      For me, I like to have the better announcers on the broadcast. At the very least, a fresh opinion from the Devlin-Jack-Leo homer crowd

        US national TV games are an indication of how popular your team is. Popularity means exposure, which means advertising & sponsor dollars for teams and players. Teams and players care a lot about being on US national TV - especially Chris Bosh.

          It's up to the Raptors to make their own U.S. national TV games.

          Raptors had 20 last year from April 16 on. Just have to do it again.
          If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

              I know that the Flames and Raps have been talking for awhile but there were always scheduling issues with the Saddledome. I believe they wanted to do something here after the Great Flood!!!! but the arena wasn't ready.

              First time in Calgary for 20 years or so. I drove up to Calgary and watched Raps/Grizz in 96(?) I believe.....

                  I really wish they would have announced the game against GSW earlier.

                          That's what it's like in Vancouver too. We need a team back here.

                            The networks and league tried to put Raptors as the last possible choice for national TV until ultimately they had no choice. The fact that Raptors are on west coast trip over Christmas holiday yet league choices to put Lakers at Clippers on Christmas night instead of Raptors at Clippers is a huge sign of disrespect. It does matter re getting national TV games.

                              Los Angeles is a massive US market, and the Lakers, struggling or not, have one of the most famous and recognizable brands in the world. Its not disrespect. Its economics. More people in the US will tune in to see the Lakers than they will the Raptors. It doesn't help that Lowry/DeRozan aren't very marketable, or that the Raptors employ a style that is difficult to stomach.

                                The christmas games are not for saying "youve made it as a top tier team". It's not like a mid carder getting the intercontinental belt (90s wrestling plug) they're strictly about dollars and cents. That's why new York and la are always 100% guaranteed locks plus whatever team lebron james and the reigning Champs and mvps play for.

                                The last time we had a game we had vince carter. We were one of the 10 most buzzed about teams for a couple seasons. Vince Carter's dont come around very often. He was one of the most electrifying players EVER from like 99 to 2001.
