Andrew Simmering

So I was having a chat with my friend Andrew Simmering and we were discussing how the NFL and NBA websites are different. His favorite team, the Cleveland Browns, has its own domain at clevelandbrowns.com, while my favorite NBA team has to be a sub-domain on nba.com (nba.com/knicks)

It’s not just our favorite teams; it’s all NFL and NBA teams. Why is it that NFL teams get their own domain URL’s and NBA teams don’t? I’d appreciate a “fan site” at knicks.com or something, but it’s just a redirect to nba.com/knicks. Now annoying is that?

But on the brighter note, a lot of people watch NBA here, instead of "Go Duke, Go Carolina". The worse NBA team would probably beat the best NCAA team, why wouldn't people watch a sport at its best with the most talented players? I DO understand NCAA try harder, but the NBA teams can beat them with 70% effort. Is the theory behind watching NCAA games "I'm not that great at basketball, I'd like to watch a team play more closer to my skills"?

There's already one dumb, chinese asshole playing basketball. Your services aren't necessary. Stick to doing what you do best, living a boring life and posting crap.

Dude, there're at least 3 Chinese guys that I know of playing for the NBA, and I think they're all smarter than you.

Paul - if you honestly enjoy watching the NBA more than college, then you are not a fan of the game.

the NBA is for small children and adults who don't know any better.

i agree with Brent. The NBA is a one on one shitty representation of basketball that would make Dr. Naismith roll in his grave.

there is no passion, no team game they way it was meant to be played. I find it extremely boring especially compared to a college game

What're you guys talking about? NBA players play selfishly, I totally agree. But they're so talented, both on offense and defense. It's much more fun watching the most talented players play, even though they don't play well as a team. And the teams that DO play well together win in the NBA as well, think of last year's Miami Heat, the Pistons before that, the Lakers when Kobe and Shaq coorporated, the Spurs, etc.

you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

I can always make horses drink water, Brent. Just put it in the desert for a while.
