here's the last relevant one for hockey:

Bristolmetrics from june 8th-14th shows
so dont try to tell me that ESPN isnt biased against the NHL and towards the NBA. The NBA's ratings in the USA are not 6x the NHL's.
If it weren't for the LA Kings then yeah it probably would of been 6x. Nobody would of watched a Coyotes-Devils finals. Not to mention the NBA had a lot more superstars playing than the NHL did.
