NB Who?

The NBA has suffered another ratings disaster, with ABC falling 45 percent since the 2011-12 season, while TNT was down 40 percent, and ESPN was off 20 percent.

This ratings tumble is nothing new, granted. The past two NBA finals each have fallen one over the other, with last year’s down 51 percent to an all-time low for the championships. The worst was the final game, off nearly 70 percent year-over-year.

So far, the average viewership for the league’s games is only 2.83 million, according to The Athletic. For comparison, recent episodes of the NBC crime drama, The Blacklist, average about 3.3 million viewers, while one of ABC’s biggest shows, medical drama, The Good Doctor, averages just over four million per week. Historically, sports out earns any regular TV series.

The NBA’s collapse may not be surprising in light of recent polls finding that basketball fans feel that the league has become far too wrapped up in politics.

In September, a Harris poll found that 39 percent of respondents who identified as sports fans felt that the NBA had become too political, and 19 percent said that they had turned off pro basketball because of the NBA’s deep links to China.

In 2020, the NBA’s coronavirus season in the bubble launched with heavy-handed paeans to the anti-American Black Lives Matter agenda. But reactions to those displays of leftism may have alarmed NBC Commissioner Adam Silver because the league boss claimed that this season would dispense with the more overt displays of support for BLM.

“My sense is there’ll be somewhat a return to normalcy, that those messages will largely be left to be delivered off the floor. And, I understand those people who are saying, ‘I’m on your side, but I want to watch a basketball game,'” Silver said last October.

Still, if the ratings for the 2021 season are any indication, Silver’s realizations may have come too late.

James is the biggest hypocrite of them all. Specifically says he will always comment and/or be involved and lead with social justice.
Except when it comes to China of course. He's a big brave man to take a stand about America but won't say shit about China.
China has literally stuck it in the Biden Administrations ass.

The NBA went in the toilet when the star players all figured out that later in their career, they could just assembly 4 or 5 of the best in the league to create sort of an all-star team in one city and then run the tables.

The New York Yankees have been doing that for 90 years.

i'm against it because most of the players don't look like me and i don't feel like its a fair representation of the national fabric.

I’m a sports fan first and foremost, cuntface. Just because it’s being overrun with Eastern Europeans doesn’t impact my thoughts on the NBA

Why is it a valid argument for the other side though?
ALL liberals are racist/NAZIS. That's my starting point.

This thread is spot on. Haven't watched an NBA game (much less playoffs) in years. I gave it up back then way before all this PC, Woke BS. I quit because the league seemed more interested in showcasing things like dunks ("pounds chest, yells loudly")-congrats idiot, it's 2 points, than the almost total way they've allowed the fundamentals of the game to just melt away. Bouncing balls above the eyeballs. Running for a dunk 1-2-3 steps. You get the gist.
