The NBA should know better, Oprah Winfrey has more power then commissioner David Stern and the league itself.
The queen of daytime talk has forced the NBA to change its upcoming playoff schedule..
The MIAMI HERALD reports that should the Chicago Bulls (up 3-2) and Miami Heat (up 3-1) win their series in six games or fewer, they’ll have to change the schedule because of Oprah’s final show on TV.
The NBA informed a few involved parties before Tuesday’s Bulls game that if the Heat and Chicago win their series in six games or fewer, Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals would need to be moved from Monday to Sunday night because the United Center likely is unavailable Monday to allow Oprah Winfrey’s crew to set up for the taping of one of her final shows. If the Heat or Bulls series go seven games, Game 1 of the Eastern finals would be Wednesday. -The Miami Herald.
Come on Stern don’t you know Oprah OWNS television, and everything it puts on EVER!!?
According to Chicago Bussiness, Oprah wants the whole arena to herself. Damn, this womans got power huh? Gettem girl!
So the NBA has decided that should the Heat finish off Boston tonight, and the Bulls finish off Atlanta tomorrow night, they’ll have a few days rest before beginning the next round. As for when game two would be, I’m guessing it wouldn’t be until next Thursday at the earliest since I’d assume the Western Conference Finals would be played on Wednesday.
Thanks Oprah, now what the hell will I do next week? This show better be amazing, I’m talking Ferrari’s for every idiot in attendance… you shooting money out of your ass (we know you have enough girl) and finally an appearance from STEDMANNNN!!!!!
