Yachtzee- I hope you don't with the college game because you like jump shooting?
I watch a ton of college hoops, and I honestly can't remember the last time I saw a guy hit an actual jump shot. College ball is all about two things now-- larger teams pounding the glass and beating you up, and everyone launching three's.
I have season tickets to OU hoops and I'm not exxagerating when I say we'd go entire games without attempting ONE mid-range jump shot. No one knows how to shoot it anymore.
As a Cavs fan, I can admit that they did very little (nothing really) in this series to capture the casual fan. If I was "checking in" to see the NBA, I too, probably would not have been impressed. The Cavs supporting cast did a pretty nice job in the playoffs of working off of Lebron and making shots-- but they went stone cold in the Finals. A guy Illgauskas, who is normally a very good mid-range shooter, all of a sudden couldn't throw it in the ocean.
