The game is so staccato, there’s no rhythm, is it always like this even during the regular season? It’s like trying to service your tenderloin whilst other people are in the house and you keep hearing people going up and down the NBA Live Mobile Coins...
They are pretty bad this year. I give a little leeway with how fast and athletic the league is.... but they are still bad.
The league is rigged though, there has already been a ref caught and he told they story and the NBA denied it of course. Too much money trades hands daily on bets for it not to be. That's only one part of it as well.
The league favors big market teams and certain players, bigger money revenue when the faces of the NBA play on the biggest stages.
Look up Tim Donaghy, he was the ref caught. He was charged with defrauding betters, not even rigging games. In the fine print, NBA is "for entertainment purposes only" to cover their asses. If they ever get caught rigging, then they can use that, as long as you are entertained then they don't legally have to provide a 'fair game.
Look up Tim Donaghy he was a corrupt NBA referee who got arrested for betting on games he officiated.
My issue with basketball is that the points are leads quite similar so at the end of the match it’s just who happens to be ahead when the whistle goes. The other team would win if you gave them an extra 10 seconds.
This has always been what has kept me from following basketball. I think the game could be improved by adding a little perch seat to the top of the backboard, for a basketball-goalie or "boalie" to sit and make saves.
I suppose the net might have to be widened. And placed on the ground, horizontally. And the floor could be ice instead.
