Playing in the NBA doesn't lend itself to regular television viewing.
Lakers forward Pau Gasol took some time after practice on Tuesday to talk TV.
"I'm watching 'Fringe,' " said Gasol. "I'm in the second season."
Playing 82 games a year, plus exhibitions and playoffs, Gasol doesn't have much luck keeping up with shows airing weekly.
"The shows that are happening right now, you have to wait for a whole week to catch the next episode," said Gasol. "I like to buy the DVD season and go through it. If I feel like watching another episode, I'll watch the next episode. I don't have to wait until next week."
With such a heavy travel schedule, games nightly and busy days of practice, NBA players probably have a difficult time keeping up with their DVR viewing during the season.
