Because TNT must air, as you mentioned, to a national audience; they must capture as much ratings as they can, so they only pick the teams that are either really good, or ones that capture inherently large viewing markets, such as the Knicks (who lately really suck, but get air time), Chicago, LA, etc.

The only thing that really pisses me off is that there always boardcasting Cavs games, AND I HATE EVERYONE ON THE CAVS EXPECT JAMES, And im pretty sure everyone else thinks the same.

They want ratings, thats why the Lakers play almost every week on TNT.

so people would rather see teams because they're "american", even if it's memphis or minnesota?

This is exactly why. Canada has the Raptors covered no need for another channel to show the same games.

Because TNT is a United States channel..obviously.


They don't air canadian teams because the ratings won't be great


Big cities- and good teams = a lot of airtime

wait, the nba does not do flex-scheduling yet, right? what a shame.

calderon is a beast when he is A) the field general and B) does not have anyone looking over his shoulder. and we all know the JO-Bosh combo is going to be a success.

america's loss. the raps are a great team to watch.

They dont put teams who either suck, no one likes, or are boring. You may have fans and do not suck but you guys are no exciting to watch. I never watch TNT basketball anyway I jus watch my team on CSN
