    Dude...I don't have cable. I called to get it and they wouldn't offer me the same deal they committed to in January on an open ended basis.

    So I don't know....

    You can watch em online.

    I use this to watch games, fights, ppv, etc... http://www.firstrow1.eu/
    Got to close a handful of pop ups and its not HD but it beats spending $70 on a lopsided Mayweather fight.


    For playoff games, I think TNT has it online, they have that ,multi screen and w/o any commentators but at least you see the game.

    That would be great! I tried to get video for the Giants in October and could only get audio. I just imagined it was WW2. And NO I wasn't alive then.

    For the 1996 world series TV was on mute, radio was playing. We listened to Michael Kay and John Sterling rather than hear those fools on Fox prattle on.

    Sometimes just listening is kind of nice. I have the games on while in the kitchen prepping dinner or doing the dishes.

    More evidence that espn should be renamed Hilarious Overreaction Network

    Today's headlines on their mobile site -
    Bulls done?
    Is Stephen Curry better than Lebron James?

    Now I didn't see Monday's headline but it was probably something like "Chicago the Giant Slayer".

    Is there another news source that has as much content than espn but won't make me feel like the lowest human denominator (which is clearly what this network caters to)?

    I like CBSSports.com and SI.com, I just like looking at the top headlines to keep updated for the most part.

    DUUUUUUUBS. NorCal and I, keepin the faith. This series has started eerily similarly to the one against Denver. Game 1, lose to an old-man buzzer beater. Game 2, come back to win rather convincingly. Let's hope it plays out the exact same way.

    Klay was on fire and I continue to be impressed by his defense. When you compare his defense to last year, it's seriously night and day. His jumper isn't always there, and he'll have a few rough nights in a row on the offensive end, but he's been very consistent on defense. I think the Dubs lost game 1 because he fouled out, which remains a problem for him. After he was gone, TP just destroyed everyone in front of him.

    I am surprised they managed to pull out a win with a very off-night by Curry. Just goes to show, the team is more balanced than most people give credit for.

    It helps that Mark Jackson is a defensive minded coach and that they are much healthier this year. I mean really, the only thing that can stop the Dubs now is Currys ankle.

    Interesting. Lakers. to Clippers. to Warriors.

    Winning one game against SA certainly doesn't make the"Dubs" NBA champions. There are 3 more wins against SA, Memphis/OKC, plus most likely MIA.

    But you were kidding I hope?

    I still prefer OKC to win it all over the Heat but it's hard to not cheer for the Dubs when they are so young and just give you a shooting exhibition every night.


    Plus like I said a page or two back, I don't think they are there yet and that they won't win but I'd be happy to be proven wrong once again.


    That has been how the Spurs been playing in this series though, getting buried and then making a comeback, which is exactly what happens in Game 2, they just couldn't make it up in time. Dubs just had a better response to the Spurs comeback last night and they just can't win the series playing they way they have. Really no bias on either end, just a an analysis on the game.

    i love the spurs, but so far they're kind of reminding me of last year's laker team. their window of opportunity might be closing. really like leonard and green, though, and maybe that's enough to build around.
