Not defending the NBA here, but it's funny how they try to disguise a dig on the new Football league as an insult on the NBA.

Clearly these people are bothered that this "no sizzle" league got more attention than they were expecting.

Okay, gonna play devil's advocate here. It was one week. It was the first week of a new league, there was a lot of curiosity. We'll see if it keeps up over the course of the season.

Not saying it won't, just saying, let's not write the NBA off just yet.

Might not be the only league in trouble...

Re: The NBA is TOAST!

NBA ratings are down for a number of reasons but I'll state the most obvious one - no one likes the Warriors.

We all knew they were going to go back to the Finals and win it after they signed that coward Kevin Durant. Winning 73 games wasn't enough. They needed to have 4 all stars to beat one freaking guy (LeBron James) who pulled a miracle on them. Durant going to Golden State (the team who beat him in the playoffs that year) is the equivalent of if Larry Bird would've joined the Lakers after losing to them in the Finals back in the 80's, or if Michael Jordan would've went to the Pistons after they won back to back titles humiliating him and his Bulls teams in the process.

We all know they're going to win it again after Cousins decided to be a coward like KD and go there too for an easy ring.

They are the first and only team in NBA history to have all 5 starting position All Stars on their team.

Remember when the Madden video games came with the 'All Madden' team that had the best players at every position? That's basically what the Warriors are to basketball.

The NBA has always had a lack of parity, but it's reached absurd levels with this Warriors team. The only people rooting for them are people who hate LeBron James to such a degree, they want to laugh at him losing to this ridiculously stacked team. They won't have to worry now since he made the dumb move going to L.A. who is a dumpster fire even with him.
