these are professional athletes they don't need 4 months to recover! most of them get out of shape for months and use the preseason to get in shape. The reason why these guys burn out is because they're playing 3-4 games per weeks! They would benefit more if the season was longer and they play no back to backs games

It’s not bc of the nfl that the ratings are bad, it’s because of the sjw agenda that’s being forced down our throats

I think one thing that basketball faces that none of the other major pro sports do is that a large percentage of the people that watch basketball... play basketball. Even the 30 years out of college players like myself still play against our own level of competition. Nobody I know who is 50+ years old plays tackle football.... ever. Same goes for baseball. Yeah lots of guys and gals play softball, but that is only 'kinda' baseball. Hockey same deal. I miss basketball so much it hurts. I freely admit I limited my NBA watching 'in the bubble' because while I certainly appreciated and loved the play... it also was a reminder I don't get to play and I wasn't getting to coach and watch my own son play. I think the psychology there was impactful on those viewership numbers. How much so? Who knows... but I do know I watched fewer games and the level of play didn't change. In fact, without the crowd distraction so much we saw some of the most focused and intense defensive play I think I can recall for at least a couple of decades. Awesome stuff. Still hurt.

The reason the viewers were low is not because of the NFL. It’s because of all of the virtue signaling that the NBA had.

I think a big reason for loss of viewership across the board for professional sports was their stance on BLM. People were sick of lockdowns and wanted to use sports as an escape but pro sports forced SJW Marxist propaganda in our faces. I don't like that they support Marxist movements but they are free to form their own opinions. However, it's very hypocritical to stand for injustice in the US and ignore injustices elsewhere. China commits crimes against humanity but the NBA turns a blind eye because of profit. This was a big wake up call for a lot of people. My friends and I completely stopped watching sports all together and honestly, we aren't missing out on much. Adam Silver even said that the BLM style activism won't be happening in the 2020-21 season but it's too late. We've seen their true colors.

The NBA needs to look for global revenue stream. It is a very popular sports all over the world, in fact the second most popular sports. It has much more potential than the NFL. just need better execution in the management

This video is total garbage. This guy can't even bother to spend 2 seconds looking up meaningful stats. You can't mention 29 million finals viewers for MJ without mentioning that as soon as he retired the average dropped to 12 and never recovered.

I can't wait for the day people stop using tv ratings to prove points.. NO1 WATCHES TV ANYMORE!!!! To compare ratings from now to the 90s is just lazy. Everybody had a TV and cable back then and internet barely existed. Only people 40+ have a mandatory TV and cable subscription in their lives today and oh ya 40+ are the NFL biggest market.

Jordan didn't take time off to rest and recover. He was off to do other things or he was forced out for awhile if you believe the darker side of the story due to gambling issues.
David Starnes
Views might be saved a little if they go back to 80s/90s rules. Real defense. Not an overpaid shootout of a bunch of Nancy load management watchers. Today's basketball is shit.
David Starnes
Oh and get rid of the politics and all that noise. Play the game. Get competitive. Players need to play not kinda run things.

Its more than just covid that is making them lose money. Stop siding with looters and rioters or lose half your audience.

Turns out when people are told the game starts at 8 pm but they don't tip off until 830 pm and instead spend 30 minutes shoving BLM down your throat, no one really cares.

Lower viewership could have a lot to do with households cutting cable. Back when Jordon was around, cable subscriptions were higher.

Bro seriously these people need to stop making a meme out of Klay Thompson's injury. It's a cheap laugh at what could be the decline or ending of his career. You're all kinda fucked up for it tbh.

The teams that have gone so long without playing are actually at a disadvantage to me. 4+ months away from competitive basketball is actually negative and leads to rust and lack of conditioning.

A lot of it has to do with the league getting so political. No matter what you think of it, and I won't state my views here, but many, many people stopped watching because of the politics
J 2 days ago
Tired of celebrities in general. I think the NBA will have less viewership this coming season. They will continue to push politics in the NBA it’s only going to get worse. Lebron also hates a certain type of race. Well all really except one.
Nick Koorsen

The viewership dropping is simply because of politics being in NBA. All the conservatives that watched the NBA no longer watched because they thought they were being shamed and disrespected. I, a conservative, still watched because Ik that it wasn’t about politics, they simply were just asking for black social justice. Unfortunately a lot of conservatives took it to hard and went to football.

pretty simple... they didn't lose out b/c of scheduling... they lost out b/c of their bS nazi-liberal-brown-shirt liberal politics... and being scared of a "pandemic" with a 99% survival rate... they hopped on the nazi liberal bandwagon... and those millions and millions of middle class and upper middle class folks (of all races/ religions/ creeds) decided the NBA and it's mindless minion players do not deserve their time. They wanted to be outspoken politically... which is fine... but it cost them everything. Not this year... likely not next year... but in the near future... the NBA will be forced to slash teams and salaries... it will simply go bankrupt. And those millions and millions of folks will not care. Or.. they could have stood up together... decided to keep their politics to themselves (kind of like Jordon a/o Kobe) and there would have been slight drop-off; with greater money coming in the near future. You can't have both nazi-liberal outspoken politics and skyrocketing budgets... it's one or the other. They chose politics... therefore.. they will forever lose out on money. But those politics will cease to be relevant when literally no one is watching or buying their crap. Liberalism ruins everything... go ahead... find one example of liberalism making anything better... we will wait
