It's playoff time, when it gets interesting.

and they start to play some defense.  But they have to play more than a 3 game series and so the interest level doesn't really go up until the finals.

There's a bit of intrigue as both the Lakers and Warriors are 2 losses away from going home.

Yeah those Warrior Cav sweeps were awe inspiring.

Even then you generally have to wait until round 3 for things to actually get competitive.

That time of year when Sixers fans convince themselves that tanking for ten years in exchange for a second-round elimination is a good trade-off.

I didn't need a rules change to stop watching the NBA. I grew up and realized it's a trash sport. When you can take an entire season worth of games and end them after the 1Q instead of playing them out, and still have the exact same end-of-season standings, there is a fundamental problem with the sport. You can even creep it back farther: if the home team is winning at any point in the 1Q, you can safely bet that the home team will win the game. 8 seconds in and the home team is up 3-0? Cash the check, because the game is already over. I've made money betting that last bit at the bar, and I don't even follow the NBA enough to know which teams might be good.

some burnt toast smelling for everyone
-just happy we watched the Lakers-Celtics-Pistons even the Suns, Jazz- Nuggets before the Jordan rules.
The most watched college game was the Michigan St-Indiana State while the most watched NBA was Lakers-Celtic 1985.

Eh, I think they got an Eastern Conference Finals elimination in them this year. And yeah, the tanking was fine (all 3 years of it).
