They play for 90 mins aswell which is longer than any other sport I think.
The NBA schedule is brutal, 48 minutes doesn't sound that bad but anybody that's ever played ball even semi competitively knows how tiring the game really is. Couple that with 4-5 games per week all across the USA (and Toronto), that 82 game season will cripple 99/100 rookies halfway through the season.
