Goddamn you are stupid.

You seriously think the NBA can survive without white viewership and support? Do you have any idea of the number of black people in this country? You think they’ll be able to pay the huge salaries of players when their TV contracts are worth far less than now and the arenas can’t sell out?


You really think all white people share your opinions on this?

Probably a bunch of white owned businesses landing the contracts to paint them

But I’m discussing the brave hero’s in this thread who declare they don’t watch the NBA and will continue not to. Really making a difference for our country

I don't think he's suggesting all white people share a particular opinion.

I don't think it's a stretch to suggest that this is only going to lose viewers though. There will be a sizable number of casual views that will not support this decision and will not watch. It's not going to ruin the NBA, probably will barely make a dent. But it will be measurable. The NBA seems perfectly OK with that to show support for their players, so it is what it is.

Not quite a handful. Not that many people on this board care about the NBA. It’s the same 4-5 posters in all these threads and a few more that come in just to troll. Jordan was and still is much more of a player than Lebron

Be honest, how many white people do you know that really follow the NBA? Sure a fair amount of white people will tune in for the playoffs (if their city is in it) and Finals but very few white people follow the NBA regular season or buy significant amounts of NBA merchandise.


In a city where half the population is black, why aren't there more black people than white in this random nba game crowd in New Orleans? And these are the cheaper seats. I'd bet money there isn't an nba game played where there's more black fans than white. There's nothing cheap about nba games or merchandise, and their money comes from advertisers and tv's 60 million subscribers, not kids playing basketball at the city park.




Here's a Pacer's game. It's like playing where's waldo.


Same with the Jazz

New Orleans was 60% in 2010. Probably higher now, but still lower than I would’ve guessed.

And an amazing interview from Adam Silver today: Twitter

quote:

In @TIME interview released today (one day after Uighur genocide report & same day China carried out Hong Kong takeover), @NBA Commish Adam Silver said he understands China has "a different view of how things should be done" & "hopefully we can find mutual respect for eachother."


I'm sure in the 30s Henry Ford was saying other types of evil shite like this when asked about Germany's treatment of the Jews and other minorities. The NBA is an evil organization.
