I'm usually not a fan of alternative views of sporting events on TV, such as the camera behind the goal in hockey, or the endzone camera. I like them for replays, but not for the live action. That being said, I do like the occasional switch to the overhead camera from (presumably) the scoreboard in basketball. You can still see all the players, and get an "Xs and Os look" at the floor, as if diagramming a play.
I wouldn't want this to be the view for the majority of the game, but I like the ocassional switch to it.
