The Milwaukee Bucks beating the Phoenix Suns 120-100 Sunday night didn’t get great ratings.

According to ProgramInsider.com, the Bucks beating the Suns in game three of the NBA Finals averaged 6.34 million viewers on ABC in the early data. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It’s important to note the final number will rise once all the data rolls in, but it’s still not impressive.

The wildest part about this situation is that the ratings for game two of the NBA Finals last week were up 41% over game two in 2020 when LeBron James and the Lakers played the Heat.

Yes, the ratings are up through the first two games, and the numbers are still absolute garbage. It just goes to show how bad things were last season.

I’ve said it too many times to count at this point, and I’ll say it again. The NBA destroyed itself by going woke, and people have just quit watching.

The ratings are laughable when compared to college football, the NFL or the NBA’s ratings just a few years ago.

The NBA should get used to having much lower numbers than the league did just a few years ago. It’s a bloodbath and there’s no end in sight. It’s truly shocking just how far and fast the league has fallen off a cliff.
