If you have NBATV they have wall-to-wall coverage this whole weekend.

Coverage of the practices, tons of interviews with players, coaches and other media types.

I probably watch NBATV this weekend more than TNT.

1:00 they have coverage of the practices and intrerviews

I was sitting there watching the interview of Lebron and Carmello before the rookie game and I thought to myself I bet UB is watching this too. :laugh:

We need a little junkie icon.

Pretty cool watching practice some. Just tuned in players all taking half court shots, Artest first one to make. Kind of sucks not being able to hear what they are saying though.

Kind of interesting watching this still. Seems like all the players off chatting with each other and standing around, while Artest is on the opposite side of the court practicing by himself playing with the crowd. He doesn't seem to be interacting with the other players much.

I am grabbing what I can, which is all that is broadcasted by superpass, worth the money for a change :D

Loved to see the practise, still watching, but I was amazed at how much the camera firstly focussed on JO before anything else.

During the press-interview session while watching T Duncan being interviewed a whole league of girls/women went banana's and started screaming "jermaine!" and that turned into a chant for JO JO JO. weird to realize that LA is the first place to chant his name, CF still being "silent" :D

Ron was great with the audience and the practise, he did interact some, but he prefered to get some practise in as well and used the audience to pass him the ball.

All in all, fun to watch and stunning amounts of people there :)

Still wish I could see it though, I'd love to watch it. :(

I've been watching NBATV today, the east just got done practicing. They were all shooting half court shots at the end. Ron made 2 and Redd made one, Ron's half court shot looks like a regular jump shot, the dude is strong. Ron was then throwing the ball to the crowd, they would throw it back and he would shoot a jumper. Ron was smiling, laughing and talking to everyone and having a good time, it was nice to see. They showed Ron talking to Micheal Rapaport (actor) about being the only player there from New York. JO signed a bunch of autographs, McGrady signed his shoes and through them to the crowd.

Last year you could hear every word the coaches said. Carlisle had a microphone on, but we could not hear a word. That was frustrating.

If the Pacers ever need a halfcourt shot we know who should shoot it.

The amazing thing is Ronnie shoots it with his normal form. Shows how strong he is.
