Discussion in 'Syracuse Basketball Board' started by Czar, Jan 10, 2017.
I would ballpark guess that the ratio of Laker-to-Syracuse fans nationally is about 50 to 1.
Those were two really bad teams. There have always been bad teams, the kings and nets today are both pathetic.
Honestly, I'd gather 1000-1.
A point was made about the NBA's new TV deal and how great it is. So I compared the estimated value of an NBA team to the estimated value of an MLB team. I then compared the attendance requirements of an NBA facility compared to an NFL facility. What is wrong with that? If you compare the NBA to the other two major sports leagues I think their player development and general value is far inferior.
Do you really believe that was the point I was making? It's not that hard to fill an 19k seat arena. Especially when you have one of the best brands in the NBA.
Filling out the tombstone with inappropriate things brought me many 5th and 6th grade laughs.
Can't compare basketball attendance to football attendance though, with the huge difference in number of games and also just how conducive the sport is to hosting large crowds.
Then why would you even say it, I don't understand the point.
If we're going to play with numbers, total attendance for the NBA in 2016 was 21.9 million, vs 17.6 million for the 2015 NFL season.
A phenomenon like Oregon Trail may never happen again. The Apple II had a solid 10-12 year run as the hardware of choice in schools.
Oregon Trail is one of the technological ties that binds a generation of publicly educated Americans together.
Also, they made it in to a card game. You can buy it on Amazon. I've heard it's fun.
Dude has been posting nonsense all day
There are only a few teams that contend each year yes, but it's because the nature of the sport. Unlike other sports, one guy can truly carry a team. Individual ability matters much more in basketball just based on the point of the sport. And the top guys are just that good. And... Home court matters much more in basketball.
Can you imagine what James harden or Anthony Davis would be doing right now in a college game?
Probably not a whole lot, since they both would've exhausted their eligibility.
(Davis was a surprise to me, TBH. Time flies.)
My point is... Forget eligibility. I mean just put one of these guys into a college game right now. The domination would be just ridiculous.
Serious question- what would Westbrook average in a college game?
And Westbrook is a perfect rebuttal to the person who said the NBA is lacking in skill development. Russell Westbrook averaged 13 points, 4 assists, and 4 rebounds per game as a sophomore in college.
I'm sure if you did a survey of local non-alum SU fans their NBA allegiances are all over the map. The Knicks might be the most popular pick but it's nowhere near the dominance that local fans have for the Giants/Bills or Yankees/Mets.
call 911 stat, a NBA career is flat lining
