    Only 3 areas of the country still watch NBA. LA, San Fran and Boston. All other 29 markets are dead. When you have the same teams always in the finals the other teams fans lose interest. Blaming Adam Silver for this travesty.

    Its just a bad brand of basketball. No ability to play defense because anything that looks like contact is called a foul. Believe it or not, but defense is 100% needed to create exciting basketball. All the players are buddies, no one is really ďcompetingĒ with anyone.

    This isnít Lebrons fault, this has been the issue with basketball for the last 20 years. Before he had the pull he has now. As much as I hate Kobe Bryant, Iím man enough to admit that the league needs more Kobeís. A lot more. All the Kobeís. Mentally more than physically.

    By far the worse sport to watch vs. Boring ass baseball , waiting on each pitch .
    Product and changing rules to be 140-138 games ruined it , along with no traveling after 5 steps , garbage fouls .
    Fukk'em , refuse to watch the Trash

    Bring back the Sonics and maybe I'll start watching again. March Madness is way better than anything the NBA has to offer.

    Warriors are Going thru the motions right now.. Come playoff time my money will be on GS in every series. I'll double down after each series win and let it ride til the end.

    No one is touching this team in the playoffs when the chips are down.

    Itís definitely the way itís played at the pro level. Itís the only sport where the product gets worse as the player pool improves. As much as I love college football, the nfl is still a better product. MLB blows college and minor league away.

    For some reason, college hoops is a 10/10 and the NBA is like 3/10. A lot of that has to do with atmosphere also. NBA crowds are just there to be seen. No one is really rabidly watching like college.

    I blame it all on the millenials. They don't watch NBA. In 20 years from now sports will go in a big decline because the younger generations don't watch sports.
