Hell, the 2015-16 Warriors are the greatest team in NBA history and hardly anyone here talks about them.

The Cavs are in the postseason again and probably the best coming out of the East? Why no one here from Ohio wants to gloat about them?
I'm from Ohio (and have followed LeBron since his HS days), but regarding anything Cleveland, I'll believe it when I see it. They have a good team, but I just don't think they have good enough team chemistry to pull off a title.

Kobe Bryant’s Last Game is Most-Watched NBA Regular-Season Game Ever on ESPN2

Warriors’ 73rd Win is Most-Watched NBA Regular-Season Game Since January 2014

Kobe Bryant’s Farewell is Most-Watched NBA Regular-Season Game Ever on Spanish-Language Cable

Two Most-Streamed NBA Regular-Season Games Ever on WatchESPN

One of the most historic nights in NBA regular-season history delivered the two most-watched NBA regular-season finales ever on ESPN networks, according to Nielsen. The Golden State Warriors’ record-setting 73rd win delivered 3,649,000 viewers (p2+), making it the most-watched, regular-season NBA game on ESPN in over two years, since January of 2014. It propelled ESPN to win the night on cable in several key demos, including P18-34, P18-49, M18-34, M18-49 and M25-54. The telecast peaked from 11:15 p.m. – 11:30 p.m. ET with 4,160,000 average viewers.

Simultaneously, Kobe Bryant’s farewell game – Los Angeles Lakers vs. Utah Jazz – delivered 3,465,000 viewers (p2+), which is the largest audience ever for an NBA regular-season game on ESPN2. The telecast peaked from 1 a.m. – 1:13 a.m. with 5,381,000 average viewers.
Crazy, I know the Kobe game got bumped to ESPN2 but I imagine it would have been even higher if it was left on the main ESPN channel.

How many were likely bouncing back and forth between both games using their remote, or even watching both at the same time using some version of a two screen experience?

I was watching the Lakers game on their home network Time Warner Cable Sportsnet.

I wonder if they got a ratings spike.

They did -

Kobe Bryant's record-setting performance to cap his 20-year career with Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday was the most watched NBA game ever on ESPN2, the sister channel to ESPN. It was also the highest-rated telecast on Time Warner Cable SportsNet since Dec. 8, 2013, when Bryant returned to action after an Achilles tendon injury.
I stayed on ESPN2, whenever I switched to ESPN for the Warriors they were always on commercial
