HD & 5.1, not too shabby for preseason. Check out that studio!


One issue: Where are the NBA World Champion Detroit Pistons? Does the NBA really think the drama is more popular than the play?

HELL YEAH...the studio shots looked awesome..just a little out of focus though


shots from atlanta are definitely HD..5.1 is also booming


great stuff..


ken, i think the viewers would much rather see Shaq in action than see the pistons hold someone to under 70 points..no offense to the pistons but the style of play is boring as hell

This is one of the reasons why the NBA ratings are on the skids, and have been since MJ's departure; no understanding of how to market the product.


They've pounded away at pushing Shaq, and what has it got them? Nothing.

the ratings for the finals weren't so bad iirc


the product is actually doing just fine. you've got 1 billion more people watching and marketing opportunities/revenue opportunities in china certainly can't hurt

Were they watching Shaq, or to watch him & Kobe get beat?

Preseason? I don't think so. Maybe 3-4 years ago, but not now.

Shaq and the lakers were the big bad wolf..especially with payton and malone also getting aboard to try to get a free ring


any time you see big franchises get beat, you're going to get people talking


just like the sox and the yanks


the belief before the finals was that people didn't care who played..well when the East started winning games, people wanted to see the big bad wolf go down


so it was a combination of both


i don't think quite the same number of people would be tuning in tonight if the pistons and spurs were playing..


also, regarding TNT, looks like they've got an HD cam on barkley now..and even shots of kobe arriving were in HD..amazing..

looks good for the most part-getting some pixelation during fast motion though.maybe the 2nd game will look a little better.

KEN-quit complaining and enjoy your championship!! ;)
