One thing I've noticed on a few occasions is many people here seem to hate the NBA. Does anyone enjoy the NBA around these parts? I'll admit I don't watch every NBA game, but I'm a huge fan. I've been one since I was a kid. How can you watch college basketball but not watch the NBA? They can't play at the frenetic tempo they play in college, they play 82 games. They are definitely trying though, just the offense is more meticulous, players are more skilled. There is no run and gun style (unless you are the Phoenix Suns of yesteryear ). You won't win like that in the NBA.
Maybe it is because you can't identify with a team as much as you do your college team. But then again, I'm sure people watch pro football and baseball. Why not root for your hometown squad. A lot of people want Jonny to get picked up by the Knicks. Would you not watch Knick games if they do draft him (especially if they get Lebron)?
My points may be falling on def ears but this years season has been one of the best ever and its all coming to a climatic finish very soon. These NBA playoffs have been some of the best games I've seen and the games are definitely on par with the NCAA tournament. Melo is playing one of the biggest games of his career tonight. I hope he and the Nuggets can smack the Lakers twice. I think people should give it a shot.
