I'm probably the only person in the world who prefers both the NBA and MLB to the NFL. I follow both, though probably baseball more closely. You can make an argument that either is No. 2 to the NFL.
Baseball isn't dying. NBA Finals ratings have been significantly higher in recent years than World Series ratings, which is what people like to harp on, but that's explained by the fact that LeBron's Heat or the Lakers have been involved every year since 2008. Meanwhile teams like the Rangers, Cards, Tigers and Giants have been in the Series over the Yankees, Sox and Dodgers. It's cyclical.
