I also hate the pseudo militaristic tough guy nonsense in the sport, all the chest beating machismo. Shit gets old once you have seen it a thousand times.
NBA just suits my lifestyle better, games are done and dusted in 2 hours, I can watch a game every day if I choose to and its a great way to unwind in the winter evenings after a hard day at work. I put little $5 bets on games here and there just for fun to give me a rooting interest where otherwise I might not have one.
I totally get why people like football or prefer the NFL to the NBA but for me I'm just bored by it.
