    As much as I like being on National TV, I really like being the underdog Rockets a tad bit more. Seems as if we are being overlooked by EVERYONE!

    Worth noting I don't think they count "NBA TV" as national TV appearances.

    I going to go with under 5 national tv games while Lakers, Knicks will have more than us

    EDIT: I'm 1/2 right so far

    Lakers are on the West Coast and are horrible. Were their national tv ratings great last year?

    Regarding Rockets, I can't decide if having an easier or harder first half schedule will be better. I guess easier, so they have time to gel. But if it isn't going to work, rather know sooner than later.

    I'm ok with that, since we've played 3 of the past 4 seasons on Christmas. I got my wish last season to play a home game on Xmas day which was great.

    At least we'll still have web streams - that's how I'm watching most Rockets games anyway.

    Surely they'll be a home game around the Super Bowl weekend (Feb 5th) maybe the Saturday before.
