I don't like contrasting between good and garbage here. College football is definitely garbage, but SOOO much better than the total snoozefest NFL.

Also, the NBA is only really good in the playoffs. Regular season has too many games.

Agreed.  The NBA has 1/3 of the teams with no interest in winning making a lot of those games just terrible.  For large stretches, even the good teams show a disinterest in winning in an effort to rest or develop their teams. 

Yeah I'll disagree with this. They definitely don't play as hard night-in/night out as the playoffs and I agree they play too many games but there are a ton of fascinating regular season storylines and the requirement of a bench to be successful plus scheduled rest makes about every game interesting if you follow a team. And even the bad teams have promising young players that make things interesting - take the Sixers the last few years.

I mean of course the playoffs are going to be better than the regular season, nothing is better than NBA playoffs.

The one and you're out of the NCAA tourny makes it IMO more exciting on a per game basis. I get the appeal of the NBA playoffs though. The best in the world actually playing hard can be fun.

I just don't care overall about the NBA. It's stupid one and done rule makes college basketball a mess, and while the players are of course hands down better, I just don't find it fun for most of the season. It's just a snooze fest.

Needing the bench to be successful is really only applicable to the Celtics at this point.  Cavs, Warriors, and Rockets are all running 7-8 man rotations.

I miss the last playoff run of my Suns when they would put in a Dragic/Frye/Dudley crew that would destroy the opponent for the late 3rd/early 4th "rest" period.

Cavs vs Warriors.  Yawn.  I have to admit Cavalier vs Celts fun to read about.  James,  not Stephy, is the best.  Warriors will win as expected.  Agree they just have more.

jordan carried the bulls, why does lebron not come with the same expectation if he is GOAT? 


Cheesy Mustache QB might make an appearance.

if you like grabbing and holding, blocking and moving screens, goofy p.a. announcers screaming louder than ours or mizzou's, the nba is great theater.  they do shoot the trey well.
