Report: NBA League Pass support team finally has good excuse for why subscribers can’t see games
With the season on hiatus, the NBA has little to be thankful for. But a new report is showing a bright spot for the technologically challenged league. As every single basketball game is canceled, the support team over at League Pass finally has a logical reason for why subscribers can’t watch games.
“Before the virus, every night would be the same thing: everyone screaming at us because they can’t watch their favorite team,” a representative from LP explained. “We had our script. We would just accuse everyone of being in Denver based on IP addresses, mumble something about blackout restrictions and pray they hang up. So with the shutdown, we were so eager to show up to work and finally have a good excuse. I put my headset on and got ready to say, ‘it’s because all the games are canceled, silly! That’s why you’re not seeing the games!’ But the phone never rang.”
Sadly, all the NBA LP reps were furloughed, and they were all asked to leave their Secaucus building. As the reps left, they each softly tapped the large sign above which had the NBA LP mission statement proudly written on it:
At NBA league pass, our number one goal for our valued customers is for them not to yell at us. If they can watch a game somewhere in there, great. But please, enough with the yelling. What is it with you people from Denver, anyways?
