Finals Watch: Conan hoops it up

ATLANTA (AP) — Conan O'Brien wrapped up a four-day taping in Atlanta of his show on Thursday.

The 6-foot-4 O'Brien has never played organized basketball but is a big-time sports fan — his favorite teams include the Boston Celtics and Red Sox.

In tribute to Atlanta hosting college basketball's Final Four this weekend, O'Brien's guests Thursday night on his show — "CONAN" — that airs on TBS will include NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, college basketball announcer Dick Vitale and music artists Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
