March Madness is finally upon us! And while college basketball usually gets most of the props for making March such an exciting month for all of your hoops fans out there, the NBA also deserves credit for making this month so memorable. Why, you ask? Well, in March, all of the NBA teams looking to make the postseason start to make one final push to try and gain a berth in the NBA Playoffs. So every game is meaningful—and you won’t want to miss a minute of it.
Fortunately, you don’t have to. Especially if you’re tuned into NBA TV Fan Night every Tuesday, where you get to decide which game you’ll be watching. All you need to do is visit the NBA TV Fan Night site and vote for which game you want to see in the box on the right-hand side of the page. And, at the end of the week, NBA TV will play the game that receives the most votes. For Tuesday, March 8, you’ll get to decide whether you want to see the Golden State Warriors take on the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Philadelphia 76ers battle the Indiana Pacers, the Milwaukee Bucks visit the Washington Wizards, the Portland Trail Blazers play the Miami Heat, or the Houston Rockets tip off against the Phoenix Suns. All of them have playoff implications and all of them could help determine who makes the postseason—and who gets left out in the cold this spring.
So, it’s decision time. Who are you going to vote for? To help you out, VIBE asked Music Editor John Kennedy and Marketing Assistant Jennifer Veras to tell us who they will be casting their votes for this week. Check out who they like in the video above and then head over to the NBA TV Fan Night site to vote for yourself. Remember: You can vote once a day, every day to help your favorite NBA team get some national airtime. March Madness is upon us. And your squad needs you to be a part of it. So….GO VOTE NOW!
