"With no end to this lockout in sight, you have to wonder if these games might even be televised. ESPN and TNT are going to have some time slots to fill."

I've read that the networks are hesitant to televise any of this stuff for fear of pissing off the owners.

They should be pissed off at the owners. They paid a ton of money to televise these games and now they're getting nothing but big black holes in their programming for it.

You also have to wonder how long a network like TNT is going to keep paying their NBA guys if there are no games to televise.

I guess they could be worried that the owners/league will have a long memory when the next contract comes up and suddenly they'll look to other networks, or drive the price up, but I think the networks have the upper hand at this point.

I've read that the networks are hesitant to televise any of this stuff for fear of pissing off the owners.

The owners need the networks to air their games. If they get 'pissed' what are they going to do, refuse to put their games on national tv?

The lock out costs networks money and they have a right to get that money back.

Not sure these games would be any more fun to watch than Rucker park summer league games. All offense, no defense (and who coaches them?)

Good question about who would coach. Eddie Jordan is available.

Well all jokes aside, any non player who ever wants to work in the NBA on the 'other side' should not partake in this if it happens.

I'll be doing some scouting for the BFI
