Re: FYI.. Blazers/Houston Game On ESPN Tonight (7 PM PST)

I actually prefer watching the non-local broadcasts, as I like to here a "Non-biased" opinion of the Blazers players.

Is that just locally?

Totally agree. Getting that unbiased view of "the youth movement" should be interesting. Aside from the Telfair article on ESPN.com today, the Blazers "youth movement" hasn't been much of national story.

I'm looking forward to the game. Man, if Portland can find a way to win, and win in exciting fashion, the real buzz could begin about our future.....

Re: FYI.. Blazers/Houston Game On ESPN Tonight (7 PM PST)

Does anyone know if it's just the local ESPN that gets the game? I don't see it listed anywhere where it's on ESPN and only know if Philly/Suns that's on ESPN.

Sorry to ask, but I've been fortunate to have league pass the last few years, but since my move, I don't have it.. Thanks..

I agree. I have league pass and have to say that its interesting hearing other teams announcers opinions. That being said, the Wizards announcers were my favorite so far. They seemed the most impartial announcers I've seen yet. At least for the one game I've heard them.

I don't think ESPN does anything regional.

ABM - where did you get your info? I don't see it scheduled to be on ESPN.

ESPN does not regionalize NBA. They do regionalize some college hoops.

I'm in San Diego, any way I can catch this game without league pass? I know I can't, I am unsure of why I am asking.

Sorry about that, all. I was just going by my (not so) trusty Blazers schedule that I printed out from the O-Live website. I was a little disappointed when I went to watch the game last night - only to see the Suns/Philly game on instead. I guessed that it was changed due to the crappiness of the Blazers. ;)

Hearing other announcers is one of my favorite parts of having league pass. The different approaches (from the relatively unbiased Lakers announcers to the terrible homers of the Warriors) gives a glimpse into what fans in other cities see and hear on a daily basis.

It's good to get a chunk of Blazers' games announced by the Blazers' crew, but generally I prefer to have the alternate perspective.

I haven't seen broadcasts by many other teams, but last year I caught a game by the Mavericks announcers. The worst announcers and the worst homers I've seen. It was a miserable experience.

Edit: There was a game during the east coast trip this year that I caught the other team's announcers. I can't remember, maybe it was Washington or the Nets but I loved their announcers. So yeah, it's fun to get the other perspectives.
