NBA only the 5th popular sport in America

Harris Poll results:

In 2014, 35 percent of fans call the NFL their favorite sport, followed by Major League Baseball (14 percent), college football (11 percent), auto racing (7 percent), the NBA (6 percent), the NHL (5 percent) and college basketball (3 percent).

Surprised at the small percentage difference between NBA and NHL. Then again I guess basketball is the 2nd favourite sport for far more people than hockey.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

I'm surprised it's more popular than college basketball.

And I am even more surprised at the number for baseball, no one really watches it anymore.

Not surprised at all, I don't watch BEISBOL on TV, ever, but I do go to Marlins Park and Tropicana Field many, many times each Season.

Mostly older people/young kids watch and go to baseball games. I know I hate it.

Maybe international, but it will probably never be the 2nd biggest sport in the US. It will always either be a combo of NFL/College football or NFL/MLB.

College football is HUGE in the south and places like Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska etc..believe me its more popular than the NBA.

About baseball, the viewership tends to be the older demographic, the sport is very regionalized as well, certain markets (NYC, Boston, St. Louis and others I can't think of quickly) do much better than others. For example, in NYC I would say baseball is still #1, even above the NFL, once football season ends here sports talk immediately goes to baseball even though the season doesn't start in 2-3 months

That's because baseball started here. It's the sport with the most history. Plus all the teams, Yankees, Mets, Dodgers, Giants. Add the success on top of that (29 combined WS between Yankees/Mets).

A lot of people from outside the US don't realize just how big the US (and more specifically the Bible Belt) is. It actually contains the biggest proportion of the nations population (Source: http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0764220.html)
