No TV coverage of Barcelona-AC Milan this afternoon. I'm sure those highlights of the Bulls' first three titles, followed by the World Series of Poker, will really serve a major market niche. You might think that ESPN would want to hype the World Cup, to which they're going to devote hundreds of broadcast hours this summer, by showing more soccer, especially a game in which both sides are replete with major players for this summer, but you'd be wrong. Bastards.

I, for one, enjoyed the old Bulls highlights. Oh, how I pine for the days when the NBA was actually 5-on-5 and watchable.

The NBA was 5-on-5 when the Bulls' offense at crunch time was "get the ball to Michael and get out of the way"? Maybe you are confused with the old Lakers-Celtics games.

By the way, you might want to watch Phoenix play. They are a real throwback team.

Completely agree with your assessment of Phoenix. Jersey and Detroit are the other 2 current teams that come to mind that I don't mind watching.

Perhaps I'm just sick of the mismanagement of the Hawks, and as such I have a hard time watching anything NBA these days.

19 games? Impressive.
