    I wonder if/when they'll start doing that for ABC games. On March 9th, for example, do they bump Thunder - Lakers for Blazers - Rockets. May depend on whether Kobe's playing.

    I doubt the Thunder get bumped.

    Is this an early sign that the Silver era won't have such disgusting big market bias at the expense of quality like the Stern era did?

    I would rather watch Suns Rockets than Lakers Nets whats the big deal here? Seems like the logical move to me.

    Thunder might just be the second biggest TV draw in the NBA right now behind the Heat.

    Nope, ESPN and the NBA just believe the Rockets vs Suns will get higher ratings than the Lakers vs Nets right now. Really simple as that.

    That will be a better game. Remember when ESPN bumped the Pacers-Thunder game in April last year to show Miami-Charlotte when LBJ and Wade didn't even play
    "We want Miami"

    They did it because of the Heat's long winning streak, but then they couldn't change it back after the Heat streak was ended prior to that game. They had to stick with the heat vs Bobcats

    And it was the right choice when they were on that winning streak. When the Heat lost, they should have changed it back.
