I can't stand basketball. My interest peaked when the Grizzlies were around but once they left it was downhill from there. My only interest in basketball right now is Steve Nash but even then I'll rarely watch. I can't remember the last time I watched a game.
I dont know what it is about basketball. I hear, through the media, that most players are complete dickheads. It seems they're only in it for themselves and don't give back to kids or anything.
As for the game itself, I think it's lame. There is just way too much scoring. Maybe people are tired of end to end basket after basket. It's just like arena football in that sense
