7.9


The King could only pull a 7.9....lowest rated game 1 of the NBA Finals EVER....damn, either the spurs are like kryptonite to viewers or the NBA is in decline.

Or maybe they should just pencil in the Lakers by default next year...damn.

The Spurs are boring.

We prefer the term "fundamental"  ;)

If it wasn't for LeBron, ratings would've been below 7.

Well if thats the case, this wouldn't have been the worst opening for the Finals ever. The Spurs have won 4 titles in the past 9 years, so if the Spurs were the problem, wouldn't one of those Final series have been the worst ever? Not to mention, the way Lebron shot in Game 1, he can't even save his own team, let alone the ratings.

Dude, that was no comment on the game itself.

People want to see LeBron.  Nobody but you wants to see the Spurs.  Nobody wants to see the rest of the Cavs, either. 

The reason people don't want to see the Spurs is precisely because they had to suffer them three times previously.  Case dismissed, clown.

Nah.  I still think Duncan would've dominated -- he's got so many facets to his game, he would've adapted.  I agree with the rest, though.

All jokes aside, I don't get the boring thing. I love NBA basketball as a whole more than I like the Spurs. That said, I know the Spurs aren't the most exciting team in the league, but who really is? Besides the Suns and maybe the Warriors on good nights, there are no exciting teams. There are exciting players (James, Kobe, Carter, McGrady, Arenas etc.) but there's really no team that is exciting. Even if you feel so, it can be personal opinion. Some might find 3 pointers exciting, whereas someone else is excited by crisp passes. Who's to say?

And to all the people saying how grimy and dirty the Spurs are, wise up. It's called defense, something the NBA has been forgetting about lately. And in the end, don't blame the Spurs for getting away with calls. Isn't that what the refs are paid for? Blame them.

Duncan's basketball intelligence dictates that he would've found something that works.

Defensively, I see him getting beat on more, but still being very effective.  And he would've been a good rebounder even as a center.
