Over the last few years, I’ve increasingly lost interest in watching NBA games. First, I don’t think they should start in October when I’m more interested in football. Second, 1/2 of the teams make the playoffs, so I feel like the teams play just hard enough to make it to the playoffs and then play hard. I’ve continued to watch the semi-finals and finals, until this year. So last night I decide to watch game 2 of the finals, the first playoff game I’ve watched this year. I was rather shocked – it appeared to be more like a pre-season game with the sloppy play and poor shooting decisions. It seemed very undisciplined and this is the Finals! We should be seeing the best. Was last night’s game typical for this year’s playoffs and pro basketball in general?
