    I'll be honest: I don't give much of a shit about any of 'em except Barkley.

    I'd prefer NBC get it over TNT for yes the John Tesh theme. I like that more - and interested in what content we get from NBC/Amazon.

    ESPN and ABC are the worst and honestly I'd prefer never watching their coverage.

    It wasn't a tweet, it was a excerpt from Simmon's most recent podcast

    This. Give me NBC with John Tesh Theme with the Inside the NBA crew, and let me stream it for a reasonable price.

    Then I'm happy.

    Well, once Jody sells I think I will be...

    It’s a chemistry thing bro. When that crew is gone, you’ll see how much and well they play off of eachother.

    I hope Ernie can get out and keep the crew together.

    Duh Ernie will take the money and make it happen. I’m not worried at all.

    That offer is going to be so massive he’d be an idiot to decline. Look for the show to continue on nbc

    If TNT losses the NBA why are they going to want to continue to pay Ernie many millions? Why would he want to be the lone guy left out of the NBA?

    I'd expect both sides settle on some sort of buyout.

    But all the talk now is probably just a bunch of posturing and bluffs for each side to get their best deal.

    I hope TNT is open to Ernie doing both.

    Personally I grew tired of their shtick. It got old....as everything eventually does.
