Well, business is bouncing back as LeBron James and the Lakers watch games from his couch. The ratings for the first round of the playoffs on ESPN are the highest the numbers have been since 2014, according to Darren Rovell. Rovell didn’t specify what the average viewership is for a game.

I’m certainly not an expert when it comes to TV ratings, but it’s clear the NBA is a better product when LeBron James isn’t associated with what’s going on.
LeBron James didn’t play in the Finals last season, and it was the most exciting championship series in a very long time.
NBA TV ratings are BOOMING with LeBron James NOT playing.
Fans hate LeBron because he refuses to stand up to China, pushes lies about police and has trashed this great country.

Now, he’s watching the 2022 playoffs from home and the ratings are booming on ESPN compared to recent years. At some point, you just have to point out the obvious and state that LeBron might not be needed as much as he thinks.
I guess that’s just what happens when you become a polarizing figure!
