I guess people really dont want to see political messaging during a sports game.

They got triple whammy with the season feeling jacked up because of the covid break, no audiences made the games feel small and weird to watch, and then the social justice stuff was just icing on the [poor ratings] cake.

Nba championship game getting a 3rd of the ratings it got last year when it is (sometimes) competing for air time against regular season football? Yah, i doubt it.

Also it was between two huge market teams.

I think it doesnt help that sports networks had very little narrative involving the players because the players kept bringing up blm. Audiences dont want to watch that on sports center. Thus less personal interest in rivalry narratives like we had back in day.

It was at an off time.

The NBA fan base is way younger than the NFL fan base anyways. You're not triggering the same old group of boomer white men like you do with the NFL.

And it's less about the politics than the fact that the NBA is dominated by super teams and super players like Le Bron. It's just boring to watch the NBA be dominated by teams for years on end. In the NFL, any team can suddenly have a resurgeance because of a good draft and because there are fewer games which gives underdogs more of a shot.

Which goes to say, Obaminated being the dumb fuck he is choses a conclusion and picks some cherry picked observations to support it.

That is why he's a fucking failure in life and a fucking retard as well.

I seen they went from 18 some million to 5 something. Holy shit is that a drop.

I havnt watched the NBA since the 76ers lost.to the Lakers, like 20 years ago.

But that is an insane drop.

LeBron hasnt helped much either, deciding to side with China first, but then push some SJW shit to boot.

They forgot the golden rule about sports: it's supposed to be escapist entertainment. People watch sports to have a couple hours of mindless fun and forget about the world's problems for a bit.

Instead, these SJW athletes decided to turn their game into an outsize BLM rally. They brought the world's problems to the sport.

"Shut up and dribble" may sound callous, but it's a message that the league needs to hear. They're athletes, not political commentators. Stick to playing basketball.

Also, lol at moron Dukhat being wrong like always.

Cuckhat explains the MASSIVE drop in ratings due to nba having a younger fan base and not being triggered by blm. Yeah. That makes sense in the world where cuckhat is a billionaire investor married to a hot wife.

Your arguments are so dumb. Their are many reasons for the drop in ratings. Your reasoning about politics is fucking retarded. Many people got pissed at the NFL. They still watched. People aren't watching the NBA for many other reasons.

You fucktards get so easily triggered and you come up with the most spurious dumbfuck arguments.

How many nfl teams wore blm jerseys, cuckhat? How many stadiums had blm banners everywhere? How many nfl players made it a point to constantly bring up blm during interviews?

You are trying to dismiss a 66% drop between one year to the next and you are embarrassing yourself with your lack of a coherent reason.

"Nba championship game getting a 3rd of the ratings it got last year when it is (sometimes) competing for air time against regular season football? Yah, i doubt it. "

NBA championship is normally in June, when there is no football.

Anyway, I do believe the BLM messaging, the China hypocrisy, and the unnecessarily long NBA playoffs bleeding into football season have a strong effect on ratings.

Cuckhat wants LeBron to father a child with Cuckhat's wife.

I think politics clearly can't be the only reason. Its too big of a drop. Most people who watch basketball aren't white, and are much more likley to be cool with BLM.

So an 18 mill down to 5 cant be the sole reason. Probably plays a factor though.

purple haired pro crime sjw bullshit is definetly part of it. Lebron comes off as a weak and whiney loser. Competing against the vastly superior sport of football is also part of it.

I mean, football is the all-american sport. Theres something there for everyone. Big fat guys can play the line. Skinny quick guys can play. Smart guys can coach and strategize. Geeks can play FF. White guys, black guys, football brings us all together. Even soccer queers can become kickers.

It might be the one thing holding this country together at this point!

Nba has zero chance against that.
