Love/hate NBA?

So, I'm a huge NBA fan [have a fantasy league that I'm kicking butt at and everything this year], but I know some don't like it. Why do you love/hate the NBA?

I will say that the main thing I don't like about the NBA is the lack of defense. I refuse to watch the All-Star game now because they don't.play.defense.

Re: Love/hate NBA?

  • I'm a huge college bball fan. And I've been to several NBA games and tried to watch them on TV, I just can't get into as much. The no defense thing bothers me. And when you're at a game, it's like a freakin' variety show. There's music always playing, and so much crap going on.  One game I went to had a full DJ booth on the sidelines, complete with DJ groupies.  I just want to watch quality basketball, not go to a circus.  College ball just seems way more intense and passionate to me.
  • Not a big NBA fan but we got some free tix for a Hawks game the other night since we are Thrashers STHs and we went to the game and had a blast! I like all the entertainment, plus it moves so fast like hockey. I can't even hardly stay awake to watch a MLB game anymore. We will probably go to a few more games this year.
  • I love NCAA basketball.  I hate the NBA.  
  • I'm so-so with the NBA. I'm pretty partial to the Houston Rockets... but other than that, I don't really watch much.

    This x1000. I didn't realize other NBA teams did the full on DJ thing! SO obnoxious. Plus, the Timberwolves are absolutely terrible. We went to two games last year (didn't pay for either one), and one game this year (paid $20 total for $120 seats). There are 3 returning players. 3. New head coach, new GM, all new coaching staff...how can a team function like that?! They really aren't fun to watch.
    I LOVE me some college bball, though.

  • I have to say I hate basketball, (NBA NCAA) I never got into it and I live in UCONN country, so up here it's almost law that you love it.

    And I've tried and tried and just can't get into it.

    I always thought I was just crazy in thinking a team just watches the other shoot!

    I generally don't get into pro sports as much.  I enjoy the NFL, but just don't get into MLB (love minor games), NBA, MLS.  It's all about the benjamins and not love of the game.

  • I'm not a huge NBA fan, but I do follow the Celtics. I rarely sit and watch an entire game, but if I know it's on, I'll flip back and forth to keep track of the score and what's going on.

  • The thing I don't like about the NBA.... How it takes an hour to play that last three minutes of the game.

     

  • Like the other posters I'm a college basketball fan but NBA, not so much. They just don't care as much since their already getting the massive paycheck. I used to be a big 76ers fan but the team hasn't seemed to have it together since the late 90s, and their games are just boring!

    I am SO with you on this one. And sometimes, the other team honestly has a one in a million shot to pull off the upset [as in, they're down by 10 with a 45 seconds to go]...and yet, the last 45 seconds last for half an hour. I hate that, too.

    I grew up an NBA girl first - my parents didn't go to college, so we didn't have any college teams to follow in my house - which is probably why I like it so much. I didn't get into college sports until after I started going to OSU because my hometown only has an NAIA school with not-so-good basketball programs [no football program; that got scrapped in the '90s].

    I've been to several Thunder games, and the entertainment's fun to me. However, if I REALLY want to watch a game, I watch it on TV - you don't have to sit through all that entertainment junk, which honestly gets on my nerves when I'm watching a high profile game [like Mavs-Spurs or Lakers-Celtics].

  • The NBA is full of a bunch of overpaid crybabys, more so than every other sport. The games take too long to play, every possession points are scored, and it doesn't seem like the players care.

    I don't think I have watched an NBA game since I left Philly for college. The area I was in didn't have an NBA team, so college ball it was. And I fell in love. I am a nut for March Madness.

    I LOVE NCAA B-ball. The kids are passionate.

  • I find the NBA boring. College basketball is much more exciting.
