    Makes all the sense in the world. Still didn't expect it to happen though.

    There was one against the Knicks during the lockout season and the Pacers lost by double-digits if I remember correctly.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    How big of a buzzkill would this be though if seedings were set and both teams played their bench?

    What is our record on national TV so far.
    1) beat the Bulls at home in early November
    2) We lost at Miami
    3) Beat the Knicks in NY
    4) Beat the Rocks at home
    5) got beat badly by the T-Wolves

    There was another game we lost by a wide margin on ESPN. So we are 3-3 so far and two of our worst games of the season. And I missing a game or two?

    Sweet. You can tell there is a new commish in town. Stern goes out on the last Sunday of his career with the putrid Knicks vs. the putrid Lakers on ABC, which perfectly illustrated the big market bias that plagued the league for so long. Silver comes in and immediately we have a quality ABC game near the end of the season. Nice.

    It was downright criminal that the Pacers didn't have an ABC game this year. Glad the NBA has realized what a hideous mistake that was.

    The NBA has had a pathetic fetish with desperately wanting the Knicks to turn into a marquee franchise. It's just never happened. They haven't won the championship since 1973. They've never had a true transformative superstar in the modern television era (last 30 or so years). By transformative superstar, I'm talking about a Bird, Magic, Jordan, Lebron, Shaq, Kobe, etc. The Knicks just haven't had that sort of player since the league entered its modern television age. Ewing was obviously good and the team certainly had some entertaining moments in the 90's (often because of their opponents), but they were never a team whose merch was pimped anywhere outside of the tri-state area. No one has ever really cared about the Knicks outside of the apple. The league was so desperate for the Knicks to come back to relevance after the miserable 2000's that they've done nothing but shove them down our throats for the last two years. They want Melo to be a Lebron and for the team to be a monster, but it's just never going to happen.

    Suns game was on ESPN. I feel like we played the Clippers once on ESPN, but I could be totally wrong about that.

    it was long overdue for the league and media to have greater flexibility with televised games.
