As explained here, the traditional ratings method only counted TVs in households towards the overall numbers. The “Out of Home” method also counts TVs in hospitals, airports, restaurants and offices. Naturally, this method generates better ratings. 

Strauss continues:

Even with this welcome OOH bump, a Lakers-involved Western Conference Finals could not crack 5 million viewers in any game, averaging 4.46 million. For perspective, every one of Kobe Bryant’s 41 conference finals games cracked 5 million, including a Game 7 clincher over the Kings in 2002 that reached a staggering 23.796 million on NBC. 

For additional perspective, the 2019 conference finals, a drama-free Warriors sweep of the Trail Blazers, drew over 7 million viewers in every game and averaged 7.75 million. That’s a 40 percent viewership drop between 2019 and 2020, despite 2020 suddenly getting the benefit of having out-of-home viewers counted toward its total. As in, the fall-off is likely greater than 40 percent, we just aren’t sure by how much.

I pretty much quit watching the NBA several years ago, with the exception of the finals if it was a good matchup.

Change the stuff shot to 1 point and make hanging on the rim a technical foul again.   
 
And do something about all the intentional fouls in the last 2 minutes.   Maybe let the fouled team keep the ball, to stop it.     

1 on 3 or 4 basketball with most shots coming from  3pt land just isn't interesting. Haven't seen more than a highlight in a long time.

Those are some awesome suggestions. 

 

Mine:

Call traveling more.  I think it would change the game we see now.

4 point zone

Intentional fouls....after 2 consecutive intentional fouls by one team, the other team gets free throws; and time taken off the clock.    But they still get a chance at change of possession.

Not just traveling.  Carrying the ball as well.  I can just imagine what Pete Maravich could have done with today's rules.

Right!  Guys like him, Oscar Robertson, Jerry West would have score 50 points a game if they could have travelled and carried the ball the way they do today.

That’s okay.  Once the NBA gets better established in China, viewership will go up.  Maybe they should play the games at 7 a.m.
