I don't know how many of you out of towners participated in voting for fan night on NBA TV this year, but some of you may have noticed that after the Lakers started winning every week that they were on the ballot they took them off so no one could vote for them anymore. Someone (not me) sent them a a message and here is the official reason why you can't vote for them anymore:

"Dear NBA Fan,

Thank you for participating in NBA TV Fan Night voting this season.

All NBA national television carriers, including NBA TV, can televise the games of each team a maximum of nine times throughout the regular season. Once a team reaches the cap on NBA TV, they are no longer eligible for voting on NBA TV’s Fan Night.

Thank you for your support of the NBA.

Sincerely,

NBA Fan Relations"


It sucks, but it's understandable. Thank god I live in LA!!!

Sucks for those who want to watch the Lakers play outside of LA. I don't have NBA TV anyway so it doesn't really affect me.

What a bull**** rule. You know they made that **** up on the fly.
"If you could stop all the players that get publicized and all the players that the NBA likes and all the players, you know, the players that win the MVP's, you know, for their offense. And some of them, you know, play pretty good defense too. But some of them, you know, they like "this guy he can shoot, he can score, he can dunk." and I want to be the one to stop all those guys, you know, and just kinda spoil the whole party." - Ron Artest

Thank God. Imagine if they never played on fan night maybe they could have reached 70.

You conspiracy theorists probably think the Kings should have won the 2002 championship.

Q:

Does anyone have a good e-mail address for NBA TV?


I really, really, want them to show Game 6 of the 1991 WCF. I have never seen this game televised since it was played 18 years ago.

Thanks,

Am I the only one that noticed there were only eight games right there?

I thought the max was nine?
