5 Low Points In the History of the NBA on TV

Ed Note: Our continued walk down memory lane of NBA broadcasting continues courtesy our friends at Crossover Chronicles. Even today, it seems that a 9:05 or 9:10 p.m. Eastern time start to an NBA Finals game is a little too late. Yes, people live on the West Coast — I’m one of them, here in Seattle — but is it really asking too much to have an NBA Finals game (and an NCAA tournament...

Who on earth could handle that? Hey, David Stern’s got some free time on his hands...
