2019 NBA Draft Lottery Draws Its Highest TV Rating Ever 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed May 15, 2019 3:00 pm

The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery was the highest-rated telecast in its history.


The lottery received a 3.9 overnight rating, up 77 percent from 2018 and up 22 percent from the previous record in 2015.


The presence of Zion Williamson as the probable No. 1 overall pick surely drove interest, as did the inclusion of big market teams such as the New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers.

Zion, everyone with a mathematical shot at getting him was watching, then to see where he would end-up
