TSN talks basketball in the afternoon, because it is a feed from ESPN radio for most of it. It's good, but it's not comparable to the FAN in that respect - in that they are not making a conscious choice of programming specifically around basketball talk, but rather allowing the programmers at ESPN to do so while paying for their feed.
Well TSN knows that most Canadian "sports guys" don't know that much about sports outside of hockey, ala the Fan knuckleheads. And ultimately i could care less about where or why there's more basketball talk on TSN.....point is there is which is all i've wanted, balance.
