IMO, out of the four major sports leagues in America, the NBA is by far the worse. There are very few, if any, athletes that I can identify with or like. Too many of them have a sense of entitlement and have no sense of reality. I know that is true of many athletes, but I think it is most true of NBA players. Not to mention how far down hill play has gone in the last decade. I really cannot sit through an entire NBA game because so many players don't have the basic fundamental skills necessary to be playing at such a high level of competition.
College basketball may not have as good of athletes as the NBA, but I enjoy it much more. There is a true sense of allegiance to your school, rivalries are much more present, and the players seem a lot more normal than those in the NBA.
Really, there is no comparison between the two for me. College basketball is well above the NBA.
I don't really enjoy watching basketball (pretty boring IMO) but if I had to pick one, it would be college. It's a little bit more exciting, although it's nothing compared to watching hockey....now that is a great sport to watch.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
You think MLB Pitcher contracts are bad? Take a look at the NBA.
Brian Grant makes like 12 million a year. Allan Houston is making like 16 million a year. There are a lot more...
WOW ...If guys I've never heard of are making that kind of cash, how much do guys like Iverson and Kobe make?
Kobe is making the max which is about 17.4 million this year. (bargain imo)
Remember that in the NBA they only have to pay 12 guys. Most of those guys are just bench warmers so they get paid the minimum. So the superstars get their 20 million per year and the salary is still soft capped at 50 million per team.
I think the reason why there's so many out of this world contracts in the NBA is because most of them were negotiated prior to the new collective bargaining agreement, making some of the salaries seem utterly ridiculous. (ie. Brian Grant and Allan Houston).
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.
