I mean, everyone has an opinion as to why it's declining. There are no facts as to "why", just that it's declining. But the the bottom line is...if people liked watching the NBA...they would be watching it. IMO, all of what we are discussing contributes to the decline. For me personally, I don't give a shit about them taking political stances. I stopped watching because the rules (both on and off the court) have made the on-court product unwatchable.Except they are losing ratings because of the social justice message. People are taking a stand against the NBA taking a stand. I am not trying to get political, but nowhere I have read or seen is it because of the game itself.
You are using a fact to prove a different opinion when the 2 are unrelated.
Also the new tv deals might triple, so lower viewership might not hurt the NBA.
Poll Shows 34% Watched Less Sports Over Social Justice MessagesThe poll, which was conducted by Yahoo News/YouGov, found 34.5 percent of respondents saying they have watched less sports due to social justice messaging, while 11 percent said they have watched more.www.newsweek.com
This NBA season has been a steaming pile of garbage no matter how you dice it.
And no way in hell are networks going to pay triple the current price for a sport nobody is watching.
