ESPN of course. Always nationally televised, I'ma watch the majority on local channels anyways, so when it's on national TV I gotta watch what everyone else in the US is enjoying. And HD baby.

If its TNT im watching it there, I used to hate when the games were blacked out. ESPN's coverage is ok, Ill usually watch it over KCAL because it looks better. But back when it was Chick and Stu, all local, all the time.

i like the local feel to a laker game so i choose local, however the quality is horrible on kcal 9 especially during nationally televised games, it seems like TNT/ESPN gets first dibs on camera location selection, I like to turn to the nationally televised game when we are defying the odds

Local if possible. TNT announcers and BSPN announcers are boring as hell. Ever since KCAL and FSN went HD, it's been a no-brainer for me.

Really? I like the TNT announcers. I don't mind the ESPN announcers especially when it's Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy, and Mark Jackson along with Michelle Tafoya. However, lately it seems like when the Lakers play, we get Mike Tirico and Hubie Brown along with Lisa Salters. I don't know what happened to Bill Walton though.

Nor do I, his sarcasm is greatly missed, especially his classic lines like, throw it down!, worse pass in the history of western civilization, etc.

Does nobody have DirecTV up in this mutha*****. KCAL in HD is so clear man, but I do prefer ESPN, and TNT over KCAL & FSN West.

I miss living in SoCal and listening to Stu, and Chick in the day. Now I dont get any of the games unless they are on TNT, ESPN, or the other major networks.

The HD quality is better on those stations for sure, but the announcers dont know anything about the players on the Lakers, and constantly say things about players that they have no idea about.

So I choose to watch live internet feeds of KCAL or FSN with bad picture quality over ESPN on TV.
