I like basketball and NBA of course but It just does not pull me in as it did some years ago.

Back than when Bulls and Jazz were on the top was much more interesting to watch.

Now it is too commercialized for my taste. Players going to another club every few seasons and there is no love anymore. Not so many duos like back then with Stockton-Malone for instance.

Hawks fan here, what are your favourite teams people if you have one?

Glad we resigned Horford by the way he came up big against Minnesota last night

I'm also a Mavs supporter and my favorite player is Nowitzki.

nice Roddy Beaubois is my favourite player on the Mavs, hopefully he comes back from his injury soon, he's a very good player

True that

no only the Players who care only about money

the Whole Organization is business based

they keep doing commericals , Charities

now some NBA Games will be played outside North America

and David Stern is now planning making a EUROPEAN DIVISION in the NBA


NBA this season even thoguh the season is yonug is waaaaaaaaay better than last season or the season before that



in the 80s and 90s and early 2000s , NBA was Sick

but the new guys since 2004 are not good enough

I used to be a huge New Jersey Nets fan when they were good, back when they had Kenyon Martin, Richard Jefferson, Vince Carter, and Jason Kidd. Now they pretty much blew their team up by trading all their good players for practically nothing. But ever since they announced they were moving to Brooklyn from New Jersey, I've hated them. Haven't really watched much basketball since.

The NBA is too soft now, they call fouls left and right, sometimes they just need to let them play.

Even though I don't really care for basketball anymore I still like the Mavericks. And my favorite players are probably John Wall and Kevin Durant.

Hawks win against Knicks =D>

JJ sucked though ](*,)

Mike D'Antoni is a clueless head coach, he just let Crawford shoot the lights out =D>

Formula 1, outside of idiot big shots like Bernie Eclestone, is amazing to watch. I was stoked Vettel won the World Championship. Another great German F1 "pilot" like Michael Schumacher before him.

I'm a former Lakers fan but for me, the NBA has the greatest amount of overpayed, underachieving athletes. Add the homeboy, gangsta element and it's no wonder attendance has plumetted over the years. I'd rather watch the NFL or NHL any day.

Agree with that

I mean NBA and Handball are the 2 sports that there is no huge difference between Amateurs and Professionals like football

on a good day , i can do stuff that are usually put on the NBA top 10 plays and fans dont believe their eyes when they see it , even though my jumping sucks , and i have some extra KGs on my body

also they are bad role models , many of them have Gang problems , Drugs , Alcohol , Tattoos and weapon problems

depends what players you mean, Durant , Derrick Rose, Chris Paul etc are good role models, however LeBron, Melo etc aren't, yeah sometimes the top 10 plays can be dissapointing, too many dunks, things like crossovers and tough jumpshots, fadeaway's etc are more impressive to me than someone throwing it down

Hawks lost to Miami :(, hopefully JJ will be back to his best when he gets back

Cavs's need to gut their roster and rebuild, they aren't going anywhere with that team, just start again, they have pretty much no talent
