Fans pick Lakers game for NBA TV. Again.
National NBA fans sure seem to like the Lakers. Or maybe like to hate the Lakers. Either way, they keep voting for the Lakers.
Each week NBA TV allows fans to vote, from a slate of scheduled games, which they'd prefer to see on the Tuesday night Fan Night broadcast.
This Tuesday it's the Lakers at the Washington Wizards (the game earned 54% of the vote). That makes five out of 13 weeks the Lakers have been voted onto the NBA TV island. More impressively, every time the Lakers have been on the ballot, they've has been picked. The game will be on at 4 p.m. PT.
The pregame studio show hosted by Ernie Johnson with analysts Chris Webber and Kevin McHale begins at 3:30 p.m.
You can also vote for the Feb. 2 game at nba.com beginning at 5 a.m. PT Tuesday. The choices?
Memphis at Cleveland; Toronto at Indiana; Milwaukee at Orlando; Detroit at New Jersey; Atlanta at Oklahoma City; Clippers at Chicago. No Lakers. So everybody else has a chance.
