Default NBA Finals on NBC? petition?

Guys, do you think if it's possible to start a petition to get the NBA back to NBC? I can't stand ABC (except for Hubie Brown, he is a fine analyst) anymore ; it has gotten worse since they have added those singing cheeleaders

TNT is nice for regular season and other playoffs games.

But for the Finals, I want NBC ; every time I watch old Finals games, I cry.

Bring Marv Albert and Bob Costas back!!!!!

You'll probally have to wait about 12 years to see NBA on NBC again.

The pussycat dolls singing the opening song is great, I mean there great and are fine as hell. But the song is horrible. Also we should definetly go back to NBC, I used to love watching games on NBC, it was even better than TNT.

If they don't go back to NBC, i'd like to see them on FOX. I enjoy all of their broadcasts.

Absolutely.

But do I think that the petition is going to break a contract worth hundreds of millions of dollars between two gigantic companies? No.

Well we can at least get 200 hundred signatures strong. I n that case, they'll have to listen to us. That and the fact NBA operates around what ISH members have to say.
