Why I don't watch the NBA

This is what passes for basketball now?

I realize that this has been one of the most exciting NBA seasons in recent years, with many new stars and more parity, especially in the Western Conference.

But come on, any game that includes this level of blatant thuggery is not worthy of the name "sport."

Sure you say, Marvin Williams was ejected for this flagrant foul. So what? This is assault and battery!

The NBA is gladiator spectacle, a wild chaotic circus of flying bodies and sucker punches. It's a game virtually without rules that only vaguely resembles what was once known as basketball.
