Mavs/Nuggets too late for TV
I was going to post a follow up to my first posting on this series, but Game 2 didn't tip off until nearly 10 p.m. Texas time.
That is unacceptable.
And don't think the NBA doesn't realize this. Dallas/Fort Worth is one of the top five TV markets in the country. By choosing to start this game according to Colorado time, the NBA shot itself in the foot with TV ratings.
They could have started at 8:30 or 9:00 Dallas time and you would have little complaining from Mavericks fans, but they chose, I guess, to wait until the end of the first game on the TNT doubleheader?
So, I know the Mavs lost, Josh Howard got hurt, and Dirk had a good game.
Again, thank you, NBA.
