Turner Sports on Tuesday agreed to a long-term contract extension with play-by-play broadcaster Marv Albert, who will continue to lend his iconic voice to the NBA on TNT.

Albert, who has announced games for 18 years on TNT, will continue to work the network's signature NBA events including regular season games, NBA All-Star coverage and the NBA Playoffs.

This week's NBA All-Star Game in Toronto will mark his 21st year working the event.

"Marv has been the voice of the NBA for generations of sports fans and I can't recall a play-by-play announcer as closely identifiable with their respective league on a national level as he is," president of Turner, David Levy, said.

Albert has won five national Sports Emmy Awards and was inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2015.
