I can’t watch it. I have zero interest. I haven’t seen the ratings for game 3 but I know the first two games were way down.
The San Antonio Spurs’ lopsided victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, pitted against the series finale of “The Sopranos,” drew a 5.6 national rating and a 10 share on ABC on Sunday night. That’s down 30 percent from the 8.0/14 received by the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat in 2006.
The ratings for Game 1 fell 19 percent from last year.
How will the NBA respond to this? There are so many complaints out there such as:
- size of the court
- bad play in general
- bad officiating
- bad announcing
- playoffs are too long
- too many days off between games
Did I leave any out? I think it’s time for David Stern to go.
