Re: College Hoops, is it really that great?
I loved college hoops back in the 80's when the the games were loaded with star players to watch. Now the only guys playing college hoops are the ones that aren't good enough to play in the NBA.
Right now there are over 100 guys in the NBA that could still be playing college basketball. Think about it -- all the guys on Duke, UCONN, UCLA, UK etc would not be good enough to attend those schools if the young NBA players were still in college. The guys at ACC and Big Ten schools would be playing in the A-10 or MAC if this were the 80's.
The college game is so boring nowadays. All they do is walk up the court and launch a three-pointer, then walk to the other end to do the same.
Where are the guys that can drive the ball to the hoop?
Where are the big guys that can post up and score the ball?
Where are the guys that can create their own shots?
Where are the high-flying, acrobatic, exciting dunk artists?
Answer -- in the NBA.
The quality of play in college basketball is really pathetic in my opinion. It is a shame because I used to absolutely love college hoops. I grew up idolizing guys like David Robinson, Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon, Michael Jordan, Ron Harper, Shaq and all the other superstar players that made college hoops so popular in the first place. Nowadays it is hard to name just five star players in the whole nation. It is hard to get excited about a bunch of short, slow, unathletic nobody's chucking up three-pointers all game long.
Bring back the real college hoops instead of the cheap imitation we are suckered into paying for now.
