Lots of factors involved in that. I would not use this season as a proper example of whats likely to come.

You have miami/ny/la/la playing every night - you had the nba trade paul to a major market, you had a ny sensation appear from nowhere.

It will die down...

So many story lines this year... the NBA hasn't been this fun to watch in awhile.

The only games I've watched this year have been Warriors games and maybe 5-6 national tv games, I've always watched games on wedensday, thursday and friday nights, but this year the NBA has been so terrible all I look at is the box scores.

The play all around the league has been pretty bad besides 8-10 teams which really played well. I'm pretty shocked that TV ratings are any where near being considered good.

New Jersey Nets YES 28,000
Washington Wizards CSN Mid-Atlantic 27,000
Memphis Grizzlies SportSouth 21,000
Milwaukee Bucks FS Wisconsin 15,000
Charlotte Bobcats SportSouth 13,000

That's for households per game.

Who's to say those teams aren't losing money?

There's like 8 teams that actually get money out there.

Which storylines are these?

CP3 going to a major market
Thunder emerging as the top team on the West
Resurgence of the Spurs
Dwight Howard trade speculation
Steady decline of the former powerhouses Lakers/Celtics
Up & Coming young teams like the Sixers/Pacers/Nuggets
Miami Heat gelling and destroying teams...

Plenty.

I think the people who don't understand why the league's ratings are so high are just in a market where the basketball teams haven't had any significant changes from last year.... or where their rival teams are making all the news... or people who can't appreciate the game of basketball from teams apart from their own. Just my 2c.

No offense Bobcat fans... but if that team was all I watched when it came to the NBA, I wouldn't really care much for NBA tv either this season.

No one cares about the spurs or nuggets or 76ers or pacers

We knew okc would be good no surprise here

The teams that you say no one cares about, are the big surprises. Their own markets care... and thus, have been buying tix and tuning in to watch... DUH

Everyone knows about Lin and the Knicks already, so there's no need to mention.

We knew OKC was good, but they are better this year and entertaining to watch. So an NBA fan would want to see the progress.

Anything else you wondering about, or can you only handle one story at one time?

Before it baffled me why people hated on a good story like Lin's, but then when you read idiotic comments from fans like you... it all makes sense.

There are bandwagon fans, and fans that can still appreciate the game.
