    We will get nationally televised in the playoffs. That is what matters this season. How we do then will determine whether we deserve more next year.

    The Pistons series in 04 did nothing to help our national marketability. It was a brutal defensive struggle that turned the casual fan off to the NBA. But made Buck go gaga.
    Didn't that series get high ratings?
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    It was below average, but still not bad.

    4-6 is a safe bet. We should get more respect, we are getting more from anylists this year, I think it's our turn to pick up a couple nationally televised games.. Though it's still Indiana with no superstars, so your only gonna have so many in this league.

    How many nat'l games did Philly get this season? I think our number next year is going to be similar if we do not clear the first round. If we do go on a nice run and make the 2nd round opponent work... Maybe we get on as many times as Memphis did this year.

    At any rate, I just don't see us being on more than a handful of times because we don't have that name on the roster that is "Must see TV"

    Yeah, I was thinking that same thing. There's a difference between a low-scoring game and a defensive battle.
    I think the perimeter shooting was bad, but only because neither team could get a shot off in the paint. The interior defense on both sides were excellent.

    And for what I remember the transition defenses were stellar as well.

    I am trying to locate a listing of how many times each team was on TNT, ESPN and ABC.

    Note this was to have been the schedule if a full season took place. Click on the link to see a complete list of the schedule. Here is the breakdown by team .

    Blazers and Warriors were scheduled for too many. The Grizzlies should have been a lot more.

    Lakers - 25
    Heat - 25
    Celtics - 24
    Bulls - 24
    Mavs - 23
    Knicks - 22
    Thunder - 19

    Magic - 14
    Blazers - 14
    Spurs - 14
    Nuggets - 14
    Clippers - 13

    Warriors - 10
    Suns - 10
    Hawks - 8

    Grizzlies - 5
    Sixers - 5
    Jazz - 4

    Hornets - 2
    Rockets - 2

    Raptors - 1
    Wizards - 1
    Cavs - 1
    Bucks - 1
    Pistons - 1
    Pacers - 1
    Kings - 1
    T-Wolves - 1

    Nets - 0
    Bobcats - 0





    http://www.sportsmediawatch.com/2011...l-tv-schedule/

    The Lakers and Heat lead the way in national TV appearances, with 25 each. The Celtics (24), Bulls (23), Mavericks (23), Knicks (22) and Thunder (19) follow.

    Twenty-eight of the NBA’s thirty teams are scheduled to make a national TV appearance this season, including the likes of the Kings, Bucks, Timberwolves, Wizards, and even the Pistons.

    The only teams left off the national TV slate were the Nets and Bobcats

    I'll stick to 0 with my caveat about ESPN2 being barely a step above NBATV.

    We might make it onto ESPN 8 - The Ocho!
    Where does everyone else side on this?

    To me ESPN2 is almost the same difference as ESPN. To him, it's on NBATV level.

    Which do you agree with?

    I enjoy it. I liked the Butler and UConn game last year. Even though ESPN was telling me not to.
    Other than some not-so-forced missed layups/shots, I agree.

    The reason for me is that when I travel I can find ESPN on the hotel TV but very often do not find ESPN2.

    Surprise surprise the Grizz and Sixers were to have the same number of appearances.

    ESPN2 only has had 1 game all season and they were scheduled to have no games if the full season had been played. So why does it matter

    In the playoffs ESPN2 will have some games when they already have two on ESPN

    But to answer your question ESPN2 is a lot closer to ESPN than NBATV. but is is still not quite ESPN. if ESPN is 100 and NBTV is 10. ESPN2 is about a 90
