Re: why has the NBA gone pu$$ified over the years?
You guys are lame. What exactly does violence add to basketball? I never hear anyone say, oh remember that game that x player shoved y player, thats my favorite game. No one wants to see people get hurt/ injured, except overly nostalgic confused fans who dont know what they want and are just generally unhappy. Who wants to see what happened to Rudy Tamjanovich again? Play the sport using skill.
Otoh, no one wants to see touch fouls etc... there needs to be a balance.
