NBA players take a knee during National Anthem, screen image
Get woke, go broke.
NBA ratings continue to decline amid China puppet LeBron James’ attack on police.
The NBA ratings are down 13% from last year’s disastrous season going into the final week of the 2020-2021 regular season.
The NBA ratings are worse than we thought last month when we found out they were worse than we thought. Headed into the final week of the 2020-21 season, the NBA has averaged 1.4 million viewers across ESPN, ABC, and TNT, down 13% from last year’s disastrous COVID-interrupted, bubble season.
NBA defenders — at ESPN, Bleacher Report, USA Today and every other sports media outlet — are running out of excuses. “It’s the bubble,” they yelled last year when the ratings tanked. Make no mistake, the NBA’s declines have undoubtedly reached headquarters. Coming into the 2020-21 season, NBA games on ABC — the league’s most prominent broadcast partner — were down 45% since 2011-12. Yes, 45%. Within that same time frame, NBA broadcasts on TNT were down 40%, and ESPN was down 20%.
Americans are fed up with politics in sports.
Apparently overpaid spoiled athletes kneeling during the National Anthem while shoving Marxism down their fans throats isn’t a successful strategy.
