I'm a Cavs fan (less so than the Indians and the Browns) and I think I watched 2 Cavs regular season games all year. I've watched a couple playoff games, and last night's Game 1, but I can't stand the NBA. It's no longer basketball. It's street ball. They don't play defense, they travel more than flight attendant, and the players are the most entitled brats in the world. Only reason I'm watching The Finals is the economic impact it would have on Cleveland if the Cavs win again, and I hate Golden State more than a lot of things in this world.

First NBA watching of the year was game one. First half then went to bed. Saw the only basketball worth watching the whole year. I love to play, and would love to watch ,but the product on tv right now is not great

Haven't watched a second this year.
My son on the other hand devours it.

I'm not very interested.

It's not that the teams aren't interesting, or have great players, or storylines.

The reason I'm not interested is, the games are too spread out. Three and four day spreads, and the team doesn't even travel to another city? Scheduling has messed up the Finals.

The Finals should have begun on Tuesday, and they could have had a game Thursday. Instead, the Finals began on Thursday, and now to capture TV, the next game has to be tonight, Sunday. Game 3 should be tonight in Cleveland, and the TV market still gets captured.

I can't even imagine the players trying to stay " up " for the Finals, when games are so far apart from each other. Maybe the NBA Champ will be decided by July?

Can't believe this is what the NBA has turned into. I have not watched in years and now I know why. So transparent the NBA wants the Cavs to win game 3 so they can generate more money. What a joke.

Well, the Cavs lost, so there goes that.

I hear what you are saying, but I think the NBA has improved a lot in the area of swinging the momentum of series from a reffing standpoint.

I mean, the way they call games in general is infuriating sometimes, but they are usually pretty consistent throughout a game with how they are calling it. Refs might swing momentum throughout a game, but not so much an entire series. Evidenced by the large number of one sided playoff series this year. Generally the best team won each series by a comfortable margin.

Reffing was much more crooked under David Stern then it is now under Adam Silver...............at least when it came to purposely extending series or playing favoritism for certain teams.

Still infuriating now and for different reasons, but consistently infuriating.

NBA- I don't like how the players act so don't watch it.



Unfortunately, the NFL is getting there as well.

I used to be a big fan, but stopped watching after the 2002 Lakers vs Kings series.

It looks like the Cavs are about to get swept - uh oh! I wonder what LeBron will do during the off-season? Maybe he will convince Curry and Durant to join the Lakers with him. Haw haw haw
