(The Hollywood Reporter)   NBA Finals are the second highest rated ever, which proves that people shouldn't be pissed off about spoilers since they will still tune in when they know how something is going to end   (hollywoodreporter.com) divider line 20

It was a hugely compelling game 7. I wonder what kind of rating it would have pulled in if it was played on a Sunday at 6pm.

I remember being glued to my television when  the Giants of New York took on the Packers of Green Bay. And in the end, the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big "H". It was a most ripping victory.

Did you also catch Cassius Clay beating Joe Lewis's ass?

Or Rocky Marchianno. Whichever. It's been too long since I watched that movie.

Not that the NBA is scripted, but it's true that people should STFU about "spoilers" if the show is as good as they think.

I read the wiki for all the seasons of The Wire prior to seeing the show but it didn't make the show any less amazing - half the time watching it caused me to either forget things were going to happen or made me compelled to see how the hell they were going to pull that off.

I do think the league wanted it to go to 7 games for maximum profit, but I don't see how they could have scripted Ray Allen's 3-pointer at the end of game 6 to go in.

I assume Subby made a killing betting on the Finals then. No way someone would do something so dumb as waiting until after the outcome was determined to say "duh it was totally scripted I knew that was going to happen".

It's just a good thing the Spurs were in on the whole thing and deliberately missed those free throws that cost them Game 6.

Before becoming professional sportsman Ray Allen was actor. And good one, according to Robert Ebert. No wonder that 3-pointer looked so real

The rating was for a single game, not the series, since ABC got the NBA.

I'm just glad the season's over, and maybe we can get better writers for next season.

Lulz for getting this in the entertainment section. Well done!

Are there really people who think the NBA is scripted?

Oh please, it'll be the Lakers vs the Heat. Kobe will announce his plan to retire and James will go on and on about a Threepeat.

Over three times larger than the largest NHL audience ever. Suck it, haters.

Intelligent comment.

For real though, why would you set your schedule to play game 7 on a GOT DAM THURSDAY.

Fark you David Stern.

Fark you.
