          Also this article and trolling attempt is a very pathetic one. You can't combine NBA and college hoops into just 'basketball' when the main guy you're trolling says he hates only the NBA.

          Be butter, Kane. Be butter.

              High School and most aau my favorite to watch because of no shot clock.
              The shot clock does not help the game. It just forces terrible shots.

                Soccer better to watch than both sports. No commercials. No video review. No timeouts. Little ref controversy.

                Just two teams competing, how sports should be played.

                    A bunch of fairy men writhing on the grass in pain for minutes and minutes at a time from no contact vs a pitcher taking a 100 MPH line drive off the dome and he's up instantly, no crying.

                      The average age of an MLB fan is 57, the average age of an NBA fan is 42. The NBA has 29.4 million followers on various social media outlets, MLB has 6.3 million. Baseball is the dying sport, not the NBA, there's a reason why MLB is making changes to speed up the game, they're losing the younger viewers, the NBA is thriving right now

                        NBA is horse shit and everyone knows it's a horse shit product. You have 3 teams capable of winning a championship, no parity, flopping is out of control, no one plays defense in the regular season. There are 0 meaningful regular season games per year.

                        NBA only appeals to dumbs and minorities. We know which one you are, Kane.

                          How many meaningful MLB regular season games are there per year?

                            none for the Marlins, but since only 6 teams out of 30 get a guaranteed full playoff round, there are 162 meaningful games per year for contenders.

                            Since the NBA allows 16 of 30 teams to make the playoffs for some moronic reason, there is literally not one single meaningful NBA regular season game.

                            Can't believe I just had to explain this to an adult man. You are more clueless than a 2 dollar hooker at a bar trying to talk sports to look more attractive to her potential clients

                              So you think in a 162 game schedule a game played in May between the Dodgers and Cubs is meaningful, LMAO

                                    The poll about basketball overtaking baseball in popularity was for Americans, the article doesn't say if the 29M social media followers are just Americans. The point is the average age of a baseball fan is 15 years older than that of an NBA fan, and more people are following NBA athletes and teams than MLB, and it's by a wide margin, baseball needs to figure out a way to lure younger viewers

                                      Obviously they haven't polled people in Mn, other than the occasional Timberwolves game when no other home team is playing, you'll never see BB on in any sportsbar, no one asks for it, no one cares.

                                            The NBA has the younger fan base but it also has the most fickle fans. I don’t know a lot of die hard NBA fans in their 50s and up, especially white. This is from an area that grew up on the Bad Boy Pistons and the Jordan-led Bulls. Cubs, Tigers, Bears, Lions suck- they still watch them.

                                              Kane doesn’t understand the concept of a counter culture.

                                              Nba is more popular amongst minorities and the younger generation bc they make a big deal about individual players and their instagram and what gay outfits they wear to post game interviews.

                                              What Kane doesn’t understand is that there’s a counter culture to ever movement.

                                              Millenniums are liberal as shit, and because of that, generation z actually leans conservative if you look at polling. Just like how hipster liberals were rebelling against their conservative parents. Did people really think kids wouldn’t rebel against this liberal pussy agenda?

                                                Not even the Gophers? I forgot, Gophers hockey trumps Gophers basketball. And how long before Pitino Jr is run out of there.

                                                  Since most gopher sports are on the big 10 channel, a customer would have to ask for a place to put it on, I seldom see it on. Pitino is in no danger now, actually this suspension(expulsion) of lynch will give him an excuse for losing.

                                                        That's pretty telling, as the glamour teams from each conference in the NBA were in all 3 of those game 7s. If it was Houston or San Antonio against Toronto, the ratings would have been an ass kicking by MLB.

                                                        TV ratings definitely trump any informal survey.
