No More Local TV Coverage in NBA
With a new TV deal the NBA is no longer allowing local broadcasts for second round games. Both ESPN and TNT have exclusive deals to carry the conference semifinals with no local competition. This is good for their ratings because they will get all the local fans, but bad for everyone who likes the biased announcing only local play by play men can give you.
The second round match-ups are now set, and all NBA games will be in HD from here on out. Hopefully there will be a series that is half as good as the Bulls Celtics in round 1, but don’t count on it.
