I noticed this to. TNT does have two games a week but they only show them on Thursday. I remember last year seeing atleast 2 days of basketball a week on TNT. I think last year there was some games televised on TBS though.

We'll see after football season. I just noticed that there aren't too many. Maybe they are forcing us to buy that league pass?

Yes i remember last year (or the year before) TBS would have games some tuesdays and TNT would have some on thursday. What i hate recently is that it seems like it is always the detroit pistons. There are a lot of cavs games as well, but i dont mind watching lebron. But the pistons!! i dont know, maybe it is just me and they have not been on that much...

Hey, you've got to have NBA league pass these days if you want to really follow the league.

I just ordered NBA league pass from those blood sucking leaches known as cablevision, and i was psyched to watch a little of carmelo vs. lebron last night.

Then I find out that that game is on NBA TV, which does not come with the $200 I plunked down for NBA League pass, and can not be ordered seperately, but can be ordered for an "upgrade" of 25 more channels and $25 more dollars per month, which would push my cable bill to nearly $100 a month.

What a joy those folks at Cablevison are. It makes me take some joy in the fact that the Knicks stink.

One word: Satellite. Dish Network offers NBA league pass for $179 or 3x $59.67, and NBA TV is included with it.

Yeah, when I get my own place in a few months I will never, ever, ever give anther dollar to cablevision. I will be a DirecTv subscriber immediately.

Ooh! I have! B/c I only get to see like one Mavs game every 2 weeks. Hope it gets better after football season, but it seems like there are a LOT more college games this year. Often, there are college games--nonregional games--on all 3 sports channels at once w/no NBA or NHL coverage at all. I cannot WAIT until I can get NBATV & CenterIce.

Hey Hitman, if it's sports you want, namely basketball, Dish network is better because for only 6 more dollars you can get all the fox sports net channels and NBA TV included. Of course NBA league pass is the same thing only no blacked out NBA games i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
