I've been in Spain for three NBA finals, and all three times, the games were carried LIVE on TVE-2. In the "old" days, there used to be the NBA game of the week...the show was called "Cerca de las Estrellas" (Close to the stars), but now, the NBA is a little more popular than even then, which is why you'll catch things live.

You'll have to do the math, since LIVE means about 2:00 a.m. Spain time. We never went to a bar to catch the game...we usually met at someone's home to do it. I would simply ask around your neighborhood where you'll be and see about who's open, etc. You may get lucky on the times, though, since Sunday games are usually early-afternoon.

By the way...Go Lakers. laugh

It's (NBA) usually on C+, I've caught a few games since I've been here (of my beloved 76ers).

Here's a schedule: http://www.cplus.es/codigo/deportes/retransmisiones_deportes.asp?Seccion=Retransmisiones

Yes! Go Bulls! wink Or better yet, Go Wizards! Wait, that'll be NEXT year. hehehe..

But seriously folks, I suppose if you couldn't find it on TV you could go to a cybercafe/easyEverything and listen to the game on an internet cybercast through headphones. Just an idea. laugh

In deference to MadridMan, former Bull Jack Haley was quoted on Sunday saying "whoever wins the East can pride themselves as the East champions. They'll tell themselves 'second place isn't too bad!'"

The Lakers will make mincemeat of either the Bucks or Sixers. I would love to see Earvin 'I'm not Magic' Johnson or Dikembe Mu-'Tom Boy' "take it to the rack" on Shaq. After watching Tim 'Not doin' a Whole lot of' Duncan and David "My Ship is Sinking" Robinson get worked by Shaq O'Neal "in my presence", the East will most likely be a four-and-out post script to the Lakers incredible run. :p

Having attended colegio in Orlando, I would too enjoy any public humiliation of Shaq "can't make free throws" O'Neill and the Lakers.

The Sixers would be better off with Epi coming out of retirement and Fernando Martín at center. With Eric "My Broken Foot Will Pale in Comparison to my Broken Heart" Snow and Dikembe "I Sound Like the Cookie Monster" Mu-Dumb-o trying desperately to cope with Shaq "I Don't Need Free Throws...a Dunk is Worth Two" O'Neal and Rick "All of a Sudden I can Defend Anyone" Fox, not to mention Kobe "Who's Your Daddy, Allen Iverson" Bryant, it ain't gonna be pretty.

The only thing the Sixers have going for them right now is Pat "Don't Call Me Jim" Croce. The only reason it might even go to six games is so the Lakers can win it at home...and burn the celebratory squad car out in front of the Staples Center. smile
