    Well it was interesting to read today how the NBA Playoff scheduling is done. Stern said the TV networks request, that a certain game be carried on a certain day. Hmm, so, ABC requested the Pistons Cav`s game be on Saturday night, and the NBA obliged.

    Stern could have said no, and should have.

    Does anyone ever remember a 2nd round playoff game coming on network tv, in prime time? SECOND ROUND!!

    Maybe Stern and the networks realize Lebron`s playoff run will be over real soon and they want him to get as much exposure as they can muster.

    Now the game is on at 5:00 pm on ESPN, while the Spur`s Mav`s matchup is at 8:00 pm Saturday.

    What! No Lebron in primetime, perhaps they sense another Motor City beatdown of the Cav`s?

    You just know this will backfire and the Cavs Game 3 will be a thriller.

    I was really happy to hear this. It means I can watch both games now without having to lose major shuteye in the process.

    I hate staying up until the wee hours of the morning just to catch the West coast games. :ohwell:

    Tell me about it. I have to wake up at 6:00 am in the morning, yet there are some late games I feel I must see.

    Sometimes I find my self listening to the game on TV! If there is a loud crowd reaction I lift my head to see what is going on, if I am not out like a light........
