That's why he NBA wants another Jordan. That's why everything I have seen about the finals has been all about lebron, except for the last 1/10th of the segment where they say Spurs will win.

"1998 BULLS VS JAZZ 18.7 "

Highest rating. Must be a whole lot of mormons.

"Highest rating. Must be a whole lot of mormons."

Or REAL basketball fans. The Jazz were fucking awesome, and that was a great series.

Suns/Bulls 93 was a better series IMO (And not just because Im a homer). But it did get 2nd best so I wont complain.

LOL@ this though

"The NBA Finals on ABC got off to a slow start Thursday, finishing behind both FOX and CBS in the ratings.

A "CSI" repeat, 6.8/11, gave CBS the lead in households at 9 p.m. FOX, however, had more total viewers with "So You Think You Can Dance," 6.7/11. Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the San Antonio Spurs and Cleveland Cavaliers drew a 5.3/9 for ABC. NBC aired reruns of "The Office and "Scrubs," while The CW got a 1.2/2 from "Supernatural."

A 5.3 even WITH the NBA marquee player LBJ?! Beaten by a CSI repeat and a bunch of douchebags dancing?!
