hard to get itnerested in a sport that is fixated on super teams and fouls that only benefit the star players. The NBA has no parity in it. It's the same teams over and over and over again.
let me guess- you long for the good ole days of magic/bird/Jordan when the NBA didn't suck, right? Back when Jordan got every fricking call. Back when either the celtics or lakers (or both) made the finals 11 out of a 13 year stretch. Back when they had god awful teams winning only 15 games a season.
Little has changed in the NBA over the years. Stars got the calls back then, there were some terrible teams, and the same teams always won. The biggest change is the name on the back of the jerseys.
The real problem for these teams are the shitbag product they put on the court. Impossible to get excited about a piston v buck game.
