TNT seems to have the NBA whipped. Every Thursday, know as, "TNT NBA Thursday," TNT usually has a double header. What I've noticed is, there are almost always only two or three games on Thursdays. Why? Because, TNT wants you to watch there NBA action and, since there's no other action that night, you have to if you want NBA.
All in all, it's very smart. If people don't have tons of options for league pass, they will watch the national coverage. So, I'm going to give a thumbs up to TNT for getting that deal. Viewership should go up, the NBA probably has more money in its pocket as well.
Have you noticed any odd things about national TV coverage of the NBA? Let's hear in the comments!
