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.
You should play ice hockey. There is a reason they change shifts so quickly. It was easily the most tiring sport I have ever played.
