    Default Am I wrong or does it feel like ABC isnít that into this series?

    Doesnít feel like anyone calling or covering it is excited. I saw a Twitter discussion on how theyíre not even using the usual finals banner and scoreboard digital package.

    The crowd feels really in and out of it.

    It feels and is being covered like a first round series. I get that they donít have much historical footage to use at least for the Nuggets but the whole set up feels like an ABC Saturday or Sunday regular season game and the crowd isnít helping.

    The Miami fans donít even show up on time but the atmosphere eventually makes games feel big. Is it the presentation or what?

    I will accept that itís me as well. It just doesnít feel like a usual finals presentation.

    I feel like I’m not even seeing the kind of commercials you expect during a big sports event. Has anyone noticed any new commercials?

    They don't care. This is such a shit series.

    Look at the scoreboard. It looks like a random Wednesday night game during the regular season. The differences between the scoreboard last year and this year are insane. Just doesn't feel like a Finals series.

    From a marketing standpoint, it's the worst Finals matchup for them in 15 years. The casual fan simply doesn't care about Jokic & the Nuggets, and would probably have little interest in Butler & this team of undrafted players. I was thinking the same thing, this is the least enthusiastic I ever remember the Finals being covered.

    You see that 12 seconds they just did between commercials?


    Something along the lines of

    *showing the Jokic touch pass*

    ďGreat pass from the bigman.Ē - Mike Greenberg

    ĒNot many 7 footers doing thatĒ - Stephen A

    ĒDropping dimes thatís his signatureÖ.Ö.the jokerĒ - Jalen

    Burger King commercial.

    That was the whole segment.

    Theyre making this feel like a nothing event.

    That part at least is not a feeling. They literally aren’t making it look like a finals broadcast.

    I dont understand why they havent been spamming Jokic’s career passing highlights in the promos. He honestly has so many RIDICULOUS passes, and Im not even talking about ‘sweet’ ones like that little flick to Gordon in the first half, I mean RIDICULOUS ones the NBA could mine for hype material. Those are the kinda highlights make people wanna tune in and I havent seen the NBA showing any of them. They just show random floaters and stuff during promos. Makes no sense to me.

    it really is ridiculous. A lot of people genuinely think he’s boring when he has a ridiculous highlight reel. I could put something together 30 seconds long that would at least draw your eye.

    Total mail in.

    Yolk makes so many great passes they sort of all blend in with each other.

    so did magic and Jason Kidd, but when it’s time to showcase them, they still put a reel together.

    Honestly rather see teams like Lakers, GS, Phoenix, Boston, Philly, heck even the NY Knicks in the finals. If GS vs Philly right now, I would watch.

    Chillin and grillin some bacon jalapeno poppers while idk whats playing on the television right now.

    Jokic is a 2 time MVP but not a marquee player and Jimmy Butler is neither.
    This may be the lowest Finals since 2005 maybe.

    They weren't in any series since 2019.
