NBA? RoundBall? They have a lockout?
Get this settled, we got a season to save!
I don't have an opinion, but I thought I'd click on this poll and vote anyway.
I have more interest in the daily bowel movements of the Vancouver Island Marmot and it's composition than I do of Basketball in general.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
If there is one sport I do not watch, nor care about.... it's basketball.
I used to love watching the NBA. Then it stopped being a team game. Two years ago I tried watching some of the finals. I've seen 12 year olds play a better team game at the local Boys and Girls Club. The game is so catered to the superstars that it has lost all resemblance of the game Magic, Larry, Dr. J., and Kareem used to play. I don't care if they cancel the whole season. Basketball has become like baseball to me. If my favorite team makes the post-season I'll watch, otherwise, I don't really care.

Overpaid athletes who play a schoolyard game for a living can't come to an agreement about how many millions is enough to continue playing said schoolyard game?
No, I can't say that I'm worried.

Then they changed the rules to encourage more dunking, allowed for the clear out which I hate - allowed players to carry the ball ad nauseam which discouraged passing and adopted two different rules of defense for superstars and everybody else.
But I do like the playoffs and hope they work this thing out and get back on the court.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
