    Probably pretty easy to do when its on at 6, there is only one game on, and the champ warriors are playing

    It does say Western Conference Finals. So that would include only two possible teams and usually only one game a night. Warriors have been involved in a number of them recently. Also this is a market share rating. That means it compares to the many times the Lakers played also no?

    It's an apples-to-apples comparison - there'd have been only one game in the previous comparisons, and 40% higher than the last time the Warriors were in said game.

    Do they take into account the number of people watching on mobile devices as well? And how many TVs there are out there compared to past years?

    Honestly, I think Portland sells. I think were a top 5 team in terms of casual fan watchability.

    around the globe actually...Chief and CJ went to Africa couple summers ago...Dame and CJ and ET go to China....Nurk brought Bosnian and Serbian fans, we have Ukranians, Brits, French, German, Kiwi, Aussies etc.....I converted some folks in Taiwan into Blazer fans back in the Clyde era...the internet has made the size of your market meaningless to the fan...
