For some reason, people in this city enjoy the Brooklyn Nets. We’ve never heard of them, but apparently they’re in the NBA just like the New York Knicks, a team with the best record in the league. FishbowlNY’s ignorance aside, the Nets must be doing something right, because last night’s game versus the Lakers was the most-watched and highest-rated regular season Nets broadcast on YES since 2006.
The 10 pm tip-off garnered 125,000 average TV HHs and a 1.69 average TV HH rating, which was also made it YES’ third-most-watched and third-highest-rated Nets telecast ever.
We must find out more about these “Nets.” We’re going to start by Googling, “inferior basketball team in New York” and go from there.
