It was $140 before the season started, so most likely a little lower now since we are a quarter into the season. I had the 15% discount and I chose the monthly payment method, so I pay about $11.89/month for 10 months. I think that's worth it. It includes All-Star weekend and Playoffs as well. As for the blackouts, I can watch any game, there's a way around it. I won't post it on here, but if you want to know, PM me.

Anyways, if you are looking to purchase it, let me know first. I can give a couple tips so you can get the $140 package for $100 (again, these are pre-season prices), or you can get the premium package for $140. Premium package allows you to watch NBA TV, historic games, and let's you choose between home/away announcers. For me, that last one is big...I can't stand Cavs/Celtics/Clippers announcers and I almost never have to listen to the (only time is when they are playing each other). Plus, the total monthly payments are only a difference of about $2, so totally worth it for me. And if you have a smartphone/tablet, the app is decent. No way around the blackouts on League Pass Mobile though, as far as I know, however, to be fair, I haven't spent too much time looking for a way.

Thanks for the info Ill probably start looking into it next season. Hate theres no court surfing anymore the basketball jones. And that all Raptors games are basically on TSN2 or SN1 which cost extra $$. If you go to both TSN or SN its mostly hockey/something which isnt basketball

Ditto. Thanks for that info.

To tell you the truth... if I could watch bball and tennis (grand slams) on my computer I'd have no use for TV at all. I'll have to look into this.

I made a 1 time 40 dollar payment for free to air, i have every channel on the planet. So much better than anything anyone else can suggest. Just stream it through any device on to your TV.

Wow. Apparently D12 is taking his match up with Drummond pretty seriously....

25 & 14 so far compared to Drummond's 5 & 4 (he's been in foul trouble).

One time, I posted a news article on the Bobcats FB page, about some lady that found bobcats in her backyard. To my surprise, a few Bobcats fans got mad at me.

No way around the blackouts on League Pass Mobile though, as far as I know, however, to be fair, I haven't spent too much time looking for a way.
For anyone that is interested, there is an alternative to League Pass. The legality of it all is a little iffy but I feel the service is vastly superior to League Pass. The site is ballstreams.com and it is exactly the same service as hockeystreams.com if you're familiar with that. This season is the first time they've done it so there is a couple snags. Public registration is closed currently because of the massive amount of people that want to use it, but you can sign up for an invite and hopefully email you somewhat quickly so you can get signed up.

Secondly, you don't always get a choice between home and away streams on busy nights in the NBA. Mainly Fridays and Saturdays. If it is really busy then they will default to the home stream or TNT/NBATV if it's on there. But if you're just worried about Raptor games then you don't need to worry. Even if there is only one stream available, it's always the Raps stream. So you'll never miss out on Matt and Jack, but on the flip side you may get stuck with Matt and Leo lol. It's my understanding that they are working on getting more encoders so they can offer more stream options but that's a work in progress.

Lastly, you get everything League Pass offers and it looks just as good, if not better than League Pass. Plus you don't need to worry about blackouts. The service can be streamed from multiple devices and it will offer the NBA draft and NCAA Final Four games. I am in no way affiliated with them, I just really love their service don't want to put up with the crazy price and lackluster service from League Pass, then I highly recommend ballstreams. Did I mention it was only $90 a year?

Really like the logo. It could have been better, but overall it looks pretty good. I can't wait to see what their jerseys look like. I still have my Glen Rice jersey from the 90's

Almost anything would be better than their 90's jerseys.

You clearly didn't like the 90s.

Those teal jerseys were beautiful, along with the dino jerseys which you hate for some reason.
