Despite near-daily efforts to show America how woke they are, or, because of it, the NBA’s playoff ratings are still tanking.

“Weekday afternoon games have certainly hurt, but the first weekend of the NBA Playoffs was no ratings bonanza either,” Sports Media Watch reported.

Viewership on ABC is down 23 percent and the numbers are down 20 percent overall compared to last year’s playoffs

“The Lakers’ win ranks as ABC’s least-watched playoff opener in five years (2015 Pelicans-Warriors: 3.49M), with the caveat that this year marked the first time since 2004 that it did not air a game on the opening day of the postseason,” Sports Media Watch added.

The league has tried to blame the coronavirus and its effects; however, SportsBusiness Daily recently noted that ratings for last season were also bad, as the 2018-2019 season lost 12 percent in viewership. That, of course, was pre-pandemic.

   I LIKE James Wood but using James Harden as a Poster Boy for the politicization of the NBA is Flat Wrong. 
   Harden is the epitome of the 'shut up and dribble' movement~Not Political AT ALL.

And he has the Best Beard in Sports.

But seriously, as far as there being mouth-runners threatening to quit pro basketball, when many of them gambled their whole livelihoods on making it to the NBA, it reminds me so much of those celebrities promising to move to Canada if Bush/Trump/etc. wins. They won't.

(For the record, Woods appears to have been duped. BustATroll.org is another entry in the infamous Christopher Blair hoax machine.)

And you would think with the dearth of live sports on TV, and people stuck at home, ratings should be much higher.
