By far the biggest issue with the NBA playoffs
God damn 9:30pm start times.

Don't these a-holes know we have little kids and jobs!!!! I'm tired of falling asleep at halftime of every West coast game

I'm going to give ole Adam Silver a call and write a very strongly worded letter, that should do the trick

re: By far the biggest issue with the NBA playoffs
It's funny. I saw a thread on another forum that was complaining about the Sunday games starting at 10:00 AM and 12:30 Pacific Time. I was thinking that Sunday was probably one of the few times when the NBA didn't give preferential treatment to west coast audiences. But they should have started the Nuggets/Blazers game last night at 9:30 EST. Denver is in the Mountain Time Zone so the game actually began at 8:30 in Denver with the game ending at around 11. It made no sense not to move up the times an hour earlier.

re: By far the biggest issue with the NBA playoffs

Give me a 5:30pm first game, and an 8:00pm second game

They should at least tailor the start times to the time zone they are playing in...

So you want to start the GS/Hous game at 9:30pm tonight? fine

When they go to Houston it better be at 7:30pm

The game started at 10:30 PM EST last night which is 8:30 PM Mountain Standard Time. It makes no sense to start a game that late when they could have easily moved up the times for both games an hour earlier.

I think the bigger issue is that they don’t use other channels

Why not just use TBS or Tru Tv?

8pm for the first game is a perfect time.
If you wanna start the second game at 10, move it to TBS.

Game 3 is at 7:30pm in Houston. Game 4 is 830pm, which actually makes for a better crowd in Toyota Center.

I say we just do what China does and have a single time zone.

Problem solved.

Agree. I watch games occasionally but don't really care unless my Magic are playing(but we suck so you know). Just not worth it to stay up that late if it's not my team.

This post is bothering me more than it should.

9:30 eastern is 7:30 mountain
We're in daylight time, not standard time

So 9:30 EDT is 7:30 MDT (the time zone Denver is in)
