Game 7 ratings, 2nd highest in 15yrs

LeBron James may be one of the more polarizing figures in all of professional sports, but a ton of people sure tuned in to watch the Miami Heat forward win his second NBA championship.

According to a report from Sports Media Watch, ABC's affiliate ratings for Thursday night's Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals are huge. The game drew 26.3 million viewers on average for the telecast and a 15.3 final rating, a measurement of the percentage of households with televisions watching the game.

The Miami Heat defeated the San Antonio Spurs, 95-88, in Game 7 to take their second straight NBA championship.

For outgoing NBA commissioner David Stern, that massive number is nothing short of a boon for his league. The rating was the second highest since Michael Jordan rose over Byron Russell in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals, trailing only Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics.

Game 7 of the Boston-Los Angeles series drew a monster average of 35.9 million viewers and a 22.8 final rating. That number is even higher than the peak 15-minute window of Heat-Spurs, which hit its apex from 11:30-11:45 ET, when 34.2 million viewers were watching as James helped close out San Antonio.

that's incredible considering small market spurs, and the stigma that's attached to the spurs for being boring from the casual fan

which randomly I was talking to someone about basketball and they told me the spurs were boring, didn't say much to him about what I thought because to have that opinion makes you a casual not understanding the spurs have completely changed since the torch was passed from Duncan to tony parker
