    Bout damn time lol I find it weird that they show more NCAA basketball games than NBA here ??? Hell, the NCAA games are on T.V more than the NBL. ESPN Aus/NZ need to broadcast more NBA games. 2-3 games a week isn’t enough. 5-7 games a week of the regular season ought to do it. They should at least broadcast the entire playoffs like they do with NCAA’s march Madness. These day’s i find myself browsing youtube for daily recap’s of the Lakers. This is a good step in the right direction though. Don’t get me wrong, i enjoy the NCAA stuff, but I’d rather watch the big league’s play. Less NCAA, more NBA please.
