You people are tuning in and watching this young exciting Sixers team.

Lots of you tuned in last night to watch Lou Williams and the Sixers defeat Kobe Bryant and the Lakers. It was the highest rated Sixers game in over half a decade. From a release:

game broadcast and pre and postgame ratings on Comcast SportsNet are averaging
double-digit increases over last season. Last night’s Sixers win over the
Los Angeles Lakers averaged a 5.1 HH rating (153,000 HHs), making it the
highest-rated Sixers game since March 1, 2005
. Year-to- date, Sixers games on
