As far as anyone knows there isn't a deal done yet. So no start date because so far there isn't anything done.

Many people have said, and it sounds about right, that the first and foremost deal for TWC is with DirecTV as they have over a million subscribers. The numbers are such that TWC needs DirecTV in order for their new deal to make sense financially. The other deals will fall in line once DirecTV and TWC comes to terms.

But right now there is still no deal. Again, I'm resigned to the fact that I may not see any pre-season, but I truly hope that the rest of us non-TWC subscribers can see all or most of the regular season games.

I've seen Dave Miller on TV for two days now and I can't stand him. He's like a loud, over-enunciating, bobblehead.

Jeanie Buss touts Time Warner Cable's long-term benefits

The endless Twitter messages Jeanie Buss receives in her inbox mostly center on one thing — concern from Laker fans on whether their cable subscriber will feature Time Warner Cable SportsNet, which has a 20-year, $3-billion agreement to showcase Lakers programming including all their games. As The Times' Joe Flint reported, no cable outfit has agreed to TWC's asking price of an additional $3.95 per month to carry the channel.

Buss, the Lakers' executive vice president of business operations, conceded that she doesn't have the channel, either. But she relies on former Laker coach and longtime companion Phil Jackson for help. She plans to simply watch the games at Jackson's residence.

"Certainly we hope we'll be able to reach every single person living in Los Angeles and Southern California," Buss said at a recent Time Warner Cable SportsNet event. "I'm usually at the game. But when they're on the road, I'm usually hanging out with Phil since he's home. I don't see that issue coming up for myself."

Buss sounded mindful of the potential short-term repercussions over the new network. Some Laker fans could miss out on at least some preseason games should other cable providers fail to pick up Time Warner Cable's channel. Assuming that gets resolved, customers could feel the squeeze out of their own pockets.

Still, Buss hopes Laker fans understand the positive benefits the channel arrangement will bring the organization.

The Lakers have a league-high $99.2-million payroll, which will cost them an additional $28.9 million in luxury taxes. Starting next season, that burden becomes greater. NBA teams must pay a $1.50-to-$1 ratio for the first $4.99 million they are over the luxury-tax threshold, a $1.75-to-$1 ratio for being $5 million to $9.99 million above the threshold, a $2.50 ratio for $10 million to $14.99 million over, and a $3.25 ratio for $15 million to $19.99 million beyond the threshold. The Lakers will also have to shell out more money in revenue-sharing.

If not for the Lakers' cable deal with Time Warner, the deals with Dwight Howard and Steve Nash might not have happened. Likewise, such acquisitions only fuel more content and interest in the cable program.

"It's tradition and we deliver on what we promise," Buss said on the organization's ability to strengthen its brand. "That builds faith from our fan base and that builds faith in our business partners. It's also from the players' point of view. Not only are we able to make trades and have a general manager like Mitch Kupchak, who's not afraid to pull a trigger. That attracts free agents that want to come here because of the positive nature associated with the Lakers. I can't be more proud of that. We'll continue to do that."

So Jeanie Buss has Directv and Phil has Time Warner.

OK, while i understand the logic that the TWC deal helped us get Howard and Nash. However, if we cant freakin watch Howard and Nash play, then what the hell was the point?

I know it wont matter once it gets done, but this just proves even more how greedy these corps are. They are gonna make billions regardless if they wait one month or no months. After all these years of (bleep) their own customers in the rear, how bout you do everyone a favor and do things off the cuff and do something decent and forward thinking. Just sad.

I understand what you're saying, but remember we still have one month until the regular season starts. If by then there's still no deal in place with the other cable providers, I really do expect fans to riot.

It's not like TWC isn't offering the channel to others. They are offering it. The others are choosing not to take it.

Now, if TWC chose not to offer the channel to other providers, I'd agree with you.

Agreed.

His homerism is beyond ridiculous. Nash a better player today than CP3? No. Just...no. :nono2:

What a game that was. I was sharting at halftime though, I didn't wanna believe that there was a possibility we could lose the game.

Any word on whether or not we'll be able to watch all of the regular season games on the channel? There was a possibility that we might not be able to IIRC.

lol Dave Miller always switches his stance. Wont be long before he hopes on CP3's nuts...last year he said CP3 is better than Kobe mainly because he got to coach him as an Assistant with the Hornets. Once CP3 refused to come on his show on 710 for an interview he changed his tune

Dave Miller is supper annoying. he thinks he knows it all. They should've hired Mychal Thompson to take Dave Miller's analyst spot.

Im having some $$ issues so I had to cut cable completely so I wont get TWC channell at all (unless Im at a friends house watching it)....so you peeps have to upload youtube videos on here if they have special programs lol

No idea, right now I'm under the impression I will have to get NBALP to see the live games. We will find out soon enough though. Either way the backstage Laker stuff is beyond great.

Yes, sort of. For example, away games will be on TWC SportsNet but they will also be on the other's team's channel which I'm sure the NBA League Pass will tap into. It's just the Home games for SoCal residents that we will be in a bind.

You're not supposed to be able to get live games if you have the national version of the channel. That's people who aren't in the local coverage area. Maybe we'll find out Sunday if that's the case. Although it's only the preseason so it may be different.
