I was normally the shortest player on the court, you can imagine what I had to do to create some space. It took real talent.

A lot of fun, although I try and take it easy to avoid landing on someone's foot and twisting an ankle or blowing out a knee. I never thought about that stuff when I was younger.

Generally a good sport if played by people of normal heights. On the NBA level, they should either put a height restriction on players of no more than 6'5" or raise the hoops by at least 1 foot and enlarge the court by at least 20%, then we may have a decent, enjoyable game to watch.

The only thing on this list that is a waste of time (and space) is Moosekarloff. The NBA admittedly has it's problems, but in that league you'll find some of the most gifted athletes on the planet.

Oook-oook, gimme de ball.  Automatic scoring.  About as exciting as waiting for a bus.  Appealing to those of low intelligence and totally vacant imagination.  An opportunity to make freaks of nature into millionaires, freeing them from the likelihood they'd be street trash or up on the tier otherwise.  What a waste of time.

Ok because I'm from San Antonio, also basketball is one of the best sports to both watch and play. Also, it is an easy gaame to learn and can be played anywhere, in the streets, playgrounds, with inexpensive equipment. That is why basketball could overtake soccer as the worlds most popular sport.

The players have outgrown the game. We shoud bump up the hoop a couple of feet. That would restore the game. Shaquille O'Neal, for instance, would be busy in the food serving industry.

A five for the Suns and a one for the way everybody else in the NBA plays the game, for example, Eastern Conference thug ball where the final score is so often looking more like a college score...

Im not into college hoops but the NBA is my favorite sport and im sick of the NBA haters. Bottom line, the public doesnt like young black millionaires. That's all there is to it. Any complaint they have, its dumb whining and "how much money do you make in a year?? Be grateful!!" The press features negative stories because people like negative stories. A story about sexual assault is juicier than someone donating millions of dollars to open a hospital in the Congo, where children still die of polio.(Dikembe Mutumbo) And the public eats that negative s*** up. I think the NFL avoids this problem because in the minds of many of my fellow U.S. peeps, they "pay their dues" by staying in college and getting the hell kicked out of them every week. Like any of us would stay in school if we were guaranteed millions of dollars...yeah right The only time this disparity in sports really bothers me is when college hoops starts, and you hear the most uneducated basketball fans saying how much better the college game is because it's not tainted by money, that the players care more, only playing for pride and what not. Thats messed up mayne. Every one of those guys dreams of playing in the NBA and not one of them would turn the league down to "pay their dues" and stay in college. Peeps say the NBA is too 1 on 1. How many of these people watched the Spurs, Pistons, Mavericks, or Suns?? Peeps say the mid range jumper is a lost art. What games are they watching?? I see plenty of mid range jumpers!! I was arguin' with a guy and he told me the NBA sucks and its full of thugs that smoke weed and they cant shoot. This guy didnt respond when I told him scorin' in the league is up, and it seems like a Cinncinati Bengals player gets busted for pot every week!! So accordin' to some peeps: *Fightin' in the NBA-typical stupid thugs with too many tattoos. *Fightin' in baseball/hockey/football-Hey the boys are just havin' fun, nothin' wrong with that!! Here's and example of the anti-NBA bias from ESPN. A couple of years ago the Red Sox and Yankees had a huge brawl. Some old guy ran towards Pedro Martinez and he threw the old guy to the ground. When I listened to the radio or watched ESPN for the most part all I heard was how great the passion is in baseball. Meanwhile.... ...I guess it was a month ago, NBA foward Carmelo Anthony hit a NY Knick player and freakin' ESPN blew this out of porportion. i.e. "This is another dark moment for the NBA" and "How come the NBA cant shake its thug image??" The problem with the perception the NBA is facin' is that it will never change, because those with negative views about the league as a whole dont watch the freakin' games. They sit and complain from afar, with little to no basis about a damn thing. And trust me i know these types of people...cough cough *Chris Russell cough* Ironically, he's a die hard Republican. Something to think about I suppose. If ya dont like it, fine but dont label an entire league as thuggery or unskilled when ya havent watched the game in the first place.

This is my favorite form of exercise. In order to be a good basketball player, you have to possess incredible stamina to be able to run up and down the court consistently. Athleticism is key, but not as much if your team works hard together on offense and defense with excellent strategies (as seen in many of the upsets in college basketball). Shooting also takes skill and practice because simply "throwing it up" will fail 95% of the time. There is lots of strategy involved in this game and it's a blast to watch college games. March Madness is my favorite time of year. As Dick Vitale would say: "It's awesome, baby!"

It's never done much for me, perhaps because I was too short to be particularly good at it. The hype machine that is the NBA leaves me cold, although I always find March Madness one of the high points of the sports year.

Basketball is a true American Sport and really should be America's Pastime. Everyone plays Basketball and it was invented in America and is an original game, unlike Baseball ( a variation on cricket) and Football ( a varaint on Rugby). Basketball can be played anywhere - indoor, outdoor, it's cheap to play, easy to play and become good at, can be played alone on in a group, with men and women or both together. Its' extremely popular in college and the pros where fans get into the game and can effect the outcome of the game. Rich and poor can play it was well. It's fast becoming a worldwide sport.

Olympic basketball is great. The international style of play actually focuses on the ever-great three-pointer and defense, instead of dunk after stupid dunk. And, of course, you get commercial-free coverage, colorful arenas and score boxes, great commentary and an overall slicker presentation. Plus, the crowds at the Olympics are also much more fun. Women's Basketball is even more entertaining than the Men's. The NBA in America is highly overrated and rarely interesting. On the flip side, the WNBA is entertaining. However, unlike in Olympic play, NBA and WNBA games lack the slick presentation and commercial-free coverage.

Basketball in my opinion is not a real sport. It also isn't fun to play, if you're playing with the wrong people. Ball-hogging is perhaps too much the norm in this game. Also, if you're black but not raised with basketball, white kids will never respect you out of ridiculous prejudice. What's even worse is the fact that basketball more relies on genetics than skill. Tall players automatically have an advantage. That's not a real sport. While basketball is fun to watch and play solo, unless you're playing on a team that likes you, and that you can control, it's not a very fun game to play.

Basketball today is probably the sport that sets the worst examples from dangling multizillion dollar contracts to underage kids to assuming college players simply use colleges as a minor league for as short a time as possible.It's also apparently true that the NBA has the highest rate of athletes with serious rap sheets.

This is my all time favorite sport. It requires intense dedication and is really very fun to play. It's the ultimate team sport, with five players having to work together and remember plays and set screens for each other, etc. Plus it's so much fun!! The adrenaline rush I get just from making a basket, and succesfully running a play, it's enough to keep me playing forever. You get to become great friends with your teammates. Truly great sport.
