Not even a SUN afternoon game? And 9PM starts? Monday Night Football had a tough time keeping viewers with 9PM starts, and that's the freaking NFL.This is all you need to look at to know how full of shit David Stern is when he claims the NBA's popularity is at an all-time high. Weekend afternoon double & triple headers on NBC used to be the shit. Marv & Fratello doing the Eastern Conference game (seemingly always in NY or CHI), Enberg & Steve Snapper Jones doing the Western Conference game (seemingly always in Portland or, well, Portland), the cool NBC intro song, start times that said, "Fuck you, West Coast." It was all great.

Makes perfect sense when neither team in on the west coast. San Antonio is on Central Time. Start the games at 7:30PM in Cleveland and 7:00PM in San Antonio so the game starts at 8:00PM in the East.
If by "a little", you mean it makes it impossible for anyone under 14 / 15 years old to be an avid NBA fan, then yeah. I agree. Just like MLB. And they wonder why suburban kid is more and more into soccer & x treme sports...

14/15 year old kids don't drive advertising dollars (10.00 a week in allowance does not make advertisers drool).
