There is no doubt which team the television networks think NBA fans want to watch most – the Golden State Warriors.
The NBA has released their schedule for the 2017-18 season and the Warriors will have 43 of their 82 games broadcast on national television, according to data collected by Yaya Dubin. Not surprisingly, the Houston Rockets (40), Cleveland Cavaliers (39), Oklahoma City Thunder (37), and Los Angeles Lakers (35) round out the top five.
At the other end of the spectrum, there is a precipitous dropoff when we reach the Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic, two teams that will play in nine national TV games, combined, or three fewer than the Sacramento Kings (12).
