Sorry every time I tried to reply to you PM, it wouldn't go through.

Yes I do watch the NBA. My hometown team the Milwaukee Bucks has a good history in the league and are getting better. The reason there were so many breaks is that nationally televised games like that one are usually shown on a network (like TNT or ABC) and are required by sponsors to take commercial breaks every 15min or so. I know, there are a lot of side events like the introductions and the cheerleaders, but it's still very fast paced. Oddly, the NFL has twice as many breaks and a 60min game takes up an entire 3 hour TV block. Too bad you have to watch the NBA at 3am, this should be a good season!

Cheers

Yes but those two messages did came through

Nordic Canal+ never have chance to show any "important" matches from NBA as the two American channels (TNT and ESPN?) have the rights to choose their matches first. So obviously they always pick LA Lakers, Bulls or Miami Heat. So our Canal+ can choose their match as third in the queue, so last time it was Pistons v Oklahoma.

And hooray for Earl Boykins!!! You don't have to be 2 meters tall to compete in NBA.

Hahaha yes Earl Boykins is quite the player. The two American channels likely are TNT and ESPN since ABC has the biggest matches and it's a non-cable channel. Look out for my Bucks as they'll be on national TV!

In one hour there would be Oklahoma City Thunders vs Utah Jazz, but I guess I'm already too tired to watch that one.

Next weekend they have Orlando Magic  vs New Jersey (!!),  Phoenix Suns Grizzlies vs Memphis and Miami Heat vs New Jersey (!!!)

I'll look into it if they show Bucks play!
