Soprano's can't take all the blame for this. Despite all the other stuff going on with the league, I think its become clear that the biggest single issue in the NBA is ratings.
We are not only in a dark era for the Knicks, but the NBA as a whole. Personally, I rather watch paint dry than the Spurs, no matter how good they are. And secondly, the Phoenix rape still left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
How many of you guys are watching? or a better question would be, How many games do you guys actually watch that don't feature the Knicks?
For those that don't- ask yourselves why not, and then I think we'll be able to uncover the real reason this league is fading from the public eye.
I think the best way to get fans back is to loosen up on the rules. I want 94 back! (Mid 90's hip hop included)
