    It's not the NBA generating that revenue. The ratings matter to the NBA but it matters more to the individual channel that bought rights to broadcast which ever game to which ever market. They recoup the cost of rights by ad revenues mainly dictated by interest(ratings numbers and demographic).
    Yes, but good ratings should theoretically equal more money from tsn and sportsnet down the line. Which should factor in.

    This is what I don't understand. Ratings are always just one side of the border or the other, and usually just for one network (like TNT). The NBA is generating revenue from all broadcasts. Why is there no summary to that effect?

    Ratings are used for advertising purposes. The cost of commercials, that is. The companies that buy advertising are different between the US and Canada. A US rating means nothing to a Canadian company & vice versa. Even when it's basically the same corporation, like say Ford, there'll be different divisions, under different tax laws, and all that.

    The Dallas Cowboys always get irrationally high ratings.

    A great Knicks - Bucks game today. 🤗

    Your sarcasm is a BIG FAIL. If I am a conspiracy theorist, why would I pick the Knicks to prove my point. That’s why I mentioned the Sixers/ Bucks and Celtics over a poor ratings magnet Raptors.
    Don't think Bucks would help ratings much, even with Giannis. There is no conspiracy is what I'm saying.

    What about Xmas games
    That goes to my point. Xmas games aren't a conspiracy, they are a choice. And no matter how shitty the Knicks are - and they are shitty more often than not, networks schedule the Knicks at Christmas because even a shitty Knicks team brings ratings.

    To be fair, Saints and Cowboys was the most anticipated game of the season for Football.

    Also, Bay Area was blacked out of the TNT coverage...thats gotta be 300-500k there as well of people lost to the local Warriors TV channel.

    And the late game was the last watched of the year as well so overall everything tanked
    Hopefully this valid excuse will stick in Silver’s eyes

    Yup, there is a conspiracy to ensure ratings. That's why the Knicks are in the finals every year.

    Ouch....Adam Silver will not be happy.

    Talking heads were all over yapping about the game but its all about making money and the bottomline.

    Bucks/ Sixers/ Celtics vs. Warriors but not the Raps in the finals. Now the conspiracy thinking in me is fearful that the NBA will try their hardest to avoid a Raps vs. Warriors finals appearance.

    Ugh
