That blending produced the best basketball of all time.

    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.
    Id have to say in general I agree that the 80s was the best time for me. But I still love basketball.

    Overall of the 3 most popular sports Football, Basketball, Baseball I dont think the players personalities are much different LOL People can PRETEND they are but there are a lot of overpaid unappreciative "look at me, look at me" crybabies in all of them. Basketball is just easier to see because of the games make up, on 5 players on the court and the camera is often right in their face.

    And its just my opinion I always felt basketball got judged harder because its sport that more so than any other that the avg. joe cant do. There are things more so in basketball that the majority of people will never be able to do more than the other two sports and I think it turns people off.

    Re: Do you care about the NBA Lockout?

    They charge too much for their tickets. Why am I paying over $30 for nosebleed seats to see the Charlotte Bobcats play? With somewhere around 40 home games, to see half of them I have to pay $600 for crappy seats? Why would I do that? It is no wonder they are all losing money.

    I did enjoy the NBA Finals last year, though.

    I don't pay anything because I know people . But yes I do care. While Basketball isn't my favorite sport, I do watch games and I enjoy going out with a few friends sitting at a bar and watching a game.

    the bobcats are garbage, I'm not jealous. Where you're from, you're probably better off sticking with college ball.

    If you want to see real non stop ballin at both ends of the court, go to the Y, or just about any community gym or blacktop...win and stay; you lose...you get run off the court. All 10 players are busting their ass on both ends of the court. The NBA...hell...2, maybe 3 players are engaged on any posession and most of the 'defense' is non-existent. all the talent in the world...no doubt. But they dont produce a good product at all IMO.

    I care about it a lot. I want it to ruin the NBA so that we finally get it off TV and perhaps replace it with a real sport like NHL.

    Basketball sucks, the refs bet on the game, the rules aren't called fairly. It's a sham. Should have replaced it with Slamball when they had the chance. We deserve a real sport like hockey instead. More NHL, less NBA.

    College hoops > NBA.

    Many others have said this.

    They're all right.

    Don't care. Would barely miss it. Don't like the product. Too much standing around watching another player go one-on-one. Too much pushing, pulling, holding and forearm checking on defense. Don't like very many of the players. Spoiled, arrogant. They don't serve the game the game serves them. But unlike some one this thread, it still beats hockey.

    We already have Hockey...we dont have more of it because most people dont watch it. Most people dont understand it. Definitely most have never played it.
