Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

Yeah, this season is HUGE. Probably because this was one of the greatest off-seasons ever... there's gonna be some interesting matchups when we get started.

I don't think so sadly. Does your Dish move slow when it changes channels and does it take a long time to load the info from the guide?

I WANT MY NBA TV.

Dish and DirecTV are a bunch of moron swindlers...I have it at my other house and there cable wen't out on my box and they wanted to charge me $75 to come look at it.

Plus $20 for a remote. Then they put you in a contract where if you get out of it it's your life. 900 channels and 800 of them you have to order. They think of every way possible to take all your money..

It's not like Time Warner's any better though. Before Dish Network, I was with them and their cable box messed up on my TV and would pop out whenever it wanted to. I got terrible reception and it pissed me off. That's when the switch was made to Dish Network.

Hopefully they'll start to expand NBA TV and put it on Dish and Direct TV too.
