Last night's game with the great Mavs comeback had me thinking about what I love this game, and then all the talk comparing Shaq today to Wilt got me thinking about what i hate about this game...
Plus, I'm sick of all the trade idea posts, so...
What do you love and hate about the NBA game?
What I love:
Seeing the best athletes in the world play a game I love to play, even though I suck
the perfect block, pass, dunk, and buzzer beating shot
the personality of players (not always pretty) which we witness more than in the major sports
the loyalty of the warriors fan base - misery loves company
comebacks like the Mavs last night (especially against cocky teams)
What I hate:
The over hyped players, with Carmelo at the top of the list -grrrr
Floppers and big guys who try to draw charges instead of block shots
the lack of intelligent analysts commenting on the game
The incessant comparisons of players of today to players of the past
I think players should come in after two years of college - but I'm an old man
