For at least a decade or so now, the NBA is entertainment--not a sport in the traditional sense of the word....

That's the only logical explanation for why the powers-that-be have allowed the ongoing bastardization of the sport at the pro level to make it "marketable".

No amount of ESPN pimping and hype can detract from the fact that NBA hoops is unwatchable slop...

In the post Jordan era, the NBA game did really take a dive. I do think in the last few years though, the product has greatly improved. You don't see the Allen Iverson, Tracy McGrady, Steve Francis types (isolation, ball hogging type) dominating the game as much. I enjoy watching the game much more than I did in the mid 2000s (outside of my Wolves of course)

Thug behavior in the NBA is nothing new. Moses Malone, Darryl Dawkins, Bill Laimbeer all come to mind. Perhaps you may have heard of Kermit Washington who shattered the face of Rudy Tomjanovich with a sucker punch in 1977?

I don't watch the NBA at all anymore, kind of sad what they turned it into over the last few years. It's impossible to take the league seriously anymore.
