So much more goin on in the world thats much more important then sports. The nba is no where near as good as it was in the 90s and early 2000's............ Way less dunks way less crossovers and people falling way less defense way more calls. way more travels and Carry's that are not called .... Alot of bad calls

It's not just covid. It's the political stance of painting black lives matter on the courts and all the players supporting BLM that turned people off.

Kyrie: toxic and insane, KD: insane, James Harden: toxic..... so basically that’s double the insanity and toxicity and if those 3 players combine then they will not be good

And Jordan didn't retire to take a break from "playing too much".... When he played, he played nearly every game. Did you hit some rock before making this video?

Competing with the NFL is not the reason why nobody is watching.. Has a lot more to do with moving their games to paid television channels and being too political.

Well, I guess WNBA should be really complaining about their check, thats full on money made by LeBron, Donćić, Lillard, Westbrook etc

The average of the 1998 game was 25.666... not 29 million. That is, if you're going by these six games, and there wasn't a game 7 that 49 million people watched. But yeah, the difference in viewership is striking regardless.

I love basketball but honestly it’s so boring to watch now. I was praying Miami would upset the Lakers just to have something interesting to watch.
Where’s the joy gone? It’s all overexcited young men with too much money. I don’t blame them; but it seems to me the money really effects the focus on winning mentality and focus on the game.
Let’s all just jump on the one best team and ride into the finals. LeBron is a hugely talented player but so dull to watch.
BLM? Vote? Yeah sure but can we maybe just play basketball for a while? No. Apparently not.

The video didn’t age well with Kay Thompson. Also, you focusing on the 10 weeks on off time for playoffs teams like that’s not plenty of time to recover. Those teams will be fine.
CodyOsteen5 - 8 hours ago
Jordan retired to go play baseball. Wasn’t like he was sitting on a beach getting fat for a year and a half. Lebron going to cherry pick first half of season? He has been load managing his entire career. MJ hardly missed a game through tour his career. No comparison.

It’s hilarious people think that the nfl is the reason why the nba had god awful numbers but ignore the fact that most of the finals games weren’t played head to head with the nfl.

Dude if you add all viewers across the globe during 11th Oct games, I think NBA still has more viewers right? NFL is not popular like in Asia unlike basketball and soccer..

NBA ratings are down because the stars are bringing politics into it. People watch sports to get away from politics. And the NBA’s man in star (LBJ) can't keep his mouth shut smh
BruceReeee - 14 hours ago
doesnt help that a lot of people are just done with all the political bs that the players are constantly puking out.

It wasn't Covid that lost the NBA 1.5 Billion. It was their BLM shit that a lot of people don't care to see. People wanna watch sports to get away from all that stuff, only to have it shoved down their throats more, especially when the cause they argue is statistically false.

Most of the NBA's 2019-2020 revenue were from sales of Kobe merchandise.

Lebron (and everyone else who was part of the NBA restart) had a 4 month break during covid, and the offseason between the 2020 finals and the start of the 2020-2021 season is the same length as the offseason in any normal year. They need to quit bitching and just go earn their money.

If they halved the price of league pass I would buy it... at the moment I stream it illegally but if it had a somewhat decent price I would buy it, at the moment the price is just way too high...

You really passed over the 98 Finals ratings. Interesting. Considering there was just a documentary that discussed it. Comparing that to anything today is what it is. There are 0 professional athletes that controlled America like Jordan did in 98.

The viewing figures from years ago was when people were limited to what to watch on network TV. Now we have instant on demand highlights minutes after the game ends, so it's not really a fair comparison

LeBron is a whiny loser too. He had the whole pre-bubble time off and he doesn't try in the regular season anyway. All he does is make excuses for his trash, egotistical attitude, and it's ruined the league. That's why Harden thinks he can backstab Houston, because LeChoke made fans the least important part of the league.

Not watching the NBA until LeBron is gone. Not interested in another year of rigged garbage and lecturing from Chinese billionaires.

i don’t understand the problem with the league starting in late’s their job to play basketball and they’re under contract to play (hold outs are bullshit btw) and 72 days seems, to me an outsider, like plenty of time, especially considering i’d imagine that nba players enjoy playing basketball. so i really don’t see the problem. personally i’d rather go 72 days without playing competitive professional basketball than over 200 days

They're struggling because Adam Silver has worked with LeFraud to go out of their way to completely destroy the League. I have no sympathy for those commie clowns

Too bad he just tore his Achilles, it really makes me sad and drops the warriors chances of winning the chip. And poor Klay just sat out a whole season and now has to sit out another.

i think the reason why views are going down is because of steaming services, you have to pay a bunch of money just to get the right combination of streaming services to watch all the nba games you want and fans really don’t like that

The NBA isn't losing the 4 billion, it's just not making it. So imagine not making 4 billion and still being a billionaire. Only problem is that financially poor workers will have to find jobs elsewhere.

yeah because the problem is nba has more international fans but we cannot watch games at 3 am at midnight so although they don't get as many viewers they actually have more fans

views were way down for the finals because everyone knew the lakers were going to win with no doubt. I deff didnt care to watch the finals at all this year.
