The NBA is/was loaded with good lines for your sports book. Hockey is still the ultimate team based sport for me, especially playing it since I was 10 and even now in university/college.

Hell yeah, Hockey all the way. It's the only sport I can actually sit and watch, and be excited about. Basketball is boring and annoying. Baseball...just lame. Rugby: what the hell is going on? Football = ultimate borefactor. Hockey never really stops. There are no fouls, there are fights. Okay, there are penalties, but still... they have fights! and the refs let them settle it like men. they are carrying around sticks and blades, but they toss the stick, throw down gloves, and duke it out. Those are men. And hey, try fighting on skates. That's tough shit. Fighting's just a part of the game in Hockey. I watched an exhibition game where the Sharks were supposed to play the Blues. The Blues couldn't make it, so the Sharks split up and scrimmaged against their own team. I never would have expected this, but these two guys on the same team got into a fight. At first I thought it was for show, then I saw blood spraying out one guy's nose, and all over the ice. The dude's nose was broken! I'm getting all excited. Sorry this was so long, but pro sports have all gone to hell, and the only one that's holding strong to its roots is barely able to keep its head above water.

I say, support Hockey. The man sport.

I'm not a huge NBA fan, but I do know with certainty that the guys who play are not truly pussies. They don't get hurt from the fouls. I'm torn on the subject. The players are "acting" pretending that the contact produced more harm than it seems in order to get that foul called on them. Sometimes, it does take pretty good skill to make an offensive player get an offensive foul called because it's difficult for a defensive player to get himself into that kind of position to get the call. Other times, it's just lame.

I understand that at this point in the game, these guys are super hungry for the win. I mean, it's the championships. They'll do whatever it takes to win. They aren't breaking the rules...just taking advantage of how fouls are called. I'm not saying it's right though. It does take away from the integrity of the players and the sport a bit, which is why I'm torn on the subject. It also depends on the refs though. Some games you watch, the refs allow a lot of contact in general, whereas in other games, they are foul happy. So a lot of times it's still pretty situational.

I agree, it's so ******* annoying because if someone is running and you bump them just a little bit they call a foul.

So you bring up NBA players being pussies in the same game when Pierce goes out of the game with a wrenched knee...had to be carried off the court, yet he gets it taped and comes back and leads his team to victory?

I fail to see your point.

Trying to get a foul call = trying to win. Why would you not try and draw a foul to get some free throws?

I don't think they players are sissies, but the calls are sissified!

It's like that in some soccer, though. In the MLS, they call ***** fouls, but in the European leagues, you have to foul a lot harder to get a call.

Pretty much everyone is questioning the severity of his injury.

Basketball fan kds?

I tend to believe that Pierce was being a sissy and didn't hurt his knee as bad as he made it seem. IMO he was going for the sympathy. Listen to his interview after the game, he says something like this, " When I got back to the locker room I realized that I could put weight on it and move around so I taped it up and came back out ".....surely if he would have stopped crying and flailing around he would have realized he could stand on it and move while he was still on the court. The guy was actually crying. IMO he was looking for the sympathy and recognition that he had toughed it out. If he wouldn't have made a scene about it he wouldn't have got the heroes treatment and praise for " gutting it out ".

I have blown my knee out and I didn't cry. This guy actually freaking cried. I shredded my cartlidge so bad that they removed all of the cartlidge in my left knee AND I tore my ACL AND MCL. I have had surgery on it several times actually because its so shot out. My point is, I DIDN'T CRY and I actually injured myself, he maybe has a sprain.

My point as far as drawing fouls is that its absolutely ruining the integrity and flow of the game. I understand trying to get an edge but you can't tell me its neccesary to bitch about every single time somebody brushes against them. The ball doesn't even make it down the court several consecutive times between fouls. It's way too extreme.

I don't mean to sound like I'm being a dick to you kds, its just that I'm passionate about my distaste for the modern NBA era. I have decided that I will never again watch the sport because the way they play the game now disgusts me.

I hate basketball for that reason. They are the biggest b****es when it comes to getting fouled. It seems to me like a lot of professional sports are like that now though. Look at the MLB, if a guy gets a bruise he is on the injured list for like 3 or 4 weeks. Come on do you really need to sit out for a bruise. This is why I like high school and college sports so much better. Players aren't pussies like they are when they are pro. If you're injured but you can still play then you play you don't sit out for 3 weeks because you got a bruise on your leg.
