Game 2 of the NBA finals pitting the San Antonio Spurs against the Cleveland LeBron Jameses drew a 6.9 overnight rating, down 24 percent from last year’s Game 2, with the drop being blamed partly on the series finale of ‘The Sopranos‘. A league spokesman, trying to spin the situation, was quick to point out that unlike ‘The Sopranos’, the NBA game did feature an actual ending.
San Antonio Spurs forward Robert Horry was listed as DNP (did not play) because of ‘old age’ by the official scorer of Monday’s game. In related news, Doug Christie has been permanently listed by his wife as DNP: Whipped.
EDIT: Unfortunately, the box score listing Horry as DNP: Old Age has been changed to DNP: Injury. It was fun while it lasted.
