Correct. And I know one person with NBA TV, I'd have better luck if the games were on showtime.

I'm a bit surprised the Celtics are at #1.
Me too, I don't quite get that. No way their ratings eclipse what they could get playing the Lakers or Heat. Or maybe I'm wrong? But I doubt it in this case.

Yeah, I think the Bulls get more NBA TV love. Like if you take that out, LA and Miami have 25 games on ABC, TNT and ESPN with Boston at 25 as well.

Edit: Boston had 33 games with 4 stations not 32 as previoulsy listed.

If they are still having a Tuesday Fan night on Nba TV or whatever its called where fans get to vote who plays then the Heat and Lakers will def have more nat tv games because if those two play on tues one of them will win it pretty much every time...

I think it is worth it in March once games are more important and you are fighting for playoff seeding and HCA.

It depends on if they have a lot of games on Tuesday. Example on Tue Nov 23rd I'm sure Bulls @ Lakers will be voted as the game to see on Fan Night.

You and I both know that's a joke.

Not to sound like too much of a homer, but I've very rarely heard that the Magic aren't a fun team to watch. I always thought we played a fun style of basketball. Any particular reason?

Yeah, you'd expect the Lakers to be 1 or 2 at least but I can understand why they have Chicago up there. They've made some great moves and gives the fans something new to look at instead of watching the same teams over and over again. I think the league and myself included just have high expectations this year for the Bulls.

Super.

it makes sense that the celtics are #1 because they play all of those elite teams 4 times in the east. they are the defending ec champs so they should have 12 national games against the heat magic and bulls right there. then the ones against the lakers etc.

I thought the Rockets would make the list. Never count the Rockets out; injuries happen to every team, and the Rockets are an underdog and can be very dangerous when healthy.

and the average person is going to know players other than Amare on the Knicks? my guess is more people know Aaron Brooks than the #2 option on NYK.

how many are the cavs on now considering no lebron? that has to suck...
