Basketball was never as good as football, but what sport is?
It's funny but for me basketball started it's fade when they started playing more like football. They let the players play a tough physical game that has led to player who either are slasher/dunkers or brutes. The problem is that they don't know how to shoot the mid range jumper, mostly because they allow so much contact. Makes for a great Sportscenter highlight of dunks, but there is way too much ugly ball out there. i can't bear to watch most games because it is too revolting.

the biggest problem i have with basketball is how it seems to rely almost entirely on star players. in football or hockey, a team can win with hard work, good defense, and playing a system, while not necessarily having many big offensive stars (dallas cowboys, minnesota wild, etc). in basketball, no matter how disciplined everyone on your team plays, the spurs or lakers are always gonna win the championship because nobody can stop shaq and duncan.

That just about sums it up .
Great defense is good to watch in football , but it makes for garbage basketball . And at some point in the 90s , NBA teams stopped teaching players how to shoot .

NBA :-t

During their respective seasons, I can turn on TBS/TNT or ESPN and easily find a game of baseball or basketball. There's so much of it that it's sickening. However, I eagerly await Sunday every week. Anticipation.


agreed!! being a canadian, hockey is shoved down our throats just like baseball/football to my southern neighbours, but I remember as a kid, there was the big wed nite hockey game and the sat nite game thats it, wed nite (school night) I got to stay up for the first period (exciting stuff) and on saturdays I got to watch the game untill I fell asleep. Something has really been lost with all these sports networks (which is great) showing a hockey game per night,,,,too much,,,Football is what hockey was for me as a young cdn boy.

Don't you guys think you are a little biased? I am sure if you would ask a basketball fan they would say the opposite. I do agree that football is way better though.

I have always liked both, but by far football alot better.....the problem with the NBA is there is always one or two teams that are way better then the rest, its just so unfair that the Lakers can have a starting lineup like they have, after watching them play a couple of times this year, makes you not even wanna watch the rest of the season, because the rest of the league doesn't stand a chance,,,....college B Ball is better, gotta love the Tar Heels being undeafted ;-D

I hope, I dream .. I ponder the thought..

Someday there will be 18 NFL games. and only 2 pre-season games. They're will be 2 less weeks of injuries in the beginning, and the season will go till the end of January, maybe first week of Feb.. :)

4 damn pre-season games is too much. Give us 19 or 18 games and 1 or 2 preseason.. thats all they need!

I'm saying this because I too love the NFL that much more than NBA, or MLB. Although I DO watch a ton of baseball. I'll take baseball any day over a bunch of "gimme the ball" punks whipping it around.
