Big Shot Rob on Access SportsNet right now and Mike D'Antoni's Laker coaching debut tonight against Brooklyn.

Ahhh........yes it's going to be a nice great night.

Lakers better get the W tonight so I can sleep well.


So, I see that Coach Dave Miller is not in the studio. Did Robert Horry replace him?

Anybody know if Dave Miller was there for any of the pre-game stuff?

Dave miller was not in studio. I don't believe he's been replaced, they'll have guest studio guys like horry and rambis and they usually bump miller out.

I'd wish they did some wide angle shots during the game, like on free-throws. Staples is known to be a "stage", i want them to present that. They have all the camera angels you 'd expect over the years, i just wish they'd experiment more. Uh and more exterior staples center shots only because its my favorite arena : )

I was happy they stayed during some of the timeouts instead of going to commercials. Fox never did that unless it was double overtime or something.

I understand the Lakers flew back from Sacramento ASAP last night so the players and staff could enjoy an early afternoon Thanksgiving dinner today with their families before flying out to Memphis later on this afternoon.

I guess its just as well, since they already delivered the turkey in a major way with that pathetic performance they gave yesterday. :D

IMO, doesn't look good when they try;

To avoid stretch-o-vision they typically zoom in on the original 4:3 picture to carve out a 16:9 HD image from it and then up-convert cutting away parts of the original frame and lowering the PQ at same time.

Better to just up-convert and pillar-box to me.

I the game was saved to film or shot with Hi Definition cameras even though it wasn't broadcast that way at the time, yes.

DIRECTV vs. The Lakers: Who Won? (TV Predictions)


There is no winner or looser. They negotiated until they came up with an agreement that both sides could live with. If there is a winner, it is the Directv viewer that wanted this channel. I would think that an agreement with Dish will not take to much longer.
1-HR21-100, 2-HR21-700, 1 w/eSATA, all networked, unsupported MRV. AT9 Dish(110 & 119 disabled) and SWM8.

I'm sorry, but this channel reminds me of the Bubba skit from Forest Gump. ( You have boiled shrimp, fried shrimp, and so on for a day or so.) Lakers, and crap about the Lakers.

We need to get back to a single RSN for each city (2 in LA, NY, and SFO). Too much filler crap.

Understand your feelings;

But its just additional reinforcement of the modicum of how "one man's 'crap' is another's treasure"

To ardent Lakers fans (like me) while certainly not perfect (what is?) and has room for improvement (what doesn't?).

The channel's still a thing beauty here. :D

I agree. Other than the games, which are blacked out for me, there is nothing on this channel. It would have been just as good as a game time only channel for those who actually get the game. I cannot believe DirecTV paid for this. The Lakers should have paid DirecTV to carry it.

Anyone know about the deal between DIRECTV and TWC? I hope it's only one year. Lakers will be a .500 team by the end of the year. And Dwight will go to Dallas for less money. This team needs to start over.............and hopefully DIRECTV will bug out after this year.

Don't count on it. DISH declined to renew the contract of each RSN in the NY market (#1 in the country) as they came up for renewal. In fact they have never carried YES. Today DISH does not carry any NY RSN. I could see them doing the same in LA (#2 market).

I personaly think a 1st class channel like TWCSN has non Laker fans jealous. Gotta be, only justification possible... It's a great channel. Did YES catch this kind of BS in the beginning? Did they carry other sports at the beginning? I think I've seen EPL, Nets basketball while scrolling the guide...sorry, I'm not a YES viewer, but I am pleased NY has this available on Directv...or any provider really. A channel with such focus on a storied franchise...fantastic!

It is not jealousy. It is just that TWCSN costs too much and takes up too many resources for what it is. When YES first came out, they did not ask for $4.00 per viewer, and it only occupied one SD transponder. TWCSN takes up four transponders (two HD and two SD) and TWC was asking for too much money.

My beef with TWCSN is the same as my beef with the PAC 12 network. I would be all for the PAC 12 network if it was like the Big 10 network, but seven transponders is too many to allocate to one conference. TWCSN and the PAC 12 network are resource hogs that show very little of interest to anyone east of the Rockies.

PAC 12 last reported offer to dtv was the same as dish. One full time Hi Definition channel one full time sd channel and then part time overflow game channels.

Really transponder space is not the issue on either of these. They have plenty of room.
