Question National TV

I know this isn't a big deal but now that we are actually a serious contending team with Jermaine O Neal do you think we will get more national TV coverage? I just always thought that we were severely lacking in the national TV coverage area.

Nah. One All-Star coming to the team won't make that much of a difference in terms of TV coverage. It would be nice though

If they win enough, then they'll get some coverage, but nothing huge like Cleveland. They'll get some games against the sexier teams.

Isn't the national TV schedule released prior to the season?

Or is it like the NFL where they leave some nights up for grabs?

Either way...maybe a couple against Boston or Cleveland...I wouldn't bet on many though.

I believe the TNT sched is pretty much set, with there only being a few optional games available on Thursday nights. But ABC doesn't start broadcasting on weekends regularly until January, and has much to choose from on the weekends.

We really dont have the "big name" superstars to attract national TV audiences or a Vinsanity type superhuman athlete to dazzle fans in2 wanting to see a non american team, to put it simply, i see no chance of real national TV coverage in the next couple years

The NBA should change their usual 3 game Thursdays to 4 or 5 games just incase some of the scheduled TNT games have horrible teams as we go into the new year then they can switch up the games and not have to put us through the Miami/Cleveland games of last year.

And I think we'll get a game or two, possibly vs Lebron or vs the Celts or Magic. Besides DET/BOS/CLE/ORL we're probably next in line, and in the east they cant just show those 4 teams alone. Stern will get us a TNT game, and we'll get at least 3 ESPN games this year

Its a couple weeks after the NBA sched comes out I believe, and the sched usually comes out early august, then the TV stations figure out how theyre gonna divide the games and such.

Expect the Canadian TV sched to be announced late AUG early SEPT if I remember right

So apparently the answer is 2. And one is on ESPN2. I'm too lazy to check which games they are...at least one of them is probably against Boston or Cleveland though.

Cleveland has 25 nationally televised games.

Lebron > Good basketball...big surprise.

Heres a breakdown, it doesn't have the actual games though.
