The NBA suffered horrific ratings Sunday night for game three of the Finals between the Lakers and the Heat.

According to ShowBuzzDaily.com, the game averaged 4.395 million viewers at its highest point of the night on ABC as the Heat won the matchup against LeBron James and Los Angeles. Game two previous set a record low for the NBA Finals with an average of 4.5 million viewers. Game one also previously hit a record low.

Now, game three has taken the crown! Not only were the ratings atrocious, but the Eagles playing the 49ers averaged more than 12.4 million viewers at its highest point!

What an absolute nightmare for the NBA. How much worse can the ratings get? With every single game that passes in the NBA finals, a new record is set.

At this point, you really have to wonder how much NBA officials are panicking.

Not only did the NBA Finals tank Sunday night, but they were absolutely crushed by the NFL. I’m talking about getting obliterated.

As I’ve said before, we might never know all the reasons for the ratings being in the gutter, but I promise you some people have turned games off because things have simply gotten way too political.

It’s no longer just about winning and losing. Everything has to be about lecturing the audience! LeBron James and the league have gone woke, and people aren’t impressed at all.

There are at least two more games to be played. I can’t wait to see how much more the ratings tank!
