Last night, I watched an American basketball game (NBA) on free-to-air telvision.

This is the first time I've seen NBA on FTA Australian TV since ... *thinks* ... probably 1998?

IT'S ABOUT FUCKING TIME.

It was on the Ten SD2 channel (simulcast with HD I assume), and I've read that when they launch their 24 hour sports channel in a couple of days (which, it appears, will replace SD2), they'll also have 3 live games per week screening there. Bickety - as they say - bam.

I've been wanting to watch NBA games on TV for so long. Throughout my school years they used to screen 1-2 games per week as well as recap/highlight shows, and I've missed them so very, very much.

Oh, and last night's game? Miami Heat vs Detroit Pistons, with a superhuman performance by Dwyane Wade (rapidly becoming a new favourite player) pushing the Heat over the line for a last minute 5 point victory. Great stuff.

Now, if they can get the NBL back on the telly I'll be set.
