Does anyone know where to find out which play-by-play/analyst/reporters team is scheduled for which game?

Anyone seen a good summary of the new cap environment out there?

Wondering if some guys like Dirk, Kobe etc. might rework thier deals to keep things flowing. Dirk winning championships probably puts more endorsement money in his pocket that a salary cut.
If I understand correctly its not really a hard cap so they don't have to. If they are more then 4mil over the tax they get the mini mid lvl, and I believe if your more then 5 mil over the tax you pay $2 for every $1 over. Then 50% goes to all the under teams and 50% goes to a nba "pool" for "related projects" like nba cares.

They want to gut the team to have cap room because they want to sign Williams, or Paul, or Howard. None of which do I expect to be available next summer.

It was just reported in the NY Post that DirecTV is not going to reduce the price of the NBA League Pass because of the reduced NBA season.

Should the Commssioner get involved on this? This makes no sense

NBA salary cap - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ok, I got off my butt and looked into this further finally.

The NBA League Pass is free from December 25th to January 8th


Wow that's two weeks, glad they gave the fans a little something after the lockout
