Exclamation Why Does ESPN show the NBA No Love?

Please tell me I'm not the only one who sees this? Top 10 plays last night, only one from the finals, and even during the regular season...They'll recap HALF the NBA games for about 70 seconds all together and then move on. Basketball and Baseball season are both equally long yet baseball gets 1,000,000 times the coverage...what's up with that? Whatever sport is still in season outshines the NBA, hockey, mlb, golf, derby...is it just me? I'd rather watch the NBA Finals on TNT, hell atleast Inside the NBA is an hour full of NBA Analysis, rather than 35 seconds of it

IF their lovechild, LeBron James, was in the Finals. They would dedicated an entire Sportscenter to him. Of course it would be hosted by Mike Tirico and Doris Burke w/ Closed Captioning on because you wouldn't hear a single word said with LeBron's junk in their mouth ther whole time.

Save your time and energy and avoid all things ESPN until the games come on. No pregame/halftime/postgame garbage, none of the screaming matches that comes on during the weekdays, and NO Sportscenter, which is the worst show on television.

I haven't watched anything non-games related on ESPN for the past 3 years now, and my sports watching experience has been much more enjoyable because of it.

Yea I agree. The PP 4-point play was on there and that was it. I was expecting both KG dunks and the Kobe alley-oop on there as well.

Every time I turn ESPN on there's something about Lakers-Celtics. If anything, it strikes me that their coverage is complete overkill.

You hit the nail on the head.

There are very few good analysts. They try to cover up for a lack of knowledge by crafting a certain persona. If I wanted to listen to comedy, I would turn to comedy central. Then you have guys who, try at they might, just offer bland analysis. My friends and I could come up with that stuff that they get paid to say. I wish they had people who could break down the X's/O's of the game, but they choose to dumb down the material to appeal to the casual fans.

BULLSH*T....they mention the finals about once every 3 minutes, meanwhile they cover the sh*t out of everything else, 82 regular season games and they would only recap a few each night and none of the plays would be in the top 10 and ALSO, they'd put freaking NBA fastbreak on at midnight and if college basketball is still in season, NBA Fastbreak is only 15 minutes long because they split it with College Game Night...ESPN is full of ****...THE FINALS ON TNT IN 09 FTW, I'M STARTING THE PETITION NOW!!!!!!
