    You ask me a question with 7 question marks, then you talk right past the answer.
    Maybe those studio-called games last season were so bad a) they stopped but b) I'd stopped watching by that time.
    Maybe you didn't pay attention last season.

    I could be wrong... but I believe the TNT games are on scene and the NBA.tv games are called from the studio. That's not unusual for NBA.tv, as they take feeds from local broadcasts but don't use the local announcers.

    Assuming that's how it works, my opinion is that the TNT games are unlistenable and the NBA TV games are abominations.
    I don't even understand why, if you pay them for League Pass, you can't avoid the TNT and NBA TV crews entirely and choose the road or home audio. I guess I do understand -- they hold us hostage for ratings -- but I disagree when they're getting our money directly.

    I love listening to the Jet and Chuck during the NCAA tourney.

    Webber is professional as is Anthony, Isiah is the very definition of smarmy, icky.

    As bad as "Players Only" is, does it get worse than Breen, VanGundy and Jackson debating if Westbrook is just taking a bathroom break?
