No they're not. But it's a lot more fun to read in to it like that.

Not everyone is going to switch, so, the Lakers stand to lose the most should DirecTV (and Dish) choose not to deal. The Lakers very much want DirecTV and Dish to shell out the doe.


You don't think they're losing revenue because of this as well? I assure you they are.

DTV's proposal was to offer it on specialty tier, which TWC rejected.

If Phil comes back, TWC/Lakers just put a strangle hold on DTV and Dish in terms of negotiations.

The fans will be irate if they can't see their beloved commander-in-chief return. Kinda makes you wonder if that aspect didn't also play a part in the firing of Brown...this is coming off the heels of when negotiations broke down after Cox finally decided to join.

Ugh, my cable connection is suddenly jacked up. Picture is freezing, audio cutting in and out, etc. So I call TWC, eventually get to a supervisor who starts with, "How are you today?" and I respond, "Well, the Lakers just fired Mike Brown so I'm doing pretty well." He starts laughing and we go through the whole deal with getting my signal fixed.

At the end, he says, "So, have the Lakers announced a replacement for Brown? What's going on?" Then I had to give him the full update. Poor guy was stuck at work and didn't hear the good news.

"Basketball reasons" is as believable coming from Mitch Kupchak as it was coming from David Stern. #IWantedPhil

Any word on if a deal with Direct TV is getting closer? It's frustrating not being able to watch any of the games.

Hopefully the Dodgers have learned what a disaster TWC has been and they stick with Fox.

Yup, and TWC will probably offer them 2x as much... with all costly acquisitions this past season and missing the post-season, the Dodgers will be looking for mucho $$, and they can't really milk the concession stands much more than they are LOL.
