Check out the Stanley Cup thread. 320 some posts in 2 months. Over 100 posts on the last game and a half for the NBA on the Planet.

Sprint Center needs to go after the Sonics hard. And don't tell me this is any more of a college area and the NBA won't work. The college game and the NBA both work fine in Indiana.

NBA has a great product now. I know most people like to bash it, but there's really nothing left to bash. Sure there are a few bad seeds, but what sport doesnt have them?

Hockey moves to fast to have much discussion, and there are not anywhere near the number of fouls that slow down other sports. Plus Hockey was smart enough to actually let their players switch out without stopping the clock, tell me that it wouldn't be cool if they were to do that in the NBA?

Wrestling is a fake sport, but it's real problem is the horrific acting.Professional wrestling is hard to pigeon-hole. I don't know that I would ever use the word "fake" to describe it. I'd probably say 'choreographed', in the same vein as gymnastics. Because everything they *do* is real, although the outcomes that are predetermined. Which is, at the same time, why I don't call it a sport (unlike gymnastics...). Best I can say is that it's an athletic exhibition.

And yes, the acting is often really, really bad.

Good post, although I don't call gymnastics a sport.

I call them athletic competition.

I struggled over that classification myself. I've never really gotten a handle on what delineates a 'competitive sport' and an 'athletic competition', and I wasn't sure into which category I'd place things like amateur wrestling, golf, gymnastics, etc.

Yeah, it's difficult.

But to me, any athletic endeavor whose winner is determined by a judge, or panel of judges, does not fall into my definition of "sports".

Sport has a pretty broad definition, so I've narrowed it for my own satisfaction.

Hell, by the dictionary definition of sport, the game Twister would be considered a sport.

My personal feeling on the subject is that there must be an opponent that has a direct effect on the outcome. Golf, your only competition is how well you can do, Bowling, Gymnastics, Diving, Swimming, Dancing, are all indirect influences such as pressure or someone just being better.

I love the NBA & the NHL. It's difficult not to like either one, IMO. The Cavs have been fun to watch throughout the playoffs and playoff hockey is always top notch.

I guess I didn't realize that there are still "sports fans" who don't like hockey. How in the hell does that happen? You don't like great passing, heavy hitting, and incredible passing throughout the game?

In my young days when I was getting into sports, hockey was nothing more than goons that could skate.

I just didn't enjoy that.

It's evolved from those days, but I just haven't taken the time to learn more about it.

I don't dislike it.
I just haven't gotten into it.

The NBA is certainly improving. They hit rock bottom with the Pistons/Pacers incident and have been getting better ever since.

I don't know what the **** is going on with NHL. It could take them a decade to recover from that strike. It's also boring as shit to watch on tv.

WWE is not a sport, it's theatre.

Listening to a sports talk show, regardless of who the host is, doesn't make you a dumbass.

Quoting that show's host with the expectation that people will get it, when that show is not popular to a large portion of the planet, makes you a dumbass.

What I don't understand is when guys get into a fight in an NBA basketball game, they are known as Thugs and the public despises them. However, in hockey, you can sever a guys spinal column, bust out a guys teeth, and fight a million times more than in the NBA and it's no big deal. The fan's and media love it when there are fights in hockey, but in NBA they are labeled thugs just because they are black?

Basketball isn't supposed to be a contact sport, Hockey is a contact sport, and the rules get tougher on it in hockey all the time. There are rules against instigating, if someone jumps in it is even a worse penalty. Plus it can put your team down a player, which can't happen in Basketball.
