"Is there another, watchable, alternative to watching games without Sky?"
Sky don't even show NBA games, i've got NBA League Pass (See NBA.com
). Can stream live games or watch them on the replay service they do (although the games just loop over and over, you can't actually control/skip parts of the game)
I'm a Lakers fan btw, didn't see this thread before, all star weekend was decent, last dunk by Nate Robinson was crazy!
