83-81 and this was between two of the best NBA teams ? give me a break.The NBA has become unwatchable. This is the norm in NBA basketball. Both teams deserved to lose,both teams shot as well as my 5th grade girls team. What has happened to the NBA?? Players are so unskilled it hurts to watch them play. Players are all jacked up on steroids and HGH they are muscle bound hacks. Find me a John Havilchek or Jo Jo White in todays NBA,forget it they don't exsist.
The game has become a slow down one on one slug fest. Star ball rules the NBA, milk the clock and then give the ball to your star and watch him go one on one.
Give me the old fast break Lakers or Celtics anyday, I can't stand watching this crap. Did anyone notice the Indiana arena was half full, and half were C's fans. Indiana basketball fans would rather watch college ball anyday.
The NBA is nothing but bling, bright lights, showbiz and the game itself suffers. Watching the new NBA is like watching World Wrestling or Roller Derby.
I am done watching and most real basketball fans feal the same way.
Maybe Boston can beat the Hawks 78-74 next game how exciting !!!!
Take care Run
