Everybody plays the same, everybody is buddy buddy, no real rivalries, defense is becoming absolete so we're seeing allstar games played everyday from teams, and 1 superteam is dominating so everyone else is trying to build superteams, in the end its predictable. People only really care about the drama of players vs management now.
Most parity in the league tho check th records

If the league is so worried about which team is on which broadcast, have that team play the away game

People miss lebron that much and him competing w gsw, just have la as the away team in the east

The league should be able to work out the math & logistics

Teams play too many games as is, want more viewers, 58 games (every team 1 home and away game) playoffs top 8 get in no conferences

If you really want ppl to care enough to watch

you telling the nba is handcuffed to 3 players?
.... maybe.


In the post jordan era, the finals are at an all-time high every year. That doesn't carry over to local markets though. Lakers local market viewership has been trash for years.

I'm just saying, one game at 8pm on a friday night or a saturday night has an advantage against two games on thursday, one at 8pm and another at 10:30pm. ESPN clearly paid more to have the better time slot.

I only stream games through websites, even the ones on espn and tnt. Many people have cut cable because of outrageous prices.

The fact that cable companies are charging over 100 a month for some channels and internet got mfs cutting the cord at record rates.

If there were only a way we can quantify how many people view NBA games through a stream (“illegally”).
Pretty much..... SuperBowl had the lowest ratings since 2007

Sports as a whole have dropped......

I know people would love to see the NBA bring back handchecking, but it won’t make the viewership spike up....

Either way... 2002-2004 was a good era for the rules..... it had the strategy of zone defense but it was still a bit physical..... but keep in mind, after the hand checking rule was in place, Star player averages only went up by like 3 points..... if they bring back hand checking and players still averaging 30-40, it’s time to stfu and give them n*ggas their credit due for being great shooters

Never understood why people care about this stuff. Watch games you like. Unless you're a TV exec, why do people care about ratings?

The actual competition is garbage. It’s like a all star rookie game. You have guys just chucking up shots from all over the court with no defense. People thought a high scoring league would be great but it has backfired. It just doesn’t seem like anyone is actually trying to win with a strategy everyone is just shooting and not defending. James harden leading mvp voting should explain how this year is going.

NFL ratings were up for the year.
The super bowl started with an increase and declined because of the offensive disaster.

it matters if you care about the product

higher ratings = bigger TV deals = higher salary cap for teams = better chance your team has of attracting big talent



its all related

Except no.

Since max contracts are tied directly to the cap, higher salary cap doesn't increase any one team's chance of signing anyone great because payroll rises with the cap.

Unless you're hype to sign Ricky Rubio or some sh*t, this stuff doesn't matter.

Edit- and even if you are hype for Ricky, every team's cap goes up, so there's no advantage for any one team when that happens

Improve the quality of the product. Many casuals know all the drama but won't bother watching the games.

(also cord cutting / illegal streams )

It’s all about free agency. That’s all that matters. The young stars aren’t that exciting to watch.
That's true. They aren't compelling or interesting period. The previous generation had way more interesting personalities. Embiid and Giannis are the only interesting cats who don't seem to be on that team up bullsh*t(Giannis at least, he even refused to work out with lebron which I liked) and Joel talks hella trash.

There's nothing interesting about the current crop of superstars. They had everything made and handed to them and don't feel the need to be showmen. The lack of heart is also palpable across the league except in Westbrook.

As a lifelong dedicated student of the game of basketball, my only purpose now is to expose casuals who disrespect and know nothing about the game of basketball.

and yes 10:30 is early. The game would be over around 1 am. basically Just going to sleep a few hours later, so wake up a few hours later
Shut the entire fu*k up.

How dumb can you be to compare ratings of a league that plays once a week when majority of America is off from work to a league that has a game on national TV almost everyday when the games start at 4-5 on the west

This only works for unemployed losers such as yourself.

Talking about just wake up a few hours later. People will be late for work

You really are that fu*kin stupid.
the mindset of a lifelong loser

don't be mad because you chose a path in life to where you have no control over when you can go to sleep and wake up.

smarten up casual
