It's not even worth watching until the playoffs since literally more than half the teams make it in. Then often the playoffs aren't worth watching until the semi finals when the super teams start clashing.

No defense.

A guy drives into the paint and two defenders are looking at the ball sinking through the hoop.

because their lack of competitive balance and decision to let everyone into the playoffs means the regular seasons only purose is to injure someone and create some shakeup for the post season. And if that doesn't happen, you know who is going to win. Their playoffs are slow as fuck since players are babies and can't play 2 days in a row. So watching whatever makes it onto SVP sportcenter is more than enough for me to watch.

Tremendous athletes, but i just couldn't give less of a fuck about them.

Give me the 80s bad boy era. Nowadays i watch olypmic basketball. Its so much more smooth. You only get 3 timeouts and the players cant call them. Only the coach.

because it's willfully ignorant of what was called a foul in both periods and a good reminder to the levels of wrong you're capable of when trying to think.

Too much focus on offense. For about 30 years now the rules have progressively moved to a more offensive style of basketball in the NBA.

too much flipping and ticky tack fouls.

the rise of the super team also makes it a lot less interesting. Every year there seems to be fewer teams actually competing to win.

the players are the best theyve ever been, this is the most talented era to date, the game has just gotten worse.

FIBA / Olympics are great. NCAA isnt as good as it used to be but its now better than NBA as it has gotten worse at a slower rate.

I honestly don't remember what my opinion was of that Hawks team at the time, but if thinking a 60 win team was a title contender 6 years ago is what you're grasping on to, allow me to roll my eyes and move on.

tbqh, I'd just once like to see someone bitching about fouls at least acknowledge that we're witnessing the fewest foul calls and free throws in the history of the league. Frankly, I'll take some ticky tack fouls here and there (LOL if people think they didn't happen back then) if it means a game more based on skill rather than trying to hurt players because you have trouble defending them. Give me the '04 Pistons talented defense over the "Bad Boys" whose "toughness" meant throwing elbows and clotheslines.

This isnt true.

My only issue with the NFL is that they are racist and dont want black people to play QB which is why they blackballed Colin Kaepernick.
