Curry-LeBron clash seen by 19.9 millionNEW YORK - The showdown between Stephen Curry and LeBron James proved to be the most popular NBA Finals on television since Michael Jordan was winning his sixth championship back in 1998.
The Nielsen company said the six-game series won by the Warriors averaged just under 19.9 million viewers. It didn’t come close to the average 29 million people who watched Jordan’s last stand but, then again, nothing has.
The Warriors’ clinching game last week had more than 23 million viewers.
