    I think the main reason of low viewership is due to the pandemic. But why would you compare the TV viewership of present nba to 1998 which TV was the main source of entertainment they dont have smartphones back in the day cmon yo

    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.
