Since it's an all (mostly) NBA day here I thought I'd throw out this nugget that you may or may not have seen. The NBA has a new TV Deal worth approximately $930 Million a year, which is up from the $766 of the previous 6-year deal. So what does this mean to you? Well absolutely nothing really.
The same Networks (ABC/ESPN, TNT) will have the games and the same players will be calling them. Well everyone but Steve Kerr.
There's a whole bunch of digital rights as well, but those are pretty irrelevant. So enjoy Mike Breen and Mark Jackson until 2016!!! (Jeff Van Gundy will go back to coaching in the next two years)
