Default I see that ABC wants all NBA fans to watch the NCAA Tournament Today

since they only aired one game and not the usual doubleheader. what is ABC afraid to have a NBA Game go against a NCAA tournament game? Why couldn't this be a regular NBA sunday? Now i have to wait until 8pm to see another nationally televised game. This stinks!

Im not sure but I think the Networks have some kind of agreement. Like when the World Series is on there is no Sunday night Football, and Espn usually shows shyt like figure skating.

Who Cares bud, Watch the tourney baby!!!

I understand all that but as a NBA fan i still think I should have a choice whether to watch a NCAA game or a NBA game. To me next weekend is the biggest NCAA matchups since it's sweet 16

You're an idiot if you watch an NBA game over todays games.

Davidson led by Dell Curry son (look at you "who who who is dell curry?") defeats Gtown.

Butler gives Tennesee a scare taking them to OT.

Miami almost had a comeback vs Texas.

Get a clue...watch the NCAA because some of the players will be in the NBA.

It's not a matter of agreement, it's a matter of common sense. You know the NCAA tourney is on, you know it'll do insane numbers, so why use one of your contracted games for what will be a low rated session.

It's 2 weekends a year, people can manage not having multiple national games for a Sunday or two. Seriously, don't be ridiculous.

If you are willing to pay for the commercials NBA lost during the NCAA tournament then I think they will gladly show a double header.

Depends where you live. I didn't see any of the Georgetown game, and only the overtime of the Tennessee game. They were showing the WKU/SD game here, and although it was a pretty entertaining game, WKU dominated most of the way. I watched NBA instead.

Not going to disagree with you, but with the kind of money involved in the NCAA tournament, legitimate and illegitimate, the NCAA tourney will take utmost priority…

I cannot get a ABC NBA game before Christmas because of NFL and that frustrates me more than these couple of weeks in March…

All in all, NCAA sports is more popular to casual fans more than the professional sports in both football and basketball…

I have never once developed the affliction known as March Madness.


Although I did have the clap.

So people are mad because they get the opportunity to see some future NBA players in a playoff-like atmosphere?

These same people will end up debating how good or bad a college player is around draft time without watching any games and base their entire opinion on mock draft player bios and youtube videos.

the only thing good about march madness is the bracket pools. I don't know much about the teams but it's fun to participate. Other than that I cannot stand college basketball. It's pretty darn slow and boring. It seems like 90% of the time all they do is keep passing the ball at the perimeter against a zone D. It doesn't have the fluidity of the NBA game. And I admit I'm saying this having not watched many games but whenever I try it's typically this same kinda ****.
