Globally or in America?
I think globally, nba is more popular already, and it's not even close. Nfl might have 150 mill fans while nba could be over a billion. Maybe more. If Nba can keep up the growth and global reach, we could be looking at 3-4 billion fans in just the next 10 years. NFL will never come close to competing with that.
There is no way to see global ratings for individual games but I am sure that nba would get better ratings globally because their outreach is just tremendous. Especially in China, India coming into the mix. Europe, latin America, etc..
