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..
Are you mad? are you expecting 50 % of the worlds population to be fans of the NBA?
To put it in proportion, 1 billion people watched the world cup final 2014. And you expect 3-4 billion people to be FANS of the NBA in ten years time?
Believe me the NBA is happy with 15 % of that.
