“Yes!”

Legendary New York Knicks sportscaster Marv Albert just picked up a penthouse condo at 5 Franklin Place in Tribeca for north of $10 million, property records show.

The Basketball Hall of Fame member scored the 4,410-square-foot Penthouse A at Elad Group’s building for $10.3 million, records filed Tuesday show.

The four bedroom, 4.5-bath apartment has 3,751 square feet inside and 659 square feet of outdoor space, according to the listing with Douglas Elliman TRData LogoTINY.

The 53-unit, ODA New York-designed building sold out last year, according to its website.

The five-time Emmy Award winner, who recently extended his contract for an 18th season as a play-by-play commentator for TNT, sold the Upper West Side home he shared with his wife Heather in 2014 for $13 million.

A retail analyst who bought a $1.39 million apartment in the building recently sued Douglas Elliman, claiming she was promised skyline views but instead got a vista of a brick wall.
