NBA is an acronym for the National Basketball Association. It was fun and exciting to watch at one time, but is so unbelievably boring nowadays. There are about 5 good teams loaded with talent every year due to free agent signings (big markets, LA, Miami, NY, Boston, Chicago, etc) and the other 25 are mediocre to terrible because they can not compete with these big market teams. The league is so predictable in that since 1984, there have only been 8 different teams (BOS, LAL, DET, CHI, HOU, SA, MIA, DAL) to win the NBA title. Nearly every star (LeBron, Kobe, Wade, Howard, Stoudemire, etc) is so narcissistic that they will all buddy up in the offseason and play together in order to win. You would never see MJ, Magic, or Bird all team up, they had too much pride and competitiveness to do so. In addition, the officiating is putrid, as it is not uncommon to see one superstar player shoot more free throws than the entire other team, not to mention that is has been proven that some games in the past have been rigged by officials. I have been a basketball fan since birth and remember watching the Finals when I was 6, so I am not a basketball hater whatsoever. It is obvious, however, that college basketball is more team-oriented, is more exciting, and puts out a significantly better product than the NBA.
ESPN Reporter: NBA news today, the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics, and Orlando Magic have announced that they will merge to form a mega-team with the Miami Heat.
Guy 1: Oh my God, I love the NBA, it's so fun watching these guys beat up on crappy teams like the T'Wolves and Wizards.
Me: Bullshit, I'm watching hockey from now on.
