    I’m excited for the ASG, not so much for the game itself but
    for the side events featured. I’m ALWAYS more interested in regular
    season play than the ASG, but it’s a nice rest for most players, and shows us the
    talents of some players we might not be able to see regularly. I’ve been
    watching a TON of basketball this season on my new DISH Hopper, and with the
    new Game Finder app I can find anything I want (sports-related) in an
    instant. DISH Game Finder allows me
    locate any game broadcast on TV, and helps me find favorite teams by name, get
    box scores of individual games, schedule recordings, and set reminders for
    upcoming games as well. It’s really nice
    having the DVR do the work for me, and I end up watching a lot of games I
    wouldn’t have otherwise spent the time to look for.
