I am watching the Discovery channel and they are advertising that The Deadliest Catch did better than the NBA playoffs LMAO if a major sport cannot get better ratings for their playoffs than a reality show they suck at life~

The NBA is headed for a Lockout of their own.

Head to head with a NFL playoff game which one gets better ratings? BTW I enjoy the Deadliest Catch show~

I'd rather watch Survivor than the NBA. They have obstacle courses.

That's not what I was getting at. It baffles me why Deadliest Catch is so popular.

Besides, NFL is National TV, not that I think that matters anymore. I watch National TV probably .0001% of the time offseason.

I have watched it and enjoyed it. The plot wears thin quickly and the year the captain of one of the ships died is the only time I watched regular~

Couple of things:

1. It's the first round. Even the most diehard NBA fans don't give a shit about Game 3 of Bulls/Pacers or even a premiere matchup like Thunder/Nuggets.

2. Like I said, there are at least four games per series. If each game was life or death like the NFL, I guarantee you'd see a different set of ratings. Not suggesting the NBA should go to that model, I'm just saying it would be a different story in terms of ratings. If a game 7 from this first round shows up alongside a popular cable show like Deadliest Catch, let's see how the ratings fare.

3. Comparing ANY non-football sport to the NFL is dumb. How did the MLB playoffs go? They probably sucked more than the NBA. I know Game 7 of the NHL finals got beat out by Build A Better Burger on Food Network years ago. Yet I don't ever see threads like "Har har... baseball and hockey suck. Football rulez!"

4. The "College basketball is real basketball crowd" (whoever/wherever you guys are) can suck on my penis. Not directed at you, RedNeckRaider. I'm just saying that.

As far as baseball and basketball I don't watch them at any level less going to a couple of semi pro Kinston Indian games last year~

First of all, Kewl thread dude! :thumb: This is actually one of the most entertaining and story filled NBA playoffs that I can remember. It's always fun when you have a changing of the guard. Elite teams like the Celtics and Lakers are starting to lose ground to young and exciting teams like the Bulls and Thunder.

Thunder Up Son!!

and the Thunder rolls...And that's sometimes the bitch of it all. Everybody said there were only a handful of teams that would roll through the series: Bulls, Lakers, Spurs. With the exception of the Spurs who haven't had a chance (they play Game 4 tonight) the previous two teams haven't closed up business. And obviously the Spurs are in deep enough doo-doo tonight as it is.

Meanwhile the Celtics just swept the Knicks. Those same Celtics who were weak, old, and just managed to limp out of the regular season. The Thunder are up 3-0 and could very possibly take the series tonight. Those are two teams that everybody thought would be in a dogfight for their lives in the first round, yet they could possibly (and probably will) be the first two teams to clinch spots in the second round.

And as a Thunder fan, I'm not sure if I want the Grizzlies or the Spurs in the second round. Either way, I think that series is going seven. So hopefully the Thunder can close tonight and get a little break.

You are right if I had a show it would most likely lose out to the Deadliest Catch also~
