Then don't watch you ignorant old racist... as they say 'if its too loud, you're too old'
The game, like life, has passed you by. You belong in the segregated 1950's south...
i think most people over the age of 35-38 do not find the "new" nba very interesting. i used to rummage up some desire to root for underdog teams like the clippers, golden state or whoever it was any given year once the celts were done for.
the game is really at a cross roads of nothingness. free agency and overpaying people mixed with no team loyalty make this a transient game of under-educated people who tend to not invest as much in their team as the 1980s type of ball.
can anyone really sit here on this board and say that you like the new nba better than the 1980s and early 1990s? honestly, you need to watch some of what it used to be like. it was fun. there were real rivalries, there were no gang signs being flashed. players were not painted with graffiti tatoos and there was no hooting like an unsavory creature from the forest once you do something as remedial as dunk the ball.
back in the old days larry bird was the renowned biggest trash talker in the game. he got into more dudes' heads than anyone. but he did it quietly. it was tactful yet effective. brutally effective. nowadays not so much. no tact and no class. the games tend to be slow, attendance is way down. it's kind of like the nba of the 70s that was struggling for life, only we already have the "doctor J" who was supposed to revive the league when he came over from the ABA. lebron james is already here. and nobody likes him. he's a petty loser-type personality who spent years in the league being a thin skinned narcissist and now that he finally has three stars on a team at a relatively young age, he can win.
it's just not what it used to be. i'm done after this season. the joy is gone out of watching ALL professional sports. a team can be down by 21 in the NFL and someone makes a tackle and then proceeds to have a big celebration. you're down 21, shut the hell up and get back to the line! it's the same in the nba now- block a shot when you're down 20 and pound your chest and make some noises. or better yet, take a bad shot and then argue with the refs instead of getting back on D
There you go/// Getting killed but celebrating a dunk by going into a king kong chest pounding... or how about the "bad looks" after dunking and staring down the fans for several seconds... like they just beat down 4 burglars robbing their house and about to rape their wife.. Are these nitwits so uneducated and stupid?
Im sure the light weight coaches and owners say they are expressing themselves...lol Just like they all seem to be expressing themselves wearing those goofy black rimmed glasses, sometimes without lenses.. I feel embarrassed for them, to tell you the truth...KG included.. Seems they feel intellectual wearing them..
Just as the players... the coaches, ownership and league have all gone south from years ago imo.
The inmates have taken over the asylum... Doc is perfect example the way he cowers at the feet of Rondo.. It's a league about ME... for the most part...
Can you tell me players really give a s*** about team when they're down 20 with 3 mins to go and celebrate a dunk like they just won the lottery? Guess it starts with the crazy money they make. Maybe they temporarily get down cause they're losing the game then a light goes on... hey i'm worth $40mil.... I dont have a worry in the world... win/lose, whats the difference.. Im still taking my b****es to Tahiti and Maui on a pvt jet.. I got $$ to burn and im set for life...
