Only You Can Get the Knicks on TV
Teams play almost every Tuesday, and without national TV coverage (ESPN has Wednesday and Friday, TNT takes Thursday) most fans are left to local coverage, League Pass, or whatever game NBA TV picked in August. Simply allowing better choices during the season (as ABC has been want to do for its Sunday broadcasts) is a good step forward -- giving fans a say pushes it over the top.
AA's Brian Powell exacts fears the "Fan Night" will turn into Celtics central ... and that's a fair point. Hopefully New York will come through, though: the Knicks aren't on national TV once this year, and I think we're all interested to see what Mike D'Antoni can do with that roster. Vote Knicks '08-09!
