    HANG TIME NEW JERSEY – We’re almost there.

    Four teams officially got the 2012-13 NBA season started with media days on Friday, and the other 26 will do the same on Monday. The preseason, amazingly, is just a week away.

    The Boston Celtics will tip off the preseason when they visit Fenerbahce Ulker in Istanbul next Friday, a game you’ll be able to catch on NBA TV at 2 p.m. ET.

    Want some even better news? That’s just one of 29 preseason games you’ll be able to catch on NBA TV this year. The full NBA TV preseason schedule is below, and it features 26 of the league’s 30 teams.

    Opps bold the wrong date. The two Houston games are:

    Sun Oct. 14 2:00 PM San Antonio Houston Houston, TX
    Wed Oct. 24 8:00 PM Houston New Orleans New Orleans, LA

    BTW is it possible to modify a post?

    Why some teams get more air time?

    Don't all teams play the # of same preseason games? Why even New Orleans have more games on the air than us?

    Yes, all NBA teams play between 7-8. Rockets for some reason have only 7 listed. New Orleans probably have more games to be broadcasted nationally because of #1 pick Anthony Davis.
