Ben Silverman, Basketball Fan

July 21, 2008 1:51 PM

If NBC Entertainment Co-Chairman Ben Silverman could reprogram the summer schedule, what would he do differently?

“I wouldn’t have had the Lakers play the Celtics,” he said, as a majority of NBC’s summer debuts, including “Fear Itself,” went toe-to-toe with the ratings-dominating NBA Finals.

If Mr. Silverman had his way, the Finals would have been the Memphis Grizzles against Vancouver, which would be pretty one-sided, considering Vancouver doesn’t have an NBA team anymore.
