I love the NBA, but it has some traditions that have gotten just plain annoying. Every player has a tattoo, the half-time "shows" have gotten ridiculous and I need to stop listing now before I go off on a Dennis Miller-type rant.
Last I checked, basketball was all about the game. Now, in some cases, it's become something of a circus act with all of the gimmicks that come with certain teams and/or players. To a traditionalist fan like myself, it's just plain insulting.
I've come up with five so-called "customs" that have polluted the NBA long enough, and if they don't leave soon, basketball just won't be basketball anymore.
