Sorry to start another "where to watch" thread, but is there an old thread that lists where to watch games outside of Louisiana?
Going to be in New Jersey this weekend and curious if anyone knows any places where the Saints game will be on? (Spots in NYC will work too)

Most of you know who he is but for those who don't, he's called NBA games since 1975. He's 74 years old and while he's had a nice run, I think it's time for him to hang it up.

Since San Antonio & Miami have large Latin/Hispanic populations in/around their cities, does a 2nd year of Spurs/Heat help the NBA gain Latin/Hispanic fans?

Russillo was just talking about this on the radio.
Who are the NBA players you can truly build a franchise around?

Is that the list? Anyone else you would build around?
