Many people said that the NBA lockout last season would increase viewership for the NHL. Not sure if that happened or not, but is the reverse true? Will you watch more NBA if the lockout lasts?

last lockout I sure did. It also helped that the Suns became awesome that year. Less optimistic this year.

Watching the NBA is last on my list of things to do, right behind clubbing baby seals.

I sure will.

I started to pay more attention to the NBA last season because the NHL was icing their worst product since the 2004-2005 lockout. The NBA playoffs blew away the NHL playoffs in terms of entertainment value. Not even close.

The NBA won me over for sure.

The only reason I get cable is for hockey. So no, I won't watch NBA.

Yes. I'm a casual Knicks fan. Will absolutely watch more now, especially after the Yankee season is over.

Yes. The NBA was so much more exciting than the NHL last year it was a little sad, and with no NHL now, the decision is very easy.

Last year was the first year I watched the NHL more than the NBA, with the Jets returning and the Raptors being awful. But the NBA playoffs blew the NHL playoffs outta the water. I'll be back to the NBA full swing this year.

I will be watching more NBA like I did during the last lockout. Something needs to be my pro sports fix and the NBA is it.

Hell ****ing no.

I'd rather pour vinegar in my eyes after slicing them with a box cutter than watch the NBA.

I followed basketball before I started following hockey. I started drifting from the Knicks in favor of the Rangers, but since they're both on MSG Network I still watch a heavy dosage of both. I'll probably watch the same amount of NBA and much more NCAA basketball, which I find to be significantly more entertaining.

Nope. My time that was dedicated to NHL hockey will go towards studying...studying and some more studying. Really fortunate that the lockout came during this year.

Not a NBA fan or MLB fan at all. As for NFL, I'll watch the playoffs and that's about it. I don't know many players or much about the (tactical aspect) game, but I usually catch NFC and AFC Finals and SuperBowl.

Oh, and obviously, I'll watch a little more Tennis than usual... i.e. Nole's matches.
