NBA Finals – What ABC Gave Us Instead of Basketball

abc-basketballIt’s seeming like almost an eternity for Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Warriors and Cavaliers. The teams last played on Thursday night, June 2nd, but we have to wait until Sunday night, June 5th for the next game. Three days may make sense when there is travel time between courts, but both Game 1 and Game 2 are both in Oakland. It just doesn’t seem right.

Lebron James even alluded to the huge gap of time between games, that may give Golden State more of an advantage given the fact they just went 7 games with OKC. Of course, the Cavs get the three-day rest as well, but it can also work against the team in cooling them down. Cleveland is hot to win Game 2, or fall behind 2-0 in what might be called an impossible task to win 4 out of the 5 following games.

The whole NBA Finals is spread out excessively, spanning over two weeks for a 7 game series (June 2nd through June 19). (See the full schedule here.)

So what did we get instead from ABC? Friday night during the regular 9:00 p.m. slot they aired “Shark Tank” (9:00 p.m.) then “20/20 (10:01 p.m.) ET/PT.

On Saturday, June 4th, ABC is broadcasting the new mini-series “Madoff” from 9:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

It’s a shame that ABC has interrupted the fluidity of the NBA Finals, maybe worse so than the referees taking 5-minutes to review an inadvertent foul. If the networks and refs are working to turn the NBA lukewarm, they’re sure doing a great job of it.
