Is it just me or are any of you guys pissed at ABC showing the same damn teams playing every Sunday afternoon? Its always Phoenix, San Antonio, Celtics, or the Cavs. :mad:

I AM TIRED OF WATCHING PHOENIX ON ABC. Seriously, ABC sucks and they should start showing other teams as well. It ruins my Sunday afternoon watching the Suns over and over and over and over again...

I would love to see a couple of other teams on ABC.

Your thoughts?

i agree, but the NBA wants to showcase their best teams when they have a large national audience. This is because casual fans don't know who joe johnson or David West is. THey only know the proven stars like lebron, kobe and shaq.

Well, they make the schedules before the season starts, and predetermine who will play in these late season sunday afternoon games based on last year. It just so happens that the suns have some big names, and draw ratings and also happen to be playing other good teams. It's how it goes. Sunday afternoon sports have to have mass appeal, not just appeal to core NBA fans.

there are plenty of games during the rest of the week on espn, nbatv and tnt. ABC gets 1-2 games a week, why wouldn't they showcase the most popular teams on sunday afternoon?

Like superkegger said, its all about the ratings. Guys like Shaq, Amare, Kobe, Garnett etc are players people like like to watch. They draw ratings, the NBA isn't gonna put on the Thunder Vs Washington on ABC.

The only way the Wizards could be on ABC is if Gilbert gets his *** back on the court. He's the only big name to watch on that team.

Rockets games? I mean who doesn't know Yao Ming? There are a lot of Chinese people in the US who I am sure would watch him play on free tv.

Even the hated Utah Jazz should be on tv, only for their home games. They are winning, their owner just died they are rallying around him to get their coach a ring

Hawks are fun to watch, they actually run and gun
