Re: Why do people watch basketball?
I can't stand watching it. It's so monotonous and there are too many stoppages....

Only sport I truly enjoy watching is hockey and I know most people who are unfamiliar with the sport don't enjoy it for that reason.

It's boring IMO.

Maybe I could understand it, if you were rooting for your national team, which represents your country. But watching 2 made up teams try to do some silly sweaty thing like get a ball through a hoop and then pretend it's super important, seems like some twilight-zone stuff to me.

I could understand if they did it to get a workout, but why would anyone want to watch?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I get it. In America our leagues are set up by geographical region with elimination playoffs and championships games to build excitement.

America is a Big country so regional teams are a big deal. Before cable TV the only time you really saw teams ut side you teams division was in playoffs and over the years rivalries have developed that go back decades.

In the case of American football some rivalries go back almost 100 years.

There is nothing more awesome than a woman who lets you watch your sports and who can get into it with you at playoff time.

If you want to win his heart ladies, let him enjoy is sports but at playoff time watch it with him and be able to discuss it some if his team is in the mix.

All you need to know is the teams he hates and why at playoff time.

Boring? OK if watching a Man fly and seeing scoring consistently every 15 seconds is boring you need to stop taking speed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39517632


This guy thinks men fly during basketball. Shows the mentality you are dealing with.

Drop a player from the roof of the arena and let's see if he can fly.

Now that I would watch.

I understand wanting to play sports or watch your 5 year old play sports. But I do not understand the appeal of wanting to watch a bunch of guys playing sports for months at a time. Or year round if you watch them all.

Re: Why do people watch basketball?
After some games you start to become familiar with the mismatches, you start to see the patterns of the plays the offense and defense are running, you start yo understand the value and game changing potential of the sixth man who can come off the bench and change everything and you start to see the battle of wills when teams are convinced that they are better than each other no matter what the score is.

I don't bother watching blowouts myself though. If one team is too far superior tan I don't watch.

Basketball is an awesome game to watch.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39517632


But if all that super-strategic stuff only ends up determining who throws the ball through the hoop more, then what's the point?

I can understand why the players do it - they get paid and get a workout. But why do people watch it?

At the end of the day, the sport you enjoy most has a lot to do with the people that introduced you to it. Simple as that. Its like religion, if its rooted in your family/friends ur probably going to find heavy ties to it. Even if it is boring to me, i can understand and respect a fans love for the game.

Re: Why do people watch basketball?
I would have to say there are many more boring sports than basketball. Basketball does have some action in it, going back and forth, throwing the ball and trying to stop the other team from dropping a basket. I don't watch it but I certainly wouldn't call it boring.

Want to know a boring sport, go try and watch golf. Or football(soccer for u americans). 1 KM long stadiums, VERY LOW scoring, and 90+ minute games. SOOOOOOOO BORING. In golf you hit a VERY small ball, several hundred meters, then you have to walk your ass to the ball, hit it again another several hundred meters, walk to the ball, hit it again a couple of feet, then walk to it, hit the ball into a hole, rinse and repeat. Once again SOOOOOOOOO BORING

Why on EARTH ANYONE would even begin to WANT to watch GOLF is beyond me. There's even a fricken channel dedicated to it.

People like basketball because unlike soccer, they actually score...

By that logic, why watch football, soccer or most sports? A lot involve getting a ball in a hole or through a goal
