Default The NBA is a joke

And a complete waste of time.
Not that that is really anything new. The league has been a total joke for many years.

Turn on the tube, within 30 seconds, TRAVELING......not called.
15 seconds later, TRAVELING.....not called.

Since when is traveling allowed in basketball?

If one of THE most fundamental BASICs of the game is not properly called, then what does it say about the league?

It says it blows, that's what.

I could go on and on and on with MANY other reasons why this league is a joke and a waste of time, but this particular one is SO egregious that it's impossible to get past it and respect the league at all.

Like clowns, I laugh at the NBA.

Well....I am a fan of the NBA, but I can see where it has its flaws. I don't consider it on as high a level as I do the NFL or MLB, that's for sure.

When I was watching the Pistons - Spurs game this morning, I was shocked by how much Rasheed and Antonio McDyess got away with in terms of abusing refs. In the other pro leagues, they would've been tossed (see Steve Smith yesterday for proof). I do agree the officiating in the NBA needs an overhaul.

Because in this league, dunks, athletic layups, and fade away jumpers are valued. Fundamental's aren't. In the end, this is a buisness. And people don't watch great ref's or excellent screens, or other of the lost techniques of before and focus on dunks and other things on sportscenter.

I personally enjoy it immensely, flaws and all.

Thanks for your opinion, Jim. :bash:

Not sure why you're in this forum if you hate it so much, unless you're just trying to stir things up..

This is the forum for NBA opinions. That's all.

Among MANY other maladies, the league has grossly over-expanded. Too many bad teams, too many bad players, too much lethargy.
Since it's all about money, it'll NEVER happen, but the league needs to lop off about a dozen teams (at least) and then the sport would begin to get on track to once again become 'somewhat' compelling.

So move on to some other sport that you like.. I don't personally care for a thread in the NBA forum about how much the NBA sucks. Your opinion has been stated. Thanks.
