We have missed maybe 6 or 7 baskets because the idiots at TNT cut away from live action.

Why do they always have to show on camera the player who just made a basket. They always show a closeup of the player who just made a basket. What do they think we don't know who just scored?

The TNT coverage has been pretty awful throughout the weekend IMO. :mad:

I ***** about that all the time. Thats one of the main reasons I prefer watching the games on league pass. I cant stand watching TNT games when Allen Iversons mom is in the audience because it seems to me they spend more time on her than on the game.


P.S. My wife says that my son is going to think that one of the announcers is called show the game because I am always yelling show the game idiot when I am watching a TNT/TBS/ESPN/ABC game.

And then in the 4th quarter, we totally miss Shaq's coast to coast dunk because they have some stupid graphic covering the whole screen about the leading vote getters

Watched the HD feed of the game. Totally different broadcast, with the only hoop missed (that I recall) being JO's dunk(?) after Shaq's dunk.

No Craig Sager or any other sideline/celeb interviews. No complaints about missing those......

Craig Sager should be fined for that interview of Half-player, half-imposter.

That was total crap.

TNT should be ashamed.

How about this....the MTV/Disney produced half-time shows should be dropped and the networks go back to actually reporting on the game and the league at halftime??? Should be done in the NFL too. The shows are so canned and faked they aren't entertaining anyway. If I wanted and extravaganza I would go to DisneyWOrld and watch them parade down Main Street. Or fly into NY and watch a Broadway musical.

I could not agree more, but it is too late, things are too far along.

I was trying to think back to when it all started, I think the Orange Bowl of the mid 80's started with the halftime shows. Slowly but surely it has gotten worse.

Now the NBA Finals have halftime entertainment, that started in 2001

Agreed - the HD feed was great - I hope they show the playoffs in HD w/different broadcasters. The guys on HD seemed to be more game centered while the group on the regular coverage were more interested in who was in the crowd than the players. I thought Rex Chapman was good - it took me a while to figure out who he was, but his insight into what it was like to play with Kidd during his early years and how he has improved was interesting.
