Pro or College Basketball

Postby jkpigskin » Mon Feb 20, 2006 10:32 pm

this thread probably already has happened but i want to know... my friend and i have had an argument about this for a while....

i say college just because march madness is the best basketball tradition and the pros just show boat and dont play D

he says NBA is better because it has more skill (of course) and college guys are just playing to go to the nba... :-[

but that alone isnt enough to persuade him so i want other peoples idea... and i apologize in advance if this is a rerun of a post

College during the playoffs. I just find it more exciting.

The NBA SUCKS! In-regards to that thing they call the dunk contest:

Nate Robinson sucks. A.I. to A.I. was absolutely sick, up there with some of the best dunks ever. Nate Robinson missed his shitty ass dunk 14 times before he finally made it. None of his previous dunks were even that impressive. I am not one to say a dunk is good just because a midget threw it down. You still need to add some flavor to your moves. Kenny Smith must have some sort of Napoleon complex himself to get the judges to vote so highly for the midget from New York. Spud Webb sucks too. Iggy got robbed.

Neither.

If I had to choose one it would be the NBA, but I'd rather watch the PGA, and that's not saying much.

College by far. Now, I'm not a huge fan of basketball in general, but March Madness is better basketball than a full season and 30-year-long playoffs of the NBA. The brackets are friggin' awesome also when the tourney rolls around.

I honestly didn't know that the NBA ASG was on until an hour before it was played last night. I watched a movie instead and was glad I did after watching the highlights of it on SC afterwards.

I like college basketball better year-round. I can't stand watching NBA games. College is more exciting especially come March. Every team has a chance to win on every night.

College by far - team play, better defense, intense rivalries, march madness... it is also a much better sport to watch in person with the student sections, bands, etc. GO STANFORD ;-D

College by far. March Madness is (to me) the most exciting event in all of sports, and I'm a baseball guy. But besides that, I've been turned off of the NBA ever since the strike (lockout?). When Kenny Anderson whined about how he needed some money to pay the insurance on his cars, and he made $10M a year, that was about it for me. :-P

Don't get me wrong, there are still a couple teams I find entertaining to watch (Suns, Mavs, and Pistons), but I don't go out of my way to watch the NBA at all. I'll watch a college game if there's nothing else on, but if my choice is the NBA or bed, I choose bed.
