To me it's because the game itself fukkin sucks. Everything is run and gun, jack up long a*s 3's early in the shot clock, no post play, no midrange and absolutely zero defense.

I know people started calling for the 3 point line to be moved back years ago when Steph changed the game but that's the only thing that can save the NBA right now from it's current massive downward spiral.

Make players have to start using midrange again, make post players relevant again, and make defense relevant again, instead of just seeing who can score 135 points quicker by jacking up 35 3's on better efficiency.

many things... No Warriors... as much people hated the Warriors it brought massive ratings and people wanted to see dominance, Issues with NBA League Pass with Xfinity and other tv companies...Load Management... Injuries... NBA not doing a good job replacing national tv games with injured NBA teams ie. Warriors, Pelicans etc... China... and finally those illegal streams... NBA League Pass is too expensive

Doesn't matter what 2 teams they show, ratings would still be down because the product sucks. There isn't one single matchup they could possibly show that would be must watch tv for Americans.

It’s just an awful product on the court right now. Zero physicality, centers are nonexistent. If they do play, they’re shooting 3’s instead of dominating inside like common sense would say to do. Not to mention, the lack of defense. I do believe there is more talent in the NBA. But they’ve made the game so easy to score, it’s horrible. Luka Doncic said it was harder to score and play overseas. Him saying that tells you all you need to know.

All anyone wants to do is shoot 3's. Doesn't matter how dumb of a shot it may be

You could've said that a year ago as well...

There's just no importance or intensity to these games.

Even if it's close, it doesn't feel like a f*ght.

I watch a few minutes and wander off to something else and then go back to the game in the final mins.

Playoffs should be good but this regular season sh*t? Nah

There's a direct correlation between great ratings and the Orlando Magic being in contention for a championship. Look it up.

-Lebron is old and not nearly as vilified but ESPN and other media outlets still cover him like its 2010-2011.
Warriors are dead
KD is hurt.
Zion williamson might not even play this year.
-Nobody outside of Houston likes James Harden's playstyle.
-the way people consume the game has changed. They watch youtube highlights and bootleg streams.
-The media has done a sh*t tier job of creating interest in players and teams outside of the same 15 they've been talking about forever.
-A lot of the best teams in the league only have like 8 nationally broadcasted games

No Curry

No Klay

Warriors last in West

China

Also alot of terrible primetime games

Edit - Obviously cable, less and less ppl using It to watch sports and NBA is only shown on tnt espn and local sports networks.

Streams is what it is now. If cable let u jus pay for certain channels maybe itd be worth it otherwise fk cable.
