    The NBA is awesome and has been a lot of fun this year. There are a lot of good teams and plenty of teams can win it.

    Sexton is a great scorer and some thought he was taking a leap this year, but the Cavs just suck. I am hoping Sexton can keep developing his game so they can actually win some games, but he needs some help. Similar to what the Hawks did with Trae. They added a lot of great pieces around him. Cleveland is basically Sexton and Garland with a bunch of scrubs. Kevin Love needs to retire. Between his awful contract, shitty attitude, and the fact that he can't stay healthy, he has to be one of the worst assets in the NBA.

    Same goes for Cedi Osman. That guy is at best a mid-level G-leaguer.

    jawsthegreat Roll Tide, go Hoos. Fuck Mike London.

    Auburn firing one of the only coaches that has given saban trouble running one of the only offensive systems that has given saban trouble to hire a Coach with absolutely no track record in big time football to run Mike Bobo’s bland offensive system is just so perfect it’s hard to really wrap you’re mind around the self sabatoge

    Sums it up. What was once arguably the most entertaining professional league is now the armpit of professional sports. Kevin Love's sorry ass getting backed up over Sexton is just another example of how far the sport has fallen.

    To be fair, I did say arguably, but the Jordan era was top tier. The NFL has progressed (mostly) since its inception, while the NBA has been on a downward spiral since the early '00s.

    People in Alabama have a ton of vitriol toward the NBA. Honestly I always assumed it was political.

    Same. The League today as a whole is also miles better than it ever was during the Jordan era. The skill levels are simply jaw dropping.

    I’ve never been an NBA fan. Probably because my dad wasn’t so it was never on growing up. Wish they would stop dribbling and speak up. I’m a bigger fan of that aspect of it.

    MLB and NBA are just like any sports. It’s fun when you have a team you’re rooting for and invested in. If you don’t then I understand how it can be boring.

    The style of play has turned a lot of people off from the NBA hasn’t it? The dribble past half court line, jack a long-range 3 in first 5 seconds of shot clock, over and over. I can see how that gets old. Need a variety of ways to win, when everybody does the same thing it gets stale. Read an article about it on ESPN recently.
