I hear you on that. It's kind of like baseball. There are so many games that it doesn't feel like one game is going to be earth-shattering. It's not like football where I feel like if I miss one game, that I missed the world. Or college basketball where you only get to see a matchup once or twice the entire season. If you miss a game or two here and there in the NBA, it doesn't feel like a huge deal.
That's not a knock on the NBA. I think you're right, though, that the NBA regular season can just never measure up to college basketball regular season.
