    It's not "summer olympics", it's just "the olympics" or "the olympic games". Básically no one living out of snowing countries cares about the winter olympics, which by the way can't compare in terms of both history and legacy.

    The reason nba ratings are down is because the nba isn’t competitive anymore. We all know Lebron a team costs to the championship every year. It’s also boring to watch the style of play they play now. No one wants to watch dudes chuck up 3’s and miss 70% of them. I could watch that at the park for free. The nfl on the other hand is exciting and competitive. Anyone can win unlike the nba..

    They lost a lot of their viewers when the league went political with BLM and the like. It’s no coincidence that we’re all stuck at home and yet this is their worst year in terms of viewers. If they want to keep viewers, they need to remain neutral as a league. If players want to speak out and say what they want, let them. But when the league, from the bottom to the very top, hops on the train, that’s when people leave. People just want to watch basketball, leave that other stuff out of it

Worse case scenario is the Nets become so good that the league becomes unwatchable. Best case scenario, the Nets have no chemistry and suck, and they become a meme.

    The energy of the crowd for NBA games has a more intimate impact through the TV. Without it, it felt like watching games being played in a gym. It'll take a while before people get used to that. The NFL games were played in their own arenas around the country and still looks larger than life on TV.

    It really is a shame about Clay since i do think it's going to have a very big impact. It's hard to say how good the Warriors were going to be but for me it was going to be must watch TV to see if Curry/Clay were going to be able to carry that roster anywhere. I'm a Bucks fan tho so i still have a lot of reasons to watch.

    Not that shortening the season sounds tremendous, but if they dropped to 62 games with a healthy roster in every game, people might respect it more. They are the only major sports network to not make their content easy to find. I think the ratings are harder to track due to this. The game seems fine to me though, they're obviously making a lot more money.

    The reason ratings suck is because people don’t watch cable as much anymore and the poor implementation to live streams. You’d think someone could just go to the nba, pay a subscription and without a hitch see all games. Nope. You gotta have a cbs, nbc, ESPN, fox, and nba subscription and there’ll still be blackout dates. Nobody has time for that kind of crap.

    can't ignore the politicization of sports. people aren't tuning in because watching espn, the nfl, the nba, etc... is just a different source to discuss all the turmoil in the world. i used to watch espn all day everyday. it was constantly on in the background. now i don't have a cable subscription or any social media... because all they do is bombard me with political messages. at some point i'm trying to escape all the horrible shit in the world and watch some sports... but now the sports and the news all cover and talk about the same stuff. no breonna taylor and george floyd didn't deserve to die. yes i support systemic changes which will result in equal treament and opportunity. no i don't want to hear non stop espn anchors talking about it all. no i don't want my escapist moments to watch sports to become a fox, msnbc, cnn, news report going over the horror of my country and world. I get enough of that in the moments i'm not watching sports. at this point, i literally don't watch sports or coverage any more. i just google results.

    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

    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.

    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.
