    NBA and MLB TV ratings are out. Hint: It's bad.

    That's what happens when you turn sports into a BLM shitshow.

    https://www.breitbart.com/sports/202...Dethnj0dlVtDKQ

    As for the opening games, Outkick reported that the return of the NBA on TNT saw the following numbers:
    Lakers-Clippers: 3.4 million
    Pelicans-Jazz: 2.1 million

    ESPN’s MLB return numbers were also underwhelming:
    Yankees-Nationals: 4.0 million
    Dodgers-Giants: 2.8 million


    “To be fair since I compared MLB vs NBA return night 1, here is night 2,” (July 24) he wrote, adding:
    MLB (last Friday, ESPN)
    Mets-Braves (4p) – 922K
    Brewers-Cubs(7p) – 1.0M
    Angels-As (10p) – 797K

    NBA (last night ESPN) (July 31)
    Celtics-Bucks (6:30p) – 1.3M
    Mavs-Rockets (9p)- 1.7M

    Compared to 5.8 million people that watched Tom Brady and Tiger Woods play golf about a month ago.

    I think they need more black lives matter content to get those ratings up.

    NBA playoffs should generate a spike.

    Maybe throw in an ESPN 30 for 30 ten-part miniseries on Black Lives Matter for good measure.

    I used to be such a big fan of the NBA growing up. It felt like such a privilege to grow up in the 80's and watch such stars as Dr. J, Magic, Bird, Jordan, and Malone. The rivalries were real. The Celtics and Lakers respected, but despised each other. Everybody hated the Pistons, and they returned the favor. Chills would literally go down my spine when the playoffs came around and I heard the NBA CBS theme. Brent Musberger or Dick Stockton would give you the story and history of whatever series was going on while it played with many highlights showing.




    When the Rockets finally won an NBA Championship in 1994, I didn't talk to my wife for 3 days. Why? Because she wanted me to come to bed with 4 minutes left in Game 7 against the Knicks. She tried to lay down the law, and when I totally ignored her demands with my focus fixated on what was about to happen in NBA annals, a pillow and blanket were semi-violently thrown at me on the couch. I didn't care. What I had waited my entire childhood to happen, a championship for one of my Houston teams, was about to finally come to fruition as I watched Olajuwon dominating Ewing unmercifully. I could say that this moment might have been the start of the demise of the love in my marriage, but that's another story for another time.

    Why do I share all of this? That love is gone. I can't even push myself to watch a game now. It just looks fake. Guys are best friends after the game. You see high fives on missed free throws. Three point shots are thrown up with nobody underneath to rebound. I can say BLM has totally soured me on the game, and it has contributed to it, but it was really the final straw in a long developing problem that I really didn't realize until the pandemic. I'll study stats and make bets on the game, but my investment of time in their TV product is over. The 80's NBA was a long time ago, buried somewhere next to my patronage for the league.

    No one watches sports in early August. People are being busy on the beach infecting other people right now.

    More people will watch on day 1. The day 2 drop was dramatic once they realized how much BLM was being pushed (especially in the NBA).

    Well yanks and nats was the highest rated baseball game since 2011 but yet you’re skewed article says they were underwhelming. Keep pushing that agenda. I wonder how many people in this forum just believe what you post without looking into it deeper? It’s sad here
    You expect a Friday 4pm mlb game to draw huge numbers? Give me a break

    Pelicans game was double its average viewers for a regular season telecast. Inside the nba had its highest viewership since opening night of 2018-2019 season. And then lakers crush that mark.
    So they were never going to keep those numbers after day one because they were that high. Fu.ck man at least post some truths one time. Idiots on here will try to pray for anything so they can push their agenda. Retarded

    But what the OP is pushing isnt facts. At least the agenda the players are pushing have truth to it. OP says opening numbers arent good but yet when you look at it its exactly opposite of that. The numbers were great. If he wants to make a thread saying he hates BLM and he wont watch sports because of it fine, we can have another dlowilly on the forum. But dont take truths and spin them into lies.

    Okay let's say he is wrong. What agenda are rich players pushing? 10 black guys on a court that says black lives matter. Just think about that.

    They are pushing equality. Not sure why thats bad. Yes I understand they are rich and not the ones not be treated equal. But do you think a random black guy at a moderate income level would get heard more? I doubt it.

    This is all bullshit bro. There will always be some dumbass cop killing a person of all types of backgrounds.

    Most NBA players NEVER cared before Floyd. You think all of the sudden they woke up?
