Okay, so you wouldn't have survived in the '70s when the Celtics won 8 in a row.

this is a sport where the college product is head and shoulders above the professional league. It doesnt get much better than College Basketball...March Madness is done right, imo just a notch behind the NFL/Superbowl playoffs.

I think you mean the late 50's to early 60's.

I am Celtics fan been all my life. The game today is so diffrent then even when Bird and Magic played. It just seems so forced like the media declaring game 6 of this years finals legendary. Really?

I loved the NBA during Jordan's runs because other teams were just as good he was the difference maker. IDK just not the same for me anymore. I feel like the whole league lacks parity.

The Pacers and Spurs are the only teams that remind of the old days.

If college football had a real playoff, I could make a case that college football would take over professional football as the better product.

David Stern made it this way by protecting his superstars, part of that is due to Jordan and how the Pistons would beat him up.

I agree with the first part. But there is parody among the elite teams, its like the NFL, there are about 6-8 truly elite teams, everyone else is just kind of there.

I agree idiots are running it though ruining the sport (the BCS, and the NCAA).

Yeah, my bad.

On college football...I don't think it will ever be as good as professional football until they start cracking down more on steroid use and they come up with a bigger playoff field than the one currently going into use in... 2014? Can't remember exactly. The 4-team playoff is a start, though.

eehhhhhh I dont know...Sports Illustrated just resurrected some good memories with the Suns vs Bulls series. There was absolutely no players more entertaining than Charles Barkley and MJ in their primes. Does any body remember when Barkley's game was on fire in the 4-5 year period in his prime? Watchin him dominate with the outside and beastin guys down low in the box undersized...simply amazing. That Suns vs Bulls series was tha shit. Triple overtime games? KJ, Marley and Barkley went hard at MJ

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

Overall the 1993 Finals were probably the best ever, but that doesn't take away from how good I thought games 6 and 7 were this year

What exactly do the Wizards have to trade if they can keep all those players and picks.

Game 6 was amazing. Game 7 was great as well. Too bad the other games kind of sucked.

Ray Allen should retire now. Best ending to a career ever: Playing with an all-time great, hits one of the clutchest 3 pointers in NBA history, wins the championship...

Bosh isn't worth the salary he's getting. There is a reason why there is talk of the Heat moving him.
