Welcome to National TV, Bucks

Sorry, T-Wolves and Suns. You’ve been bumped. Hope you can understand the decision: “Well, that’s what happens when you’re 1-12 with a 12-game losing streak…The Wolves-Suns game Friday at Target Center was scheduled for an unusually late 8:30 p.m. tip as the second half of an ESPN Friday night doubleheader. The game has been scratched from the ESPN schedule and replaced by the Oklahoma City-Milwaukee game that features Bucks rookie sensation Brandon Jennings and Kevin Durant and Co.”

    Infinitely better match-up.

  • Orlando Woolridge

    That seflosha/bell matchup is going to be bananas!

  • http://slamonline.com Ben Osborne

    Well earned. Blame David Kahn.

  • Dutch Rob

    If only we here in the Netherlands had ESPN:(
    Oh well just have to download it and try to stay away from spoilers and results. Def. watching this one. Durant and Young Buck:D

    As good as the Suns are, I stopped watching their game against Detroit after the 1st quarter cause I already knew who was going to win.

  • cramzy

    BJennings making it happen! Should be a dope game. I hope KD goes off

  • dma

    expect westbrook to drop some nasty dunk on bogut!

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com/ Seth

    Would’ve liked to see my man Big Al, but Westbrook/Jennings should be a good match up.

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    thAnk you Orlando Woolridge for a great laugh!!!
    I got one too: that Gadzuric(Bogut is injured)/Nenad Kristic is gonna catch fire!!!LMFAO

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    that matchup obviously…

  • Cizzo

    That A do it B.J.Buckets out here on the next!!

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    Ditto Seth, Russell and Brandon should be a tasty contest. Way I see it is this is a clash of at least three, probably four future all stars, altough only got young Buck is reppin Milwauke on that front

  • Ghost (of Olden Polynice)

    This is called Starpower. People want to see what Jennings is all about. High ratings = good for sponsors.

  • OneSun

    Steve Nash has been robbed.

  • http://mecwebb3@hotmail.com b*nasty

    i will believe it when i see it. last year the bucks were bumped from their only national game the day before. i never thought i’ld see the day the bucks made it back on espn. now if we could only get a tnt game.

  • Hoodsnake

    Was just looking through my old Slams. Found a punk Jennings at the back of an ’05 issue. Kid was a soph in HS and was marked for greatness already. SLAM DONE DID IT AGAIN:-)

    I’m pissed. I was anxiously awaiting the national television debut of Ricky Rubi… what? Oh, sorry. Never mind.

  • brett macdonald

    suns are 11- 3 ?

  • ENDS

    I really hated when they bumped my team off of National Tv at the last moment and then the local channels didnt have enough time to pick em up so we’d miss regular season games. My condolances to all 6 T-Wolves fans out there. I feel ur Pain

    Dutch Rob: get NBA League Pass Broadband International. Do it. I have it, and it’s brilliant.

  • Robb

    I’m glad for the Bucks fans. These are exciting times for them. Looking forward to that game.

  • GoNets

    lol @ Kevin Wilson, I think ESPN was still hopin Ricky Rubio was gon to magically appear vs Steve Nash, but then hope died. Jennings, Bogut vs KD, Russ WEst no brainer for sure

  • rob

    dont forget jeff green! :D

  • rob

    oh and KG is rollin in his grave :D ahaha

  • http://www.laumol.nl/weblog Laumol

    Everything everybody said Blake Griffin was going to do for the Clippers, Jennings is doing right now for the Bucks.

  • DMC14

    Well i’d rather watch the suns game but i am a suns fan.

  • Dutch Rob

    ey gerard ik zat er idd laatst aan te denken maar zijn die wedstrijden vanwege tijdsverschil niet in de nacht?

  • Dutch Rob

    en zend NBA LP ook de wedstrijden van espn en tnt uit?

  • BobbyFree

    Go Bucks!

  • Hoodsnake

    Dutch rob cant reply in your language but i kinda understand what you are asking (cos im from south africa) the games are usually between 2 and 4 in the morning and to my understanding league pass is league pass- a separate entity

  • Dutch Rob

    Already found some answers
    but Thanx Hoodsnake
    Found out that you can replay a game so
    I’m gonna get league pass for sure

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    @Dutch Rob
    you’ll need ilp.nba.com, the international league pass not the standard one that only works in n. America

  • http://www.another48minutes.com Gerard Himself

    Rob: did you read my response to your e-mail? Just to be sure ;)
    (and yes, INTERNATIONAL League Pass, but that’s pretty obvious)
