Well; I don’t hate it, but I can’t watch it. It’s just too boring. Why? I love to watch Tour de France; rowing; curling; archery; you name it. So why not basketball? Someone suggested race once. Another suggested I may be gay & not know it once. Well I’m a scientist so I thought about it. The woman that said gay said always some attractive people in every sport but none in NBA. I said hey I watch women’s sports too. She said well maybe your bi. I was fair about that. Problem is I’ve never been attracted to a man once. Never had a gay thought. So how would I know men in NBA uglier on average if women didn’t say that. So that’s just an opinion a lot of women have. As for racism. I’m mixed race. Look white but technically not. Had black roommates. Dated black women. Wouldn’t I realize it if I’m racist? I voted for Obama the first time. I get mad when blacks are messed over. Then I realized I’m old. When I was a boy I hated the NBA; & it was nearly all white. The only time I ever watched the NBA was Jordan. That’s it. I used to play basketball. I’d jump from free throw line & slam. Do 360 degree slams. I was a 3 point assassin before they even counted that much. Hook shots. You could never leave me uncovered. You couldn’t cover me. I was even better at D. So I remember why I don’t like the NBA. They are not elite athletes. See I was great at track & field; gymnastics. Then I got huge in puberty. So I got great at stuff like football & baseball. I’m great at marksmanship & martial arts. So I watch these slow tall athletes & realize most of them aren’t fast. They can’t jump high or fast. They’re not great shooters. Not great defenders due to slow reflexes. They are just the best tall people. Golf used to be that way. It was just the best rich people. But Tiger changed that. Now better athletes can break in. Yes I know no golfer is a great all around athlete. But they are great at their sport. I’ve played golf. It’s hard. I’d needed a lot of T time. Cost too much. Even when I had the $ I wouldn’t spend that much. Same for auto racing. I was great at that on very small scale. But takes a lot of $ to try to reach NASCAR. Top level reflexes as good as mine. So not worth the investment I hopes I’d make it. So that’s why I don’t watch the NBA. They miss too much. They’re too slow & up athletic. I’m just not impressed. I told someone that once. They said well why didn’t you try. I’m 5’10”. Not much chance. When your that height they can shoot over you. If you try to use faster reflex & great vertical to block it they can just pass it. So not many short people in sport. Plus when I did play they always wanted me to move ball down court & pass underneath. Before they passed rules to stop under the basket defending you used the center a lot. Passing was used less; & when I’d drain my shots from near half court they’d get mad. It’s only worth two; move the ball, pass it underneath.
