With the ratings continuing to be absolutely beyond abysmal for the NBA playoffs, we figure there's a reasonable possibility that the draft lottery may actually outdraw the game. We're not sure how we're going to find this out, but we're going to try.
Keep in mind, all day ESPN has been hyping both the game and the draft together - our guess is to get Memphis and Boston fans to hopefully leave their TV's on and watch the crapfest that is Jazz/Spurs. It's a ratings ploy, like putting Skin on after the Simpsons. And if you're asking what the hell was Skin, we've already proved our point.
Quite frankly, we're not going to get suckered in. As soon as the lottery ends, we're going to do something else. Like hypothesize on why San Antonio fans don't even like watching the Spurs play. There were upwards of 500 to 1000 empty seats at the arena for Game 1. At the rate basketball is going, it may soon be appearing on Versus.
