The NBA powers that be basically decided with the AD situation, which should have been stopped by the league just like the Chris Paul to Lakers deal years ago, ďoh, letís get the Lakers and LeBron back in the Finals.ď They then had the refs carry out, ďoh, and itíll be neat if LeBron beats his old team the Heat and his old boss Pat Riley.Ē

Iím not watching it unless itís game seven and the Heat are winning by 20 with 2 minutes to go. Most NBA fans are sick of the Lakers and LeBron.

There was no reason for the NBA to stop the AD trade.  Lakers made the best offer and NOP got a good return for AD.  Whether the NBA should have stopped the CP trade to the Lakers is very debatable.

the point is the nba thinks that the fans want to see lebron in the finals every year. Itís boring. Everyone hates lebron. Nba thinks heís MJ (in terms of fan appeal) when he isnít ... and the haters have stopped tuning in to ďwatch him loseĒ as heís done that enough times satisfactorily

Everyone doesn't hate Lebron.  Not even on here.  Lebron has a huge following.  If lower viewership were about Lebron, there wouldn't have been a drop in viewership of the playoff games that didn't include Lebron and the Lakers.

Edit - I do agree Lebron isn't MJ.  I'll be happy when Lebron and his contemporaries (Melo, CP, etc) are retired.  I like the new generation of young stars much better although I don't like the modern game.

Big agree to this. Tatum, Brown, Luka, Giannis, Jokic, Adebayo, Mitchell, Morant, Sabonis, Murray, Fox, Zion, Trae, D-Book, KAT and SGA are great faces for the NBA moving forward. Like them much more than LBJ, Melo, CP3, Dwight, Wade, etc.

Lebron's generation is probably the softest generation in the NBA. Their predecessors were much more fierce and competitive to the point where they want to kill each other.

The softest and by far the whiniest generation. A bunch of divas and crybabies.
