I might switch Thunder/Heat with Mavericks/Heat because of the Durant factor, but other than that, I think this is on the money.

Mavs-Heat would have crazy-better ratings than Thunder-Heat. Rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals, plus Dallas is a much bigger market.

Err, Knicks being in the finals would have been the BIGGEST draw for the east.

I guess the Lakers on the other side.

So,

Knicks vs Lakers would have been the biggest ratings draw for the finals.

1 - Knicks vs Lakers
2 - Heat vs Lakers
3 - Celtics vs Lakers
4 - Bulls vs Lakers
5 - Heat vs Mavs

Technically, I think the biggest draws would be against the lakers. If the Lakers don't make it, then a Heat vs Mavs would draw a lot.

Your question on the title really doesn't say if you're talking about the remaining teams, though.

I would think Bulls vs Lakers, the biggest two markets left in the playoffs.

Hard not to go Lakers Celtics #1 though I guess the novelty is getting old. #1 is a very close race between Lakers/Celtics and Lakers/Heat.

LOL, why would Mavs-Heat get better than Bulls-Lakers? Bulls-Lakers includes 2 teams with bigger markets than the Mavs or Heat, not to mention it would be Phil going against his old team, trying to match his ring total with the Bulls.

Rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals? Dirk gets a chance to win his first ring? Dallas is a huge market as well?

I don't think Lakers vs Celtics would rank that high, I highly doubt expect those fan bases would even watch that again now.

Lakers Bulls would be bigger than Mavs Heat. Easily.

Lakers-Bulls. 2 of the 3 biggest cities in the US, Historic franchises, The reigning champs vs the MVP and Coach of the year. Doesn't get better than that. But I guess Miami vs LA for the whole good vs evil theme, or Boston and LA for the heated rivalry would be a bigger deal.

The Lakers would most likely have been most hated before this season. Maybe Old Evil vs New Evil.

Don't know the top 5, but I don't see anything topping bulls/lakers in terms of ratings. Those are the 2 largest markets left in the playoffs.

Being a Bulls fan my ratings will drop significantly (wont watch at all) if they get eliminated; however i was talking to a buddy today and we agreed that any finals with the Heat in it will have huge ratings because America wants to see them fail, and everyone wants to be watching when they lose so they can talk about it around the water cooler. Myself included.

That said

I'll be watching no matter what, I could care less what would be the highest ratings. What's the difference to me if the NBA makes some more money?

Mavs vs Celtics would be a good one.
