    Lots of valid arguments here but the next NBA deal will be bigger than the current one. There are just so many games and it is super hard to get a captive audience on any media vehicle other than digital and maybe social. Advertisers will pay a premium on even a smaller captive audience if necessary.

    Ratings might be down today and have regressed over time but thatís probably a larger conversation on product/fragmentation/content availability, meaning there are so many other things now available to the consumer. Push vs Pull.

    In the past content/messages were pushed out and you had very little choice on what you watched/were consuming. Now you can pull down personalized content such as Netflix, most media apps, Amazon prime, ESPN +, etc, etc... all that said, advertisers are still paying a hefty premium for the current NBA product. Not saying they should, just saying itís a reality.

    I watched the entire NHL game last night. Great hard fought game. I watched the entire England vs denmark game. Great game as well. The nba just isn't a good product for the most part.

    No doubt

    Anytime you mix politics and sports it's a bad idea

    Sure the guys can go on their platforms and speak their minds

    But sports are supposed to be the great unifyer.

    Regardless of race or economic class or any of that stuff.

    Ratings might be down today and have regressed over time but that’s probably a larger conversation on product/fragmentation/content availability, meaning there are so many other things now available to the consumer. Push vs Pull.

    In the past content/messages were pushed out and you had very little choice on what you watched/were consuming.

    Even the jerseys now in the nba are getting the ads for companies, which was never the case. So yeah they will definitely make up for it elsewhere. If they did have Durant vs. Lebron in the finals, ratings would be very high.

    Been arguing about Godduke with that. NBA I don't think cares about Vegas. They care about the NBA. If the league were rigged, we would have seen Kobe and Chris Paul vs. Lebron and Wade 4 straight years, leading to the best 4 year stretch in revenue for the nba in history. That didn't happen, so how rigged can it be. Not possible imo.

    I didnít watch any of game 1, but will try to stay up for game 2. The Finals are good tv with CP3/Giannis, but not ďmust seeĒ tv without its uber super megastars LBJ, KD, Harden, Steph, etc. It probably will never be must see tv anymore until they get another crossover star like Steph.

    That's nothing. One if the head honchos around here says stuff like "1/4 the black guys in league gay now that is an issue too. Plus everyone tired of pussy blacks crying foul all the time. Nobody wants politics in sports" for years and no one says one peep about him. They just shrug it off.

    The US corporation has been dissolved. Trump and the boys took it out. You have no idea what went on. The PM of Canada right now is an asian lady who is about 5 foot tall. News media tells you Trudeau is PM of Canada. He isn't. She is. https://www.bitchute.com/video/oY29RSEvT7in/

    Same goes with Biden. He's been dead over a year now but they tell you he is president. This is likely the last nba finals in history.

    someday soon when you find out what people used to do for fame and fortune you will realize something. Thats assuming you dont have a covid jab in you. Because if so you won't live to see the NBA and all major pro sports league free world.

    I don't care what trump did, I don't care about the prime minister of Canada, I don't care about Biden. I don't care about any of that.

    You said the NBA won't exist in two years. You made a weird statement, that will obviously be 100% false, and then when you discover that it is false, then what happens to your theory? THAT DISSOVLES.
