I guess that's a good point.
But still, we get to hear that every once in a while when the networks don't catch all of them. Still, I believe it would be highly entertaining.

The only thing you would listen to, would be the mic'd players and coaches...even in time outs, the conversations would be heard.
I would pay to see/hear that in a special premium channel in my satellite/cable company.
If it were possible, I would definitely pay for that. Personally, I would love to hear what the players talk about on the bench during blow-out games, especially someone like Delonte West.

How about no commentary just crowd noise? It's been done with Soccer.

I believe it was NSW who mentioned once in one of these threads that sports audiences are conditioned to having announcers on while watching games on TV. Play by play, etc. It's just something that we need. And I would agree with that.

I really hope we get Redick.

I liked Farmar...

I hope they don't trade Shannon. He's really starting to get good.

And sorry if this has been mentioned already (I don't keep up with this thread), but is Derek Fisher really looking at the Heat??

From ESPN;
LeBron Meets Fisher at Airport
LeBron James has gone from recruited to recruiter, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne. Miami's newest free agent went out of his way to meet Lakers free agent Derek Fisher, hoping to convince the five-time NBA champion to join the Heat. It was a short meeting as James was on his way to New York to attend Denver star Carmelo Anthony's wedding, while Fisher was on his way to meet with Heat presdient Pat Riley and team owner Mickey Arison.

I actually lost all respect for Farmar when I saw him interact (Or lack of) with fans at Staples. His demeanor was horrible and he was unapproachable, just like Kareem.
No big loss.

Oh really? Sucks to hear that about Farmar. Was a good player

As for Fisher- WHAAAAAAAAAAT? The Heat can go fall in a hole.

Aside from the Heat, I want to applaud the Bulls but why the fuck did they trade Hinrich?

I didn't see the sense there.

They traded him to clear his contract from the cap, just in case they had an opportunity for two maxes.

Hinrich wasn't that good anyway, and he was getting paid way too much to be the second best PG on the team, and we couldn't go forward with him as the starting SG. We have more flexibility now, and that's good.

No worries, I don't think they have doctors in Miami.

I'm going to enjoy rooting against the Heat.
