NBA Basketball: 10 Reasons Why It Is Better to Watch College Basketball Than NBA

Growing up in mid-Michigan, I was naturally a Detroit Pistons fan. For a while during my childhood, they had only the name of Grant Hill to defend their pride, and were often the laughing stock of their division.

Then Joe Dumars took over and turned the franchise from one of the league's worst into eventual NBA champions (even with the draft flop of Darko Milicic). Following Detroit’s NBA championship in 2004, I realized something—NBA basketball is just plain boring to watch.

Being a high school basketball coach and a former player (not to mention a lover of the game), it is extremely difficult for me to sit through an entire NBA game without it filling my brain with boredom.

In the middle of the NBA finals between the Miami Heat and the Dallas Mavericks, I can’t help but wish there was an NCAA basketball game on that I could watch instead of the snooze fest that is the NBA.

Don’t get me wrong, the players in the NBA are there for a reason: because they are the best. You do not get to play professionally by being average. These players are the best in the world, which is part of the reason that I feel bored when I watch the games.

This article will attempt to explain my reasoning as to why I would rather watch a matchup between 4-26 Towson and 10-22 William and Mary over just about any matchup that the NBA has to offer.
