NBA Gone Stale
The NBA has completly lost my interest. I started watching when I was 9 years old. Thats 20 years of watching bad calls, no calls, cry babies and way too much money spent on nothing.
The Pistons were not beaten by talent, they we out super star’d. It does not take a better basketball team, it takes a money making super star, or in the case of the Heat, 2 super stars to win a basketball game. I am not talking about skills, I am talking about money. The players that bring in the most money, will win the most games. This season was proof. The Miami Heat did not out play the Dallas Mavericks, they out super star’ed them, therefore made the NBA more money, therfore were given more games.
As I speak to people about their thoughts on the playoffs and the finals I find more often than not no one payed attention. They may have checked the stats on espn, but no one watched the games. Very few Detroiters even watched the Pistons. Not only did they not pay attention around here, Dallas Metblog has not even mentioned the fact that their team was in the finals. And the Miami Metblog just posted for the first time today with the time and date of the Celebration Parade and top billing in the post went to water.
David Stern has the fate of the NBA in his hands. If he lets this slip any more College Ball players will get paid to play and the TNT Basketball crew will have to cover play by play for next seasons Americas Got Talent side by side with David Hasselhof.
