Wow. That's shocking considering how much less exciting/entertaining the game is without fans.

Canadians like seeing the Raps dominate a playoff game more than a nailbiter

Very surprised considering we played at 4 pm and against a team that a casual fan couldn't name one player on

And to be fair...there would usually be about 40000 screaming fans in the arena and outside in Jurassic Park if not for this pandemic. Bars would be packed as well.

No other way to watch the champs take a dump on the Nets.

This was also on Sportsnet One which is not part of basic TV. You need to pay more for that channel.

Whenever you win a 'Chip you get a lot of bandwagon fans

Remember in the 90's every other person claimed to be a Bulls fan you'd see Bulls hats and jackets everywhere
now you're about as likely to come across a Bulls fan or see their merch as you are the Sacramento Kings or
Charlotte Hornets lol

:lol: not bashing anything. Soccer&football without fans is very different (the fake fans noise makes a HUGE difference)..after all we are talking about 60 000+ versus 20 000 max in Basketball.

watching Bball with those virtual fans is just fine as the Ratings show.. 'no more' of those high-pitched screams :lol:
