The NBA is getting more popular and on ESPN it has had its highest TV ratings, according to USA Today. Ratings are 10 percent over last year.
This popularity may be due to players such as LeBron James and Kevin Durant, both competing in this year’s playoffs.
“Watching Dirk Nowitzki take the Heat apart last year made a lot of people remember how much fun the NBA was to watch back when Michael Jordan was playing,” said Glaus. “It seems like more people are paying attention.”
