My guess is the vast, vast majority of people that made such statements weren't fans and weren't watching anyway. I never heard anyone actually think that this would have been a serious threat to NBA viewership.

To be fair they could be a majority that never watched NBA in the first place hence as you said irrelevant.. Does it distract from the protests as some have suggested no doubt but the protests need to have political goals otherwise it would never change anything except some company names as long as the cost is zero..

We really need to stop this narrative, laws and policies are changing all over the country.
