Pfft, I'm sure plenty of people like basketball on here.
It's the big thing at my university too, so I kind of have to like it if I want to get into the major sport on campus.

Have you ever tried playing? It takes some skill, I suck at it. haha

And I pity them. Basketball is one of those few sports where a kid on a playground can consistently play at the same skill level as a professional, as we have seen with countless videos on ESPN where some kid out-plays the best professional players on a playground, and is therefore not worthy of a professional league.

You never see a kid on a playground outplaying a professional football player, a professional soccer player, a professional hockey player or what have you. Because those sports, to play at a top level, require physical and mental skills which cannot be developed by a child; or rarely are.

People never seem to wonder why a basketball player, like Micheal Jordan, can have the same effectiveness as a rookie that he had when it was a veteran in his prime. Yet someone who was amazing as a rookie--let's for argument use Wayne Gretzky, a comparable player in terms of status--becomes better as he gets more experienced, even as his scoring statistics go down.

Because basketball has evolved into an individual sport--that's not a team on the court, but five individuals per side wearing the same colors. You don't get a better figure skater as you get older, you don't get a better basketball player as you get older.

You do get a better football, soccer, whatever player as you get older. Because these sports require more than physical gifts. The key to being a great player in these sports is mental, knowing where your teammates are, what they can do, what they will do. It's something which must develop over time in the professional environment.

edit- In this context, even [CONTENT REMOVED] is more worthy of a professional league than basketball.

It takes arm strength, speed, and endurance to play basketball.
It also takes mental focus, so I honestly don't think your argument is valid no matter how professional you try and make it sound.

Individual mental focus is achievable by an infant.

Stop flaming.

I don't want to hear about how "you're not flaming" either because seriously, that's enough.

I think this is the first time I see Latios got quite serious.
