Why the NBA is Bad for Basketball

Logan SchellContributor IFebruary 24, 2009

I was watching an NBA basketball game the other day and I thought to myself, this is terrible. I saw moving screens, traveling, and a bevy of other things that just made me mad. The players are supposed to be the best basketball players in the world but their fundamentals are terrible.

When I was younger and watching basketball games from the NBA I thought that it was really cool watching them hit these long threes and slamming the ball down. Now I see the NBA differently as a league were you can get away with anything.

Think about it what kind've of a message is this sending to our youth. The only reason why these men play is for the money. I really enjoy watching college basketball because those coaches have their players sound and most of the kids in college don't yell at the refs over a stupid reason.

In the NBA its almost a boring game if there's not a fight or there's not technical fouls being handed out. I think that the NBA commissioner should step in and do something but he won't.

Thanks for reading.
