I know what your saying, there just isn't that much intrest. I'm as guilty as the next guy, b/c I havn't even sat down and watched a full game yet. Boston and Detroit played last night, a game that I intended on watching but honesly forgot about it. Then there was the Mavs/Suns, which I only watched an hour of and went to bed w/ 4 min left. Pro b-ball just isn't what it used to be.
I wonder if it's the Spurs. I respect them and their accomplishments, I just don't give a shit about watching them play unless it's against a contender in the West in March. It's a snoozefest.
It could also be the fact that the East is weak. In my part of the country we're always accused of having infamous "East Coast Bias", so maybe that has something to do with it. I think Boston being good can help the NBA, and Lebron can't hurt.
Something needs to happen, b/c I've always been a big NBA fan, and I'm starting to prefer college.
