I hear ya.....totally bummed about this blunder. How can they advertise that they are going to broadcast NBA games and not deliver?

Hopefully I am just jumping the gun.....we'll see.

This is so frustrating, in part, because no one can give out a straight answer. The form letter you got is old and out-of date. If you follow the link they give you, it says nothing about the NBA. Some of their web pages do still have NBA references on them, and others don't.

As I've said before, carrying the NBA is not very important to me; communicating what they are doing with the NBA is very important to me.

see, going by the website, and the play by play channel 3 saying they carry the nba games, i picked sirius. I would have gone with XM otherwise. NFL is great, but I watch the games on Sunday Ticket, I didnt need the radio for that.

Scan your SIRIUS dial tonight (start with channels 123 at 8pm, 125 at 8:30pm and 126 at 10:30pm -- all Eastern). We'll have something to say as soon as we possible can.

I heard all 3 NBA games last night on SIRIUS!!!!! Thank you Sirius!!! I think there were no scores listed for det/hou because it was the espn game. joel meyers voice is a drain on the lakers/nuggets game, but so was the way denver was playing so I just watched the scores. THANK YOU SIRIUS for the best of professional play-by-play!!!

Great News! NBA!

Whats up with my Bulls, are they so bad that they haven't even been scheduled to play a game yet? The Lakers already have 2 in the books.
