ESPN Hype Works...

Recently I dug into the Worldwide Sports Leader for its incessant hype of the Christmas Day matchup between the Lakers and Heat, the first Shaq v. Kobe matchup. I felt it was overbearing, unnecessary and would turn off more fans than it would draw in...

I was sorely mistaken.
Saturday's 8.0 overnight rating for the Miami Heat's overtime victory against the Los Angeles Lakers was the best for an NBA regular-season game on any network in nearly seven years.

Good hype and it was a very good game.
