Nets recorded both NBA's worst record and worst ratings

The Nets achieved a rare double in 2009-10, finishing with both the worst record and the worst ratings in the NBA, according to research by the Sports Business Journal, based on data from The Nielsen Co.

They averaged 0.29 percent of homes on YES, down 45.3 percent from last season. That was the biggest drop in the league, by a comfortable margin.

The Knicks were down 22.8 percent to an average of 0.95 on MSG, the league's fifth-worst average rating.

The Cavaliers (8.59) and Spurs (6.61) had by far the two highest average local ratings for the season.

The biggest ratings rise compared to last season was the Bobcats' 75.5 percent, but their 0.93 average still was the fourth-worst in the NBA.
