Nope he's right, had to make sure for the sake of arguement. Actually, if you look at wehn games are played it would make more sence to all of you all.
Baseball has the worst timing because half of there games are played when people are at school or work so if you are retired it's pretty easy to catch a game. NBA games are usually at night and in a Downtown area that are usually full of younger people. As for the NHL...i kind of want to believe that since it's not a sport you find everywhere the numbers would be funny and Nascar....I couldn't tell you.

I always thought this.

NBA had the youngest fans and MLB had the oldest.

All they did was take a survey of 2,000 or so people and used those numbers.

It wasn't like that for me.

I liked Baseball, then Football, and Basketball lasted.


I remember when Bulls games would come on WGN and I'd be like "Why everybody like this guy?".

I was lost when it came to Air Jordans too..... "$150 for some shoes?"

lmao wtf is wrong with you n*ggas.

median is the middle point in a set of numbers
average is when you add them all up and divide

median example: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 <- the median is 5 (5 is middle point when you arrange the numbers in order)
average example: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 <- average is 4.5 (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10/10)

So would you feel better if they said avarage then? You know what they mean but you want to argue that one word?? Ok your smart because you pointed out the writer used the wrong word. Yay! would someone please get this man a cookie?

and just for you via wikipedia

Medians in descriptive statisticsThe median is used primarily for skewed distributions, which it summarizes differently than the arithmetic mean. Consider the multiset { 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 14 }. The median is 2 in this case, as is the mode, and it might be seen as a better indication of central tendency than the arithmetic mean of 4.

Calculation of medians is a popular technique in summary statistics and summarizing statistical data, since it is simple to understand and easy to calculate, while also giving a measure that is more robust in the presence of outlier values than is the mean.

Nobody says you have to like football more than basketball once you get older. It really comes down to personal tastes. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with being grown ups or not. Case in point, both my dad (60 years old) and my granddad (90 years old) are still basketball fans first and foremost and have been watching the NBA since like forever. Lets face it, some people like whatever sport they want to like. So saying "I do not know how a grown men likes basketball more than football" is ridiculous. To me, basketball is a great, exciting sport so anyone can enjoy it, regardless of age. If some people don't like or are more into other sports it's fine, it's not for everyone, but saying "I do not know how a grown men likes basketball more than football" is ridiculous. If you understood the game, its intricancies etc. you probably would enjoy it more, regardless of age.
Besides, the article says the median age for the NBA is 39.3..and 39 years old is not exactly a little kid.

I am not sure how the NBA is marketed in the states but up here in Canada its marketed to be more family orientated similar to how the WWE is marketed. When I watch an NBA game I barley see bear adds compared to NHL and NFL games.

If NBA was more marketed to middle age men then Stern would allow the game to be alot more physical and ez off with the BS reffing. Thats the way to attract the older audience.
all of the sports leagues, businesses etc. prefer to market their product to younger people since that's what advertisers are more interested in..and young fans are the next generation of fans. Many young fans ensure a business to be successful for a long time.
By the way, I see lots of beer ads when watching the NBA.

and basketball fans = fans of the sport (would watch/play/attend basketball even it wasnt nationally televised/popular)

nba fans=fans of the league and its stars. probably only watch the "popular" teams and superstar players and could care less about the sport until marchmadness and playoffs
If NBA fans could care a less about the sport until the playoffs then they wouldn't be NBA fans to begin with. You're talking about casual fans now, not the true fans like myself. I'm an NBA fan and I follow it since the preseason till the draft, regardless of how good or bad my team/favorite players are doing.
