The NBA says you are a racist. Now, the ratings say you told the NBA you won’t watch their 2020 championship series. Good for you!!
The Black Lives Matter-soaked NBA Finals have now entered the record books as the worst rated series in NBA broadcast history… and not by just a little bit, either.
The Nielsen ratings company reported that the NBA Finals averaged a mere 7.45 million viewers over the six-game series, easily making it the least-watched Finals on record, Outkick reported Tuesday.
“The last time LeBron James played in the NBA Finals, in 2018 Cavs-Warriors, the games averaged 17.56 million viewers. This year represents a 57.6% drop from that,” Outkick added.
Hoo, boy, that’s a major drop!
Donald Trump took notice of Breitbart Sports’ reprot on how badly the NBA did this year:
Viewership for NBA Finals Finale Crash Nearly 70%, Beaten by Random Sunday Night Football Game https://t.co/RaDVRSE4ww via @BreitbartNews Maybe they were watching in China, but I doubt it. Zero interest!

One of the league’s biggest problems is that it spent the whole year telling every white fan that they were irredeemable, evil, racists.
Even NBA commissioner Adam Silver admitted that all the wokeness probably went too far. Early this month he promised that next year things would look a bit more like sports and not policies.
“I understand those people who are saying ‘I’m on your side, but I want to watch a basketball game,'” Silver said about next season.
“My sense is there’ll be somewhat a return to normalcy — that those messages will largely be left to be delivered off the floor,” he said.
