(Washington Post)   Apparently the basketball fans need someone to hold their little hands and submit threads for them so they can have threads like those mean hockey fans have. Please mighty admins grant them this official playoff basketball and tumbleweed thread   ( washingtonpost.com) divider line

This Raptors/Wizards game is actually great. Back and forth hard play, and it's started to get chippy.

A game time would be helpful, submitter

I think Im a fool for believing in them again, but Raptors in 5 games.

I dont know why I think they will win the series, its as dumb as thinking Harden will show up big in the playoffs. But there it is.

Oh, I think Toronto wins this. I think they'll win tonight once Wall gets gassed in the 4th

Of all the Philly fans, Flyers fans are definitely the meanest.

Is the night game East or West? This should be intuitive but it's NBA playoffs

dayum the Raps game is pretty good though...

The NBA should do their playoffs like the NCAA since almost everybody qualifies anyway.  Have it over in a week instead of two months.  It's not like some sacred ritual - nobody follows the rules anyway.
 
2018-04-14 07:49:29 PM  
Mikaloyd/submitter- Thanks for the tough love...I can't appreciate it now...but when I turn 51 next month, maybe then I will understand.

PJ Carlisemo also sounds like he's just chain smoked a pack of Camel filterless cigarettes.

Or maybe Spreewell destroyed his larynx.

I actually made that last season...LOL.

NBA viewership and game attendance has set records for the last 3-4 seasons.

Must be a FARK thang.

It's 4-5 threads down from this one on the Sports tab.

lakrfool: Damn...people are terribly anxious to poop on NBA threads.


Tehehe, says the guy tagged as "Lived in Columbus in 2000, saw a game at Cooper Stadium where son publicly pooped."

:)

It is kind of interesting in the disparity between the NBA and NHL threads though. I love hockey but I understand that it is still a somewhat niche sport while the NBA is the #2 sport in the country yet hockey blows it away on Fark. Demographics and all of that good stuff, sure, but it is sort of weird that a regular season NHL thread on a weekend is bigger than an NBA playoffs thread.

So when did it become a thing that we all needed to be NBA fans?
 
2018-04-14 08:25:26 PM  
Welp, as a Bulls fan, it's time to shift to draft mode. If they move up in the lottery, I'm kinda lukewarm on Ayton, although I get that he could be the best big man in the NBA in the next 5 years. Problem is, the NBA isn't the same league for big men it was even 5 years ago.

Doncic is my dream scenario, he has range and phenomenal vision. He would be excellent in the Hoiball system, which the Bulls will be stuck with for at least another two years, so might as well make the most of it. Plus, he just looks like he would be a ton of fun to watch.

If they stick at 6 or get pushed down to 7, I'm a bit more uncertain about guys in that range. Everyone seems to have divided opinions on guys like Porter, Mikal Bridges, Miles Bridges, and Collin Sexton. I need to read up a bit more on them...
 
2018-04-14 08:32:52 PM  
It's just that whenever I tell someone that the NBA is as much as a sport as the WWE, I get calls of "you're a hater," and when I say that I like baseball better than the NBA, I'm called an "old fuddy-duddy." I just can't win in NBA debates.

This tab has a weekly  WWE Raw thread that gets hundreds if not thousands of posts and has been that way for about 5 years now.  Fark has a strange bunch of folks here.

/i used to be a regular in those threads.  They were always fun.

I know more NBA fans than wrestling or hockey fans, but the wrestling and hockey fans are generally more passionate

The FWC (rasslin) threads have been consistently good over the years. Nascar and even soccer can sustain threads, but we've never been able to get interest in NBA threads. I think a lot of it has to do with the gameflow of basketball. It's a lot more fluid and quick, so posting a witty comment or screencap about a play just looks out of place in 2 minutes when 12 things have happened since. NFL- we get 50 posts between plays sometimes.

*wipes tears*

The fact that you remember the Cooper Stadium epic brings great joy, and much honor to my son and I...maybe because you are obviously a Columbo guy it stuck in your brain.

Even though the boy is almost 22, 6'7"/275 with a size 18 shoe,  "Pooper Stadium" will always haunt him as the story I might drop on him at a friend/family gathering....it gives me leverage.

Don't get the NBA diss on FARK either.

It's the first round, things ain't supposed to get interesting til the next round.

I don't bother looking for NBA threads.  Yet, i did find one.

Grats to the Raps finally getting a Game1.
