The two best teams in the NBA play tonight. No Leonard, no Durant.

Ugh. Also no Iggy, no Klay, no Steph, no Draymond playing. No me watching.

Interesting comments by Iggy and Draymond.

I think if I had bought a ticket to that game, I would be looking for a refund!

Not a single San Antonia Spur fan has the right to ask for a refund.

Gate receipts account for about 25% of NBA income and the trend is downward. So NBA teams care less and less about disappointing their fans who buy tickets. ESPN/ABC signed a multi-billion dollar contract with the NBA and they get to pick their games. That's a big reason stupid travel schedules are made. ABC/ESPN wanted the Warriors vs Spurs game as their prime time game for ratings and advertising revenues. They didn't get that because of Kerr. I'd guess the TV ratings for last night took a severe hit.

NBA players and coaches are getting record contracts because of TV money. The NBA ... and in turn their owners and coaches ... will face some hell-raising from ESPN/ABC for sitting star players.

ESPN is not doing well financially. NBA moves like last night are helping to kill their golden goose. Prime time players making hundreds of $millions from TV revenue need to show up for work in prime time.

ABC/ESPN had the Cavaliers and Clippers for their prime time game last night. Promotions hailed multiple superstars and future Hall of Famers for the fans. But no Lebron, no Kyrie, and no Love or Korver. Really ... no love!

The NBA Commissioner? Little things like putting on poor games in prime time with healthy superstars resting on the bench don't seem to matter. The Cavs scored 31 points in the 1st half. Really Prime Time stuff from the NBA Champions.

When does the NBA reach the point of failing to honor their lavish TV contract?
