I sure hope that this year we won't have to watch almost half of the games Cleveland plays. I'm a fan of LeBron and all, but I wish they would give more teams a chance.

Last year, they hardly showed Chris Pauls Hornets...which is really awful considering how good that team is and how great it is to watch CP3 run that team. Hopefully they'll show more different teams on national TV this year.

CP3 and company will definitely be on television more next season.

^ Yeah they will but I think what JayW is trying to say is that the league should adjust its nationally televised games during the regular season so that the fans can watch the teams that are trully worth watching each season.

ESPN, TNT, and ABC are obsessed with the Cavs and LeBron, as long as he is in the league we will have to put up with the Cavs on national TV like once a week. I mean they are on TNT 3 times in one month, that is ridiculous.

:laugh2: With the whole media world all over Lebron's nuts, I doubt they'll give him less tv time, no matter how much more interesting it is to watch other teams.

i agree minus they are obsessed with the Cavs. It is just Lebron. If he moves to a new team then so will those stations games

The Hornets weren't on TV very much last season for many reasons. They were still settling into their own fan base. They aren't going to put a team on Nat'l TV if they aren't even filling 3/4 of the arena.

Also, they were coming off of an underachieving season, filled with various injuries.

They will surely be on TV often this season with their exciting up-tempo pace. But if injuries strike again (there top 4 player have had some serious ones over the past few years) then they could end up being more similar to the '06-07 squad.

I hope LeBron leaves the Cavs soon as I am sick of watching them play. I find them one of the most boring teams to watch in the NBA.

well it doesnt matter for me, I'm in england and i have to watch over the internet.

It is so much easier to find a link for a game on lp than it is when they are on national tv, also there are the archives
