Adding to the useless opinions expressed on here (the whole of BPOT for that matter), I don't like NBA. A bunch of giants take two steps down the court and drop the ball in. Court needs to be bigger and the net higher. College tournaments are ok.

Most people like basketball dude - you're the weird one
It is simply a form of entertainment, like going to the movies, or reading a book. Manufactured drama.

I basically agree, but people have to watch something to be entertained. As boring as sports become the older you get as they’re stupid repetitive and each game melts into the last, it’s still better than watching some dude on a webcam put numbers into a spreadsheet all day. The World Series of Office Productivity just doesn’t sound very appealing. That’s the point, 99.9% of jobs and careers are boring as hell so people want to watch something fun. It’s also a bridge for older people to remember their youth and the good old days when they still had hope and their lives weren’t a complete hopeless disaster.

These players are paid infinitely more than any true value they provide, but the market speaks and if enough people dump hundreds of dollar per game on tickets, merchandise, and other bullshit well there ya go. Ain’t nobody paying to watch me draft a court filing for document production.

Throw in a tiger or something mid game and I MIGHT watch.

Honestly, I didn't watch any professional regular season games last year and won't this year as well. That goes for the NFL too.

If it's not the Super Bowl, or playoffs (March madness) GTFO.

As of recently, I do fuck with premier league though. Nothing like drinking some coffee and watching Liverpool before the wife and kids are up on the weekends!

Can't wait for September!

I still think the WNBA has a real shot, I've been saying it for years, but they need to start seeking better looking players. The 9ft unattractive woman need to go. Bring in some tatas, put them in bikinis, and I'm paying monthly.
