So far in the NBA Finals, the Lakers have led the Heat 3-1 and successfully won the championship point. They are only one victory away before they can reach the top. Although the resilient Heat still have a chance, they are obviously not favored by the outside world. It’s fatal to get a match point without even 2-1 behind. The ratings for the first four games of the NBA Finals are now released. The ratings for the U.S. are: G1: 7.41 million, G2: 4.5 million, G3: 4.08 million, G4: 7.54 million, a total of 23.53 million; as for G2 previously reported by the media The viewership rate is 1.7 million, not the entire United States, but the viewership rate of a single broadcast platform.
The ratings of the first four games of the NBA Finals were 23.53 million, which is also the lowest in the history of the Finals since statistics. This data is not as good as the ratings of the 2016 finals. You must know that in 2016, James and Iguodala also participated in the finals G7. The Cavaliers successfully turned the Warriors' game and the nation’s ratings reached 31 million. Even with this data, it is not the first in NBA history. The highest ratings in NBA history was the 1998 NBA Finals G6. Jordan played in the Bulls’ curtain call, and the nation’s ratings were 37.8 million.
Even without comparing these high-profile games, the Warriors and Rockets' tiebreaker in 2015 also had more than 23 million viewership ratings, which was the same as the first four games of this year's finals. In the 2011 NBA Finals, James led the team against the Mavericks, and the ratings of a single game also exceeded the first four games of today's finals.
If you talk about the ratings of a single game, the first four games of this year’s finals, according to the ratings, are the four worst games in the history of the NBA Finals, such as the Cavaliers, the Spurs, the Spurs, and the Nets. Or there is no suspense, or the finals with boring competition, the ratings are even lower.
So from these data, it can be seen that the ratings of this year’s finals are the lowest in history. Of course, we have studied the reasons. The time was October, and other major North American races crashed, and the public’s attention was more in life. And not the NBA, etc., are all the reasons for the low ratings of this year's Finals.
However, in the next finals in G5, the Lakers have determined to wear the black Mamba jersey of Kobe and Jaina elements. Under such circumstances, with the blessing of Kobe attributes, James is very likely to win the first championship in the West. Brother Nongmei, Howard and others realize their dream championships, a series of highlights, may make the ratings of the finals G5 usher in an explosion.
