    A lot of it has to do with the league getting so political. No matter what you think of it, and I won't state my views here, but many, many people stopped watching because of the politics

    Tired of celebrities in general. I think the NBA will have less viewership this coming season. They will continue to push politics in the NBA it’s only going to get worse. Lebron also hates a certain type of race. Well all really except one.

    The viewership dropping is simply because of politics being in NBA. All the conservatives that watched the NBA no longer watched because they thought they were being shamed and disrespected. I, a conservative, still watched because Ik that it wasn’t about politics, they simply were just asking for black social justice. Unfortunately a lot of conservatives took it to hard and went to football.

    pretty simple... they didn't lose out b/c of scheduling... they lost out b/c of their bS nazi-liberal-brown-shirt liberal politics... and being scared of a "pandemic" with a 99% survival rate... they hopped on the nazi liberal bandwagon... and those millions and millions of middle class and upper middle class folks (of all races/ religions/ creeds) decided the NBA and it's mindless minion players do not deserve their time. They wanted to be outspoken politically... which is fine... but it cost them everything. Not this year... likely not next year... but in the near future... the NBA will be forced to slash teams and salaries... it will simply go bankrupt. And those millions and millions of folks will not care. Or.. they could have stood up together... decided to keep their politics to themselves (kind of like Jordon a/o Kobe) and there would have been slight drop-off; with greater money coming in the near future. You can't have both nazi-liberal outspoken politics and skyrocketing budgets... it's one or the other. They chose politics... therefore.. they will forever lose out on money. But those politics will cease to be relevant when literally no one is watching or buying their crap. Liberalism ruins everything... go ahead... find one example of liberalism making anything better... we will wait

    NBA might not get as many viewers as the NFL but that's just in the US. People around the world watch NBA more times than NFL. Out of 10 people, I'd say 8 or 9 people are more interested in the NBA than NFL. But I also do think that more people watch NBA on illegal streams than the NFl as well

    I love basketball but honestly it’s so boring to watch now. I was praying Miami would upset the Lakers just to have something interesting to watch. Where’s the joy gone? It’s all overexcited young men with too much money. I don’t blame them; but it seems to me the money really effects the focus on winning mentality and focus on the game. Let’s all just jump on the one best team and ride into the finals. LeBron is a hugely talented player but so dull to watch. BLM? Vote? Yeah sure but can we maybe just play basketball for a while? No. Apparently not.

    Jordan retired to go play baseball. Wasn’t like he was sitting on a beach getting fat for a year and a half. Lebron going to cherry pick first half of season? He has been load managing his entire career. MJ hardly missed a game through tour his career. No comparison.
