    Default Are you watching MSG or ESPN tonight

    I watched ESPN when we played the Celtics but Jalen Rose and Mark Jackson piss me off. I actually switched to MSG in the 4th quarter because they were so annoying! Everytime The Knicks would do something awesome (Gallo's reverse Jam, STAT's dunk on that turkish kid) the ESPN announcers had like no reaction.

    ESPN because it's in HD and the NBA sports package is not.

    Do you have AT&T Uverse? I do and I have the HD channel package but MSG is the ONLY sports channel that doesn't provide HD on my service. It pisses me off!

    I'm not sure if it's true for others, but the crowd noise on ESPN was muffled compared to MSG--less exciting that way.

    As a canadian I have no choice but to watch it on ESPN. MSG is not available and i'm pretty sure even if i had league pass it would be ESPN coming through. I'm considering getting it when the ASG gets on the go, as they usually do a half-way price.

    Jrose was fairly pro-Amar'e and pro-knicks from what i could tell... i mean, he did pick amar'e as MVP thus far. Everyone else gripped on him about it tho. JVG is a pretty good commentator but marc jackson and the other guy they had court side were obviously pro-boston and really pissing me off.

    and LMFAO @ knickswillriseagain, it really felt like that when i was watching the other night.

    I wish I was watching MSG because Cylde is the BEST and ESPN announcers are god awful.

    But I'm stuck in Boston, so I'm forced to watch ESPN.

    Nope...I have Comcast. No HD channels for NBA package unless it's a game on the NBA channel and the broadcast is in HD.
