Anyone watch the Finals?

Last night was literally one of the worst officiating games I have ever seen. I'm potentially to the point of not watching the NBA because it's blatantly obvious how much the NBA needed money to extend that series....

The interesting thing to me is how little the Warriors (players, coaches, management) mentioned anything about bad officiating, and only really focused on how they had let go of way too many turnovers and the Cavs dominated beyond the arc...which are also both true. I'm still not sure they would have won the game with better calls...but normally twitter would be ablaze.

Don't get me started. The NBA has been smelling like pro boxing for too many years.

I long to watch teams like the late 80's Pistons, and the contemporary teams of the Bulls, Spurs, SuperSonics, Rockets, Pacers, Knicks, and even the earlier Lakers, Celtics......

sad just writing that much...i'm done writing now....

I gave up watching basketball (and most other sports) back in '97. I tried watching some basketball the other day, and realized how much the game has changed, and how overly marketed it is. Maybe I missed that years ago, but I don't miss it now.

The last time I watched boxing regularly was in '91 or so. Then it was the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. That was a travesty, and total waste of my life.

I watch motorsports (NOT NASCAR!) here and there, but that's about it these days. I'd rather read a book, turn a wrench, or play a guitar. Even lifting an engine block repeatedly is more fun.

A while back a buddy of mine who's a real sports fan remarked how he prefers the NCAA March Madness over pro Bball. I was kinda surprised 'cuz I thought he liked basketball. The college guys put more into it, don't get (much) $ for it (yet). They do it for the sport.
As for me, I lost interest in basketball after grade school and the basketball net we put on our driveway got boring. Harlem Globetrotters were the last "team" I had interest in ... especially when they teamed up with the Mystery Gang. :mrgreen:

The last basketball game I've attended was the Globetrotters... The opening "act" was Donkey Basketball. :lol:

The parade was today. I actually thankfully remembered to re-schedule a few things in Oakland to not get caught in it. : )
