TNT is far and away the worst simply due to the way they handle back to back games. You always miss part of the night game. I remember a few years ago I was waiting for a Suns/Spurs game and the first game went to OT so we missed the entire first half.
ESPN is much better so I'll go with them.

I grew up on the NBA on NBC. So that's my vote...

TNT was great, until Shaq happened.

NBA on NBC beats all.

NBA on ABC is the worst thing ever.

Maybe its because this is when I fell in love with the game. That theme still gives me a boner.

Is there a solution TNT could come up with for that problem?

I guess if they had a 2nd tnt channel, it would work. Otherwise, not much you can do. One group of fans is gonna get screwed either way.

They used TBS to show the other game during the college ball tournament last year.. I guess nba's deal doesnt allow them to

NBA on NBC in the 90's will always stick with me.

Why?
Those were the Jordan days. The Marv Albert days with his one word yelling on great plays. NBA Jam on Sega Genesis used the theme song. The 90's will always remain the golden years for my generation (I'm 27 by the way).

I would always prefer to watch the game listening to Frazier.

But the NBA on NBC was awesome, and had the best theme music ever.

NBC 90's theme brings back so much memories. I grew up in this era so I'm biased here.

I actually feel sad for youngns who didn't get to have the NBA on NBC experience. I think not only the theme, but the fact that it happened to coincide with the peak of Jordan's career (6-titles) helped garnered such a huge following.

Loved NBA on NBC back in the day. Today I'd go with TNT first, ESPN second and ABC third.
