I go down in flames UNDER 293, but we win the live wagering bets....

Have I become an old fart stuck in the mud?  I HATED the All Star Game Pregame, had to turn it off.

Am I the ONLY guy that will say it??  The NBA is gonna CLOBBER baseball and NHL in ratings simply because it is a superior game to watch IMO.  Further, I strongly believe the lack of popularity of the NBA 30 years ago was that the country was unwilling to embrace a league that had so many African American players.   NOW, the country has changed.   We as fans don't care that most MLB players are white, and so many NBA players are black.   We like watching and playing basketball more than baseball.........simply because it is a superior sport to play and watch.

If I hear one more word about how "brilliant" the NBA marketing has been I  might lose it.   They WERE going to succeed, simply because their sport ROCKS compared to Hockey and MLB.  

However, many times the NBA succeeds IMO despite their bad decisions.......
