This year’s NBA All-Star Weekend brought record prime time ratings for TNT. Nielson reports the league’s annual East vs. West game surpassed audience numbers in nearly a decade. Between 8:46 and 11:41 p.m., 9.09 million viewers turned on and tuned in to the All-Star Game. That was a 33% improvement over last year’s 6.85 million viewers.
There is no question; the interest in basketball is on the rise. Not only are people tracking favorite teams and watching games at all levels – high school, college and professional – they are getting into the action themselves.
Basketball has its benefits
Recreation and parks departments, community athletic associations, gyms, the YMCA – they’re all seeing growing registrations and rosters.
Personally, I think people who understand the need for good exercise are tired of going from machine to machine in the gym. I think they are starting to see basketball as good exercise as well as a good social outlet. I mean, what’s not fun about playing basketball with your buddies? Even the president is getting in the action – or maybe he’s been a good example!
Basketball is one sport that you can practice on your own. You can dribble and shoot and practice technique without anyone else having to return the ball. That’s one of the reasons we are hearing from more and more people here at the Basketball Goal Store.
