    All the kids are gonna be amped for this one. This is Kyrie's chance to continue what he started this weekend and prove himself to the nation. This is Dion's first time on ESPN as an NBA starter. I hope they put on a show and lock up a couple national TV games for next season.

    Really looking forward to this. Been too long since our last national tv game (LeBron's return was it?). Hopefully the guys bring their A game.

    Big game for the tank. Our second half is brutal and it's crucial we don't beat these teams.

    I wanted to set my DVR and couldn't find the game listed. Thought it was a temporary glitch. Did not occur to me until this thread to look for it on ESPN. :chuckles:

    Cavaliers vs. Bulls - 77%

    Looks like some more non-FSO attention coming our way.

    NBATV is not National TV.

    Well, we're not paying for it, and we have it, so I assumed.

    We're getting some attention that's not FoxSportsOhio.

    A couple things:

    -NBATV is a channel that comes standard in most cable and satellite packages throughout the continental US. It also isn't localized. So by definition, it is national TV.

    -Even though tomorrow's game will be on ESPN, I still see an FSO listing for it tomorrow. It's possible the game will be simulcast. The NBATV game would be simulcast for sure.

    Yeah, the New Orleans game is listed on the Cavs website as being shown on both ESPN and FSOhio HD.

    New Orleans Cheer Leaders > Cleveland Cheer Leaders. Their cheer leaders must weigh at least 10 lbs less on average a piece. God damn.

    The Cavs can make a statement here. If they put on a good show, they'll open the eyes of a couple of people. I'm really excited for this one. I'll still watch it on FSO - Can't stand some of the ESPN announcers and I'm sure they'll stick us with the worst ones.

    Damn it! Agains Bulls? :( Why not Bobcats for example. Now I'm scared. People will probably be quite disappointed when Bulls bottles Kyrie up like they usually do. But we will see ;)
