You're a Duke fan though.
put basketball on an ice rink and then it would be entertaining.
Basketball is interesting, but its too short, actions are like 30 sec long.
Tired watching Nascar once, could only watch it for 10 minutes, nothing happens there, they just go in circles and sometimes overtake.
My guys are Duke fans, so I'm a fan by default. I just happen to love hoops, as I've been around it (son and hubby both still play) for about 15 years.
basketball is easily the most entertaining sport to play or watch. next would be football even though i don't play nor am a fan of it tbh
baseball is fun to play but not so much watching.
soccer is probably the most boring.
Playoff anything is good. hockey especially...nothing is quite as intense, other than basketball during the final seconds of a close elimination game/ game 7.
basically the only time i ever actually sit and watch games of any sport. playoffs and end of season to either make playoffs or to make cl/keep out of relegation. the only time niggas play with any heart.
it's shit all season, but even playoff baseball can be edge of your seat good.
you know what does make basketball amazing? slamball.
typical corny white guys who hate basketball.
typical corny minority defending basketball.
what's so entertaining about it? them running back and forth and doing nothing impressive? oh wow someone dunked! we haven't seen that since 35 seconds ago! oh shit they hit a 3! back to back!! wow they get paid 10's of millions to do that and they can't even do it well.
hey it's a free throw! go ahead and fuck that up because it's not the easiest shot in the history of anything.
I'm a minority?
Pretty sure majority of people in the states understand and agree basketball is a top sport.
Have you even ever played?

i find basketball exciting because of the constant running all over the floor; a basket being made usually once or twice every minute; when a player does an incredible dunk; the strategic aspect in which players have to constantly pass the ball and make plays in order to score; when a player gets a steal or blocks a shot on defense; buzzer beating shots and game-winning shots; and i could probably name like 5-10 other things.
football is cool to me but i'm starting to lose my interest in it. soccer always been boring to me. hockey, golf, tennis, and baseball are pretty boring to me too.
i'll always enjoy watching NBA and a little bit of NCAA basketball. i'm not too keen on women's basketball due to it being mostly a "fundamental" borefest, but i do respect the women's athleticism in all sports. volleyball, softball, tennis, etc.

Agreed. We need better sports. The sports we have are for suckas.
are you white? no? then you're a minority.
played basketball from when i was 5 until i was 18. gave it up because it got boring playing street ball with the same goons over and over.
nothing impressive yes because there's nothing surprising. you know what was impressive? wallace and meta world peace ko'ing fans. if that were guaranteed every night, i'd watch.
we need more rodmans and barkleys to make it entertaining. everyone's a scotty pippen nowadays.
i hardly even watch football now except to see hits. too many commercial time outs. at least soccer requires much more strategy, speed, skill and precision than basketball ever could.
one of those sports where anyone can shoot a basketball or make a pass, but not everyone can hit a baseball or bend a soccer ball into the top corner.
yall need to get past the "constant action" part and focus on the skill necessary. makes it more enjoyable.
soccer nights at the irish pub down the street are some of the best nights ever.
i like basketball because i like watching people run around the floor.
yeah, i'm half white.
so is obama. does anyone treat him like he's white though?
