NBA 2010-11 Schedule Released: Who has most National TV Appearances?


….it’s not the Miami Heat, ladies and gentlemen.

No, it is not the NBAs version of the nWo leading the way. It’s the Boston Celtics who are the team with the most National TV Appearances with 30 games to be televised during the 2010-11 Regular Season. The NBA released their regular season schedule, and I, like a dork was curious to see who got the most national love this season. The Orlando Magic come in 2nd with 25 while the Lakers and Miami are tied for 3rd with 23 a piece. The Bulls come in at 4th with 22, tied with the San Antonio Spurs but don’t sleep on the Thunder who have taken a giant leap to 5th with 21, tied with the Mavericks. The Blazers actually came in tied for 6th on this list with the Nuggets with 20. The combination of geekiness and boredom made me compile this list.

Seven teams will get no national TV love during the 2010-11 season: The Nets (thank goodness), Timberwolves, Raptors, Hornets, Warriors and Knicks  I’m a little surprised with the signing of Amare and the Knicks actually having a chance to *gulp* be halfway decent for once that they weren’t all over TV. No Chris Paul is also surprising.

  • Ryne

    That list by the NBA is missing a ton of games man

  • Raaaaaaaandy

    Why does that list say the Spurs have 22 National games, and then they also appear under “none televised”

    • Ryne

      The NBA released a screwed up list before. The Spurs have 23 national games.

  • Adam

    I read this as:

    1 Boston Celtics – 30
    2 Orlando Magic – 25
    3 Los Angeles Lakers/Miami Heat – 23
    5 Chicago Bulls 22
    6 San Antonio Spurs – 22
    7 Dallas Mavericks/Oklahoma City Thunder – 21
    9 Portland Trail Blazers/Denver Nuggets – 20

    Since there are 8 teams who have more nat’l games scheduled, the Blazers are tied for ninth.
