WL, Herro struggled. Shot 25percent from 3 last series. He's better than that..

I will take your word for it. I hadn't looked at the stats but just knew he was injured with a groin injury and didn't play much. It must have effected him alot so they sat him which is smart. I also think
the Heat should play Yurtseven more. When he played during this year he was a very good player and many nights put up double/doubles. He should be a starter in my humble opinion.

Yeah pains me to say, but of the 5 White Guards we had left in Eastern conference. Only Connaughton balled out.

I do think Strus played decent. Even though his shot was off. Good athlete and defender. Fingers crossed he's played himsletinto NBA rotations!

Herro, Robinson, and Allen had a rough final round.

I'll be keeping a close eye on that Free Agents list you compiled though!

It frustrating that Strus and Allen lost their shooting rhythm in the conference finals after being on fire previously.

I was watching Fox news a few days ago and I think this is how they reported it but apparently last years first final game had 22 million viewers. This years it was down to 11 million. Not an NBA fan here but the belief is that the NBA is to woke for the casual fan now that dosen't want politics indoctrinating into sports.

You mean to tell me there is an NBA Finals going on? Must not see tv! Now the Super Bowl was worth watching. Not these guys. We need to at least have one team we can root for.

That NBA rating drop is the best news I’ve heard all week! I can’t imagine to many whites interested in the Warriors vs the Celtics besides the extra dwf’s.

The culture of the nba is completely ghetto. Sure, inner city black kids played basketball before 1980 but the transformation now is pretty total.

the few outstanding white players are usually not Americans and therefore somewhat immune to the nonsense but it’s still pretty hard to root for them (relative to say Larry Bird) because they aren’t American.

Rules changes in college ball have also made that game more professional and therefore a bit less interesting
.
So if YT decides that he doesn’t care, this is what it looks like.

footballs culture isn’t quite as bad but it’s getting there. Personally I don’t think you will see wide spread desertion of the nfl until most teams resemble the old ravens team that beat the giants in the Super Bowl (total thugs).
Just my .02

One of the things that makes the NBA culture absolutely ghetto is the talk of the players when they are interviewed. They sound like they just walked out of the deepest ghettos in America. Unable to pronounce words right and phrase sentences together correctly. It's absolutely despicable. I'd love to see this league just go under completely.

the most ironic thing about the nba perhaps is that rabid college ball fans often don’t bother.

I attribute this to two things:
1. The game itself has gotten very bland and the lack of effort is very evident
2. YT will still pull for their college teams full of players who likely shouldn’t have been admitted but for their ball skills.

If the current trajectory continues the nba will probably be finished within 15 years.

the reality is their current fan base can’t support the league if YT deserts it


I used to love watching pro basketball until the about the end of the 90s. You literally couldn’t pay me to go see a game now.

wont shed a tear for the nba. The interesting thing will be if the other leagues will learn from it

Gentlemen, don’t dance on the grave of the NBA just yet. Remember the league is propped up by a lot of guys with deep pockets and long noses. For them, the NBA is a lot more than profits. It’s about promoting negroes and a destructive culture to undermine and humiliate Whites and our society. The WNBA has never turned a profit, yet it continues on unabated and even adds expansion teams from time to time! ESPN loses viewership and website clicks by covering the NBA to a disproportionate degree comparative to its actual popularity. Yet they gleefully do it.

Our Corporatist System has allowed for ideology to trump profits for awhile now. The entire system will need to collapse for institutions like the NBA to go under in my opinion.

Again all fair points. I guess one can not support it and just hope that the league dies.


I honestly think it will croak within 15 years though because by then most boomers will be off this cake of tears and most young whites aren’t going to backfill it.


The alienation of their fan base is proceeding pretty rapidly. While it’s true that a certain group of wealthy people will try to keep it all going there will be a breaking point.

The womens nba can only exist because of the mens. If the mens is In trouble financially it could all come apart surprisingly quickly.

like the old saying about bankruptcy. It happened slowly at first, and then all of a sudden!

You make some great points too and I don’t disagree that 15 years for its demise is possible. I see that as a possibility for the whole System in general, which is in terminal decline, and for which the NBA is lumped in by proxy that it has the same folks running both.

The boomer point and the alienation point are tied together but perhaps we diverge on how. I don’t think White boomers have been the base for awhile now. In fact I don’t know one White boomer who’s an avid fan of the league. I think the White older base was replaced with blacks, jews, Asians and wigger White types. Those are who watches it in tv. Then to fill the stadiums, I think corporations buy a big chunk of season tickets and give them out to charities and employees. I know this is a common practice for the NY franchises.

I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a White person over 30 wearing an NBA jersey. Yet I see DWFs in Yankees, Mets, Rangers, Giants and Jets stuff all the time.

PS - I do know 1 White boomer, of Greek persuasion, who is a huge basketball fan. Whenever I talk to him about the sport he always laments how the game has turned to “street ball”. He bemoans that every player carries the ball and that it’s too much “one on one” stuff. Then he often references how Arvydas Sabonis was one of the greatest players of all time, and how if he came to the NBA early in his career and avoided the injuries that slowed him down, he would have been recognized as such. Also, when the Olympics come around he roots for the Euro teams too, hahaha.

Watching the US lose to such perennial power houses as Puerto Rico (haha) in international competitions is certainly enjoyable. The international game of basketball I think is a bit more team oriented and watchable.

The nba itself is not team oriented, features weak defenses, half hearted rebounding and is now just flat out boring.

Clubs like the knicks won’t be the first to go but New Orleans???

If you want to know why the NBA is borderline unbearable to watch, just look at yesterdays game. Tatum the spoiled "super star" has his 3 year old kid on the floor standing beside him for the national anthem. The pandering to placate various stars so that they don't leave franchises is nauseating.

Curry should have been given a technical for taunting the Celtics with his showing off of his ring finger. I know in the old days he would have gotten a fat elbow from somebody for that crap and benches might have cleared. Then you have all around junkyard dog and cheap shot artist Draymond Green who always elbows, kicks and rolls on players on the floor but is rarely given technical fouls for obvious cheap shots.

I wonder if it's Stockholm Syndrome for Curry who has a thick ghetto accent and comes across like he is from Baltimore. When in fact he grew up in upper middle class suburbs in various cities that his dad played in including Toronto.

Glad it's over. But now the talk of a Warrior's Dynasty continues.

About the Greek's opinion, while I am far from an expert I thought Michael Jordon began the destruction of the NBA since much of the Bulls' game was get Jordon one on one. I stand ready to be corrected since my NBA fandom followed the Celtics from 85-92 then a near complete non-interest from me.

Yes I think many of us followed those great Boston Celtic Teams. They were so good and won many championships. Who wouldn't like a team with guys like Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Danny Ainge and many others. They were so fun to watch!

I can see the NBA in decline but I can also say that about all of the sports leagues with all their commie propaganda shoved down americans throats. It's so disgusting but hopefully more people stop spending money on this crap. Show them with your wallets.

So why are people still supporting this clown show? I get it that it’s amazing that there have been some great foreign players in the last 20 years but seriously if the nba went bust and had to start over, what would be so bad about that?
