NBC yesterday tapped Bob Costas as its lead play-by-play announcer on NBA telecasts, succeeding Marv Albert, who was fired after his conviction last month on charges that he assaulted a woman with whom he had had a long affair.Costas, the prime-time anchor of NBC's Olympic coverage, as ** well as its lead voice on baseball telecasts, will be joined by former Detroit Pistons great Isiah Thomas, who last week resigned as part-owner and general manager of the Toronto Raptors.When NBC received the rights to NBA telecasts in 1990, the network's plan was for Costas to be the lead announcer with Albert serving as the No. 2, but Costas asked instead to work as the studio host, a role he remained in until earlier this year, when he took six months off.Hannah Storm, who filled in for Costas during his sabbatical, will continue as the studio host.

Hannah Storm is raising a storm in her effort to shift from Turner Broadcasting to NBC Sports for a $200,000 salary, almost three times her current income. More money and more exposure make the decision easy for Storm, but Turner has read the fine print in her contract and apparently is attempting to match the offer.Storm's most prominent role during three years at Turner was co-anchor on TBS for the Goodwill Games in Seattle in 1990. She did not emerge as an in-house favorite.Storm does project as a lively, smiling presence on camera and supposedly can play 20 questions with anyone.

As the curtain is raised tonight on the biggest television show of the year, the Summer Olympics (Channel 11, 8 p.m.) and its opening ceremonies, the natural tendency over the next 16 days will be to focus on the words of announcers like Bob Costas, Dick Enberg, Greg Gumbel and the rest of NBC's announcing crew.However, it's more than likely that what will distinguish these centennial Games from any other Olympics or from any other television show are the pictures and the extraordinary efforts of NBC's producers, camera operators and technicians.

NBC shuffled its roster just before opening the network's National Basketball Association season (Los Angeles Lakers-San Antonio Spurs, tomorrow, 3 p.m., channels 2 and 4), but, given the caliber of the announcers doing the shuffling, don't think that means NBC made a misstep.Bob Costas, originally set to be one of the network's play-by-play men along with Marv Albert, instead will be host of the pre-game program "NBA Showtime," joining former Los Angeles Lakers coach Pat Riley. Taking Costas' play-by-play spot will be Dick Enberg.

The writers strike claimed a major casualty yesterday as the Democratic National Committee canceled a presidential debate planned for Los Angeles Dec. 10. CBS was scheduled to hold the debate with anchorwoman Katie Couric as moderator. But leading candidates had said they would not cross a writers' picket line, and yesterday 500 CBS writers who had authorized a strike vote seemed on the verge of announcing a walkout for Dec. 10. "The possibility of picket lines set up by the Writers Guild of America and the unwillingness of many candidates to cross them made it necessary to allow the candidates to make other plans," CBS News said in a statement issued late yesterday.

Let's see if we have this straight: Albert Belle delivers a profane and menacing tirade at NBC's Hannah Storm before Game 3 of last season's World Series, declines counseling and now gets to negotiate with baseball officials over the terms of a fine or suspension.Yep, baseball is back.Acting poobah Bud Selig's handling of this matter is Exhibit No. 1 for the prosecution in the case of why baseball desperately needs a commissioner with some semblance of a spine.Ignoring the sizable conflict-of-interest issue over whether the owner of one club can sit in judgment of a player from another club in the same division, Selig's deafening silence in the four months since Belle harangued Storm sends the signal that baseball players not only don't have to cooperate with the media, but also can intimidate them without fear of retribution.

Let the viewer beware: Not everything you'll see during the Olympics will be live.That seems obvious with the sheer volume of activity and a tight NBC telecast schedule, but how will you know what's live and what's taped?You probably won't, not if yesterday's first day of competition is an early indicator. The network did a fair amount of, shall we say, fudging, about what was happening as you watched, and what had already taken place.Swimming and gymnastics commentators only casually, and we suspect, unintentionally, let a few time references slip in, but save for a few things on the schedule, like the swimming finals, most of what aired was on tape.
