it would help but they wont be able to broadcast game there. they can show special and post games on the knicks but not live games.
im from ny...i live in maryland now and work in ny three daya a week. we have the YES network.. i see all the stuff except the game... i think its a rights issue with the league passes or something like that. when the yankees game comes on .. im watching yankee classic.. bother the hell out of me... but we would get more west coast exposure
