How do so many of you have so much time or care so much to write out these novels of posts?
And I really hate that mentality, "NBA is boring, MLB sucks, etc", as if being Canadain you can only like hockey. I've actually really enjoyed the NBA season so far, plus there's the gratest league on Earth, the NFL, and a number of MMA orgs (UFC, Bellator, etc).
I don't think as canadian you are just restricted to Hockey, you can watch whatever you like. I just find alot of other sports fail to entertain me like Hockey does.
I went to a bunch of Grizzlies games and really enjoyed it, but I don't get why people say basketball is so boring. I can understand if you don't like it, but basketball clearly has the most plays and the highest excitement value per play (dunks, tough shots, breakouts, crazy passes, one on one situations, etc.) compared to other sports. Hockey has lots of speed but there aren't always big hits, saves, scoring chances, breakaways, etc. as the puck can get stuck in corners or have lots of play in the neutral zone where there is little to no chance of a goal being scored.
Don't get me wrong, I definitely prefer hockey and don't even really like to watch basketball on TV all that much, but basketball is made for more exciting environment.
Yeah if we had the Grizzlies that would be different, I would actually like to go attend games and see it all live for myself.
You make a great on Basketball bringing the most plays and action and things, but to me the reason it isn't as entertaining as hockey (Or even Football which I don't mind watching) is that while there are alot of dunks and baskets and things, there not all as important as a touchdown or interception in football, or a goal or big save in Hockey, you know what I mean? Just because it happens so often, it makes it less important to me as a casual fan (unless I have an association with that team), so it just takes away from the entertainment of those plays.
Man... dissecting the entertainment value of other sports really makes me miss canucks hockey
