The NBA is throwing up bricks in national TV ratings over the first quarter of the regular season. A combination of big stars being absent from national telecasts, a marquee team mostly missing from the league's two biggest broadcast partners and the fall of a recent dynasty have all factored into the drop. But there's still time for the league to find its touch.
The NBA isn’t surprised its TV ratings are way down. Radical change was already afoot. https://t.co/XoCylWBTCy— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) December 25, 2019
@BreitbartNews I am surprised that Warner Huston’s article, “NBA’s Ratings Crash Ahead Of Christmas Showcase,” did not mention a most probable cause: the China/NBA debacle! Huston was negligent, but the responsibility falls on the editors! Did they forget?— Chris Sewell - Tuscaloosa (@ChrisTuscaloosa) December 24, 2019
@NBAonTNT...you want know why NBA TV ratings are in the tank? It’s because when they started sucking up to and taking orders from China; many Americans tuned you out because it was obvious to us that money was more important to the NBA than free speech, Democracy and Liberty— Lance McKinney (@LanceMcKinney18) December 25, 2019
