NBA fines Cavs, Rockets, Wolves for leaking schedule info
August 3, 2009 ∑
The 2009-10 regular season NBA schedule comes out Tuesday, but itís already having an impact on a few teams. The AP reports:

The NBA has fined three teams an undisclosed amount for leaking details of their schedules before the league released them. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets and Minnesota Timberwolves were penalized, an official with knowledge of the decisions told The Associated Press on Monday.

It would be interesting to find out how the league knew exactly which teams revealed the info.

The season will begin October 27 with four games, two of which -- Boston at Cleveland, Houston at Portland -- will make up a TNT double-header. The rest of the league will kick off October 28.

For the second straight year, the league will feature five games during its major Christmas Day showcase. ESPN will broadcast Heat-Knicks (what?), Clippers-Suns (ummm...) and Nuggets-Blazers. ABC will give us Celtics-Magic and Cavaliers-Lakers. Three great games, and two ... um, two other games.

The regular season will end April 14, with 28 of the 30 teams in action. Later today, FanHouse will break down which teams will get the most national TV action. I assure you that the Lakers will be at the top of the list.

We wouldn't want the schedule being leaked early. Good grief.
