it was the debut right?
XFL debut did numbers too lol.
"B-B-But Football is dying!!!!! "
GOAT sport tho
"B..b..b..but the NBA dominates headlines. Headlines are the only thing that matter"
AAF didn’t have anywhere near the hype of the XFL
And thecoli told me the NBA pulled on the hype away from the Super Bowl
The NBA game was looking like a blowout, I changed the channel too. Didn't think OKC was gonna come back.
breh i can spin this many ways.
nobody wanna watch james harden play basketball. his style is not aesthetically pleasing.
maybe they wanted to watch AAF because the NFL left a disgusting taste in their mouths after that horrible super bowl.
either way let's see if they keep it up. i like competition for the no fun league.
@Captain_Crunch This yo league?
XFL was a joke, this league is actually going to be successful.
One of the AAF games was a blowout and the other was low scoring.
AAF can hold us over until NFL Free Agency, March Madness, and the NFL draft.
This time of year is a drought with sports. NBA just ain't doing it and my Nuggets are in 2nd.
The NFL paying you for this?
Gotta say the 2016 season was probably the last NBA season that had my full attention. Actually enjoyed the way the Warriors played when Curry was the #1 go-to guy. Now that they added KD and Cousins it's like why bother even watching anymore.
You can spin it all you want. Obviously yes, the AAF likely won’t maintain the numbers when the “debut hype”’dies down, but there’s still no way NBA should be getting beat by a second rate football league in prime time. There’s no way. And blame Harden’s game all you want but he and Westbrook are two of the top 5 marketable stars in the NBA. So if the NBA stans are gonna come in here and say LeBron is the needle that moves the thread then that’s a damn problem that the league is focused on one star being their be all end all.
I always say, yeah the NBA is great worldwide and yeah their headlines and off court news dominates social media and whatnot, but until that equates to them actually making a significant jump in numbers, it’s all fool’s gold when it comes to the context of “the NBA is gaining traction on football” spiels.
What does the NFL have to do with this?
