Well in our only TNT game we lost by like 100 to the Celtics.
I don't really care; I just want Chandler and Gallinari to progress and get as much experience as possible...along with Lee who I'm seeing to be underrated now.
Nate is replaceable and everyone else can go.
Rubio/Chandler/Gallinari/Lee is the future...we just need a monster shot blocker who can run the floor(SHAWN JAMES)
^^ agreed man i see Chandler becoming a beast he just needs to play and D'Antoni is the perfect coach for Chandler now its just a matter of when
Yeah agreed. I can give two ****s about being on national television or not. NBA is pretty stupid in their booking of nationally telvised games anyway. its a joke that stink teams like memphis, milwakee get atleast one game but a big city team like the Knicks can't even get 1. Its also rediculous how they showing 25 games from cleveland, phoenix , dallas, etc. I mean I can understandthe Lakers and Celts getting a few extra game televised sense they were finals participants last year but anfter that the spread of games should be distributed evenly.
honestly who gives a shyt, no one respects NY teams, just look at ESPN towards the Yankees they always talk good about Boston and bad about the Yanks, its like most national broadcasts have a jealousy towards the Big Apple. As long as it's on MSG im good, as for the out of state people idk
As long as I still get to hear Clyde, all is good.
First of all, this thread is dumb, I live in NY and don't care if they broadcast any games, I have MSG, they will all be broadcast. As far as national attention, If they do good they will get more attention, if not then they didn't deserve to be on TV anyway.
Does anyone think the knicks deserve to be on national TV after last season? Or should they remain NY's private little shame.
Well it sucks for the rest of us Knicks fans that live outside New York. That means I need to start saving up the $200 bucks for the NBA league pass to see any Knicks games this year besides the occasional NBA network games which I get. Long gone are the days of every Tuesday on TNT with Hubie calling the games and us leading off the Sunday doubleheader against other Eastern conference powers. Now a guess the Knicks are New York's "dirty little secret." Its a sad day in Knickdome really because to have national fans you need to have nationwide broadcasts. The Cubs haven't won a World Series in over hundred years, but have fans everywhere because the games are on wherever WGN is availible. Guess I better start saving up for the league pass...
A major market team with a storied franchise not being on national televison is a big deal. Teams fight for national attention and do anythign they can to get coverage since it boost the brand. Bossting the brand to a national audience increases relevancy which equates to better revenue streams in endorsements, merchandise, ticket sales, ect.
Its why GMs do everythign they can just to host an All-Star game, so that they can be get major market attention.
This is real basic stuff.
You should know this as an NBA fan. Shame on you
