for that.

Anthony and Bosh will appear in cameos as themselves in a basketball-themed episode of NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU” this season, according to TVGuide.com (via CBS’ Eye on Basketball).

Insert your own jokes about Mariska Hargitay being needed to search for LeBron James’ game once the fourth quarter starts, that’s not what the episode is about.

Anthony and fellow NBA star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat will each make cameo appearances in the opening scene and the episode’s climax. The episode, titled “Personal Fouls,” focuses on a youth basketball coach (The Wonder Years’Dan Lauria) who is suspected of being a sexual predator.

The episode is slated to air Sept. 28, right about when both men are set to take the court during training camp. Yea, right. Let’s just hope they are on the court before this episode ends up in summer repeats.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the presence of more than one pro athlete in a cameo role mean the show has Jumped The Shark?
