Default NBA Home & Away Announcers?

Greetings All,
I love the NBA on Sirius but have one comment. Why don't they have the home and away announcers like they do with the NFL play by play? I love the Spurs and they have only had the Spurs announcers on 1 time so far. Just curious if anyone knows why?

I like having the NBA too. Listen to a game most every night. Nice to have a choice which team to listen to.

Probably would take up too many channels to do the home and away bit. Don't know how they decide which team gets the home announcing. I do like it for the NFL.

The NFL is only 2 days a week. Sunday Afternoons and Monday Nights. They aren't having to pre-empt many shows on Sunday Afternoons on the Talk Channels because many shows that run on the weekends are replays of what was already heard during the week. So Sirius can get away with having both Home And Away NFL Feeds on Sundays. The NBA and NHL games are on just about every night and if they had home and away feeds of both teams. There'd be alot of people screaming at Sirius for pre-emptions on talk shows in the evenings.
