The Pistons On National TV

When the season schedule for every team comes out, the games being broadcasted on national television also come out. After checking out the Detroit Pistons schedule a few months back, I decided to return and look at what games the Pistons will be showcasing their talent in on TV.

The Pistons have only 3 games being broadcasted on National television. 2 on ESPN, 1 on NBA TV. Also, calling "NBA TV" national television is not completely true, given that many people (including me) don't have NBA TV.

Nevertheless, having only 3 games on National TV isn't that good. To put it in perspective, the Heat have 31 games being broadcasted across the US. Count 'em, THIRTY-ONE!

It's understandable that the Heat have more, because they won the Championship, but 31 and 3!?! That's a bit over the top.

However, the Pistons are NOT the least-nationally broadcasted team in the country this year. One team has only two nationally broadcasted games. Who is it?

You guessed it. The Bobcats.

Charlotte only has two nationally broadcasted games this year, and they're both on NBA TV. That means unless I travel to Carolina, or somehow the Bobcats miraculously make the playoffs, if the Pistons aren't playing the Bobcats I will NOT see them play.

This makes me really wonder about the NBA. Really? No matter how bad your team is, they'll still have a fairly large market. For one thing, I know a writer on Rufus On Fire that lives in Toronto! A WRITER!

If a writer on a well-known Bobcats blog doesn't live in or near Charlotte, then there has to be a lot of casual Bobcats fans around the country wishing more games would be nationally broadcasted.
