I used to be an avid fan of college basketball -- back when the good players actually still played college ball. Nowadays college hoops is uber boring to watch. Nothing but three-point shots from unathletic players that can't drive the ball to the basket nor post up and score.
Back in the day we couldn't wait to see superstar players like Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, David Robinson, and Hakeem Olajuwon take the court. It used to be a star-driven game, which made it tons of fun to watch all the games -- not just your favorite teams. Now the players are mostly faceless, anonymous robots wearing school jerseys. It is now a game driven by your loyalty to your school and the players are secondary. The coaches are the only guys with any name recognition anymore. I bet the average casual sports fan couldn't name three players in all of college basketball. Back in the day everybody knew who the star players were. I miss those days a lot.
So when I need a basketball fix I look for some NBA action. There are still fantastic superstar players in the NBA that can really dazzle the viewer. I wouldn't say I am a huge fan of the NBA, but it sure is a lot more interesting than college hoops.
