not every game is a national broadcast, even in the playoffs (although most are)


i'm glad they are doing this with NBA TV .... i subscribe to the league pass, but I don't get NBA TV ... this makes me very angry ... especially when they put my team on NBA TV and not the package ... which is probably what they would of done in the playoffs
