basketball is a joke of a game, much like all the other 'entertainment' they show in between adverts/commercials

in fact, didn't realise it was on, will watch it as it will send me to sleep in no time, 10 mins of gametime per 3 hours of timeouts and breaks :thumbsup:

getting paid to watch it:whistling:

pfft, clearly do not appreciate the fact that they are high quality sportsman playing a decent game and they do not have to get paid an extortionate amount of money (such as football players) to do what they do, because funnily enough, they do it for the love of the game and not for the fame and the money!

i'm sure they are great sportsmen, however due to american tv networks the game is a joke.

And watching it worked a treat, i was in a coma in no time :-D

Do you even know anything about what they get paid, some of them are getting paid http://sportige.com/2009-2010-biggest-contracts/ Its one of the most popular sports in one of the worlds biggest countries of course there is plenty of money in it.

That said I really enjoy basketball although don't get to see it much just wish they'd cut out all the commercial aspects and focus more on the game

yeah but if you put it in comparison to the people who play football, example christiano ronaldo, he gets paid an excessive amount against somebody like Kobe or even Garnett. The amount these two make in a year is almost what ronaldo makes in just over a month its pathetic!

Used to love basketball. Played a lot when I was a teenager until drink took over. Even trained with Laszlo Nemeth.

I remember when Channel 4 first start showing the play offs live in about 95. Used to stay up watching it then roll into school the next day at lunchtime :thumbsup:

Are you serious? You think Ronaldo put in all that effort and training to be best in the world for just money? Koby is one of richest sports people in the world so its not all about passion. The majority of sportsmen get into their sport through passion and the desire to be best in the world but once they get into the position to make big money they take it so stop trying to make basketball sound like the holy grain and I'm a fan of basketball but making it sound like people in the game do it purely for the love of the game without a care about the money is bull

I always thought the top bball players got paid more than footballers, used to be that case. Then there was lucrative endorsements well beyond any footballers. Has the NBA fallen on hard times?

Quick search revealed Kobe's salary as about £250k a week. Plays a lot more games than a football player for that mind.

That's the point I'm trying to make but op thinks basketball has nothing to do with money and everyone is in it for the passion of the sport :oops:
