that these 3 minute ad blocks are killer for the flow of the game? I mean, just sitting here watching it, it's hard because momentum just seems to stop. I can't imagine what it's like for the players.

Its annoying, a **** load of free timeouts. Three min break every what? 5 min of game play?

I wish ads would only happen during actual timeouts and at the end of each quarter, but I know that won't happen.

The TV timeouts and ref timeouts should be gotten rid of. Each team already has 7-8 timeouts a game each which they use, 10 minutes or so between quarters, 20-30 min halftime, etc.

That's more then enough time for commercials...

This is why I never watch nba games live at my house...I'll usually pause the game at the beginning and wait an hr and start watching it so I can speed thru commercials

Between the timeouts and bull **** loose ball fouls called it gets hard to watch with a steady flow of drama. Stern needs to be kicked in the ***!

I watch the game on a 30 - 40 min delay.....breeze right through till the fourth quarter.

I really should do the same. Honestly a 3 minute break every 5 minutes is too much. I make it a habit to not watch commercials, but with this current setup, it's like I never actually sit down.

Yeah who wants a league to get advertising revenue and money in TV contracts....those disrespectful bastards trying to make more money for the league so they can get more revenue and try and grow its product. From a business standpoint that makes no sense.

The worst. Even at the game it felt like an eternity. So annoying!

I don't think anyone is proposing to get rid of the ads and charge people $1000/ticket. It's just the sheer number of ads that's the problem. There are so many it interrupts the flow of the play.

Besides, ask yourself how premier league soccer does it. 90 straight minutes of play and the only commercials you'll see are at the half. But European soccer players are paid every bit as much, and the leagues just as profitable?

Something is missing here. There has to be a better way.

It gives me time to go potty and get a drank. It's pretty convenient sometimes.
