NBA Ratings In Free Fall Since Going Woke Left
The biggest mistake professional sport has ever made was the decision to join leftist politics.
Most sports fans lean to the right and don’t want politics to be brought into the games they watch. You certainly don’t want to be taught.
Now the sport is paying the price, especially the NBA.

It’s time to take care of the NBA ratings
Even inflicted wounds are deliberately ignored until they can no longer be. For the NBA, that moment is getting closer and closer.
In the 2020/21 season, NBA games on ABC – the league’s main partner – have declined 45% since 2011/12. It’s just a little less damaging on cables. NBA shows on TNT were down 40% and on ESPN by 20%.
To keep up with newer trends, the last two NBA finals crashed into double-digit declines, with the most recent dropping 51% to a record low. Last season’s NBA for ABC games falls into the same category and has its lowest average (2.95 million) in history. According to Ethan Strauss of The Athletic, that record will be broken again this season.
“At some point it will be official: The NBA has once again lost the number of spectators at its ABC games after reaching the all-time low of last season,” writes Strauss. “Based on how this average declines over the course of the season (it starts highest after the Christmas Games bonanza), we can safely assume that the ABC Games will end at a level lower than last season . “
What will happen when players run out of money? That comes.
More than any other league, the NBA relies on a player or two to be the face of the league. Your ascents and descents depend on who that face is. Magic and Bird, League was good. Jordan, league was supernova. LeBron James, league nosedive. https://t.co/v0i0Psyt0I

Last season was an all-time rating for the NBA. Until this season. Which is worse. https://t.co/k0M64XN5vq

This was completely self-inflicted.
The NBA made a huge mistake.
