The gist of it:

- Guys like Lonzo/Lamelo Ball would have barely made the league back in the day, let alone be top picks. Bronny James being drafted in the first round

- Rule changes that completely negated all of the records set prior to 2016

- Sports betting going mainstream

- Healthy players sitting out games, even playoff games, for nefarious purposes/political reasons

The NBA is shifting away from sport into pure enterainment, like when the WWF became the WWE back in 2002. I'm waiting on the name change to NBE

NBA has always been entertainment.

This generation is just getting old enough to recognize it.

Nothing new under the sun.

itsjust think were in the midst of whitenessing the passing of the torch between generations imo.

Jordan era was the same way before lebron hit the L
We didnt know he would be the guy today but we knew lebron was a prospect unlike anyother highschooler the league hs seen before and if you wer a preteen like me after lebron got drafted all you knew was the Man was Jordan. But he was on the way out. The league is in good hands. Just stop trying to implement sh1t every damn offseason. Tweak the rules one year. Give it3to 5 to see if it was a good change and you go from there. All of these in season alterations of organized competition pushes the casual fan away from the game because they cant keep up while working their 9-5.
But nba still has AE, wemby, luka, Jaylen Brown, embiid, joker, ja

There is way more money in "entertainment" than sports.

The NBA is pretty much reality TV.

I agree... but don't go masquerading as sports when its all being manipulated. Sports is 'may the best man/team win.' Properly label your product.

Have you ever played sports? Even at the lowest levels, and even with no money involved, you will find manipulation.

"May the best man/team win" is fairy tale stuff. Life isn't fair at all.

There was a lot of stability with Stern but it should be assumed with a new commissioner he would be implementing new ideas.

Factz. Anyone that ever played sports know that the best players or the most talented doesn't always get the most tik. Everyone done played with the coaches' son or the good ole boy at some point in time.

I swear these n1ggas just wanna find a conspiracy in EVERYTHING. It’s sports. I feel it’s dudes who never played organized basketball a day in they life with these takes. Basketball and sports in general is a game of chance and runs unless you one of the teams that are just that much superior over another team. But the 450 dudes in the league were ALL 5 and 4star prospects in highschool or stars in college or foreign leagues.

They be talking sh1t bout bronny for example like he wouldn’t cook the majority of people in the world lmao. The guys n1ggas call scrubs would 21-0 most these n1ggas they know in real life who they think can hoop.

I said this a number of times on this very forum.

Once upon a time, only the rarest of prospects got the media attention that Bronny is getting. Bronny is getting the kind of media coverage Shaq got and Shaq was a fu#king monster, ripping down backboards.

transition/evolution is more of what it is, than any conspiracy or diabolical plot, just the sign of the times, what isn't "entertainment" based, thats out aimed towards the general populous...
