So this thread went from "NBA Western Division predictions" to "Which sport is your favorite, and why?".

I'm with Pete. Basketball is life, everything else is a distant second.

1) NBA


2) NFL
3) MLB
4) College basketball (only like to watch future NBA players but I don't have a favorite team )
5) Soccer, international teams mostly. MLS sucks.
6) College football
7) Hockey

The timberwolves may not finish first in the West, but they will for sure be ahead of the Lakers thats for sure

I think you're in the minority here. All of the things you mentioned are why the NFL is so great, every event is monumental. All other sports, incvluding the NBA and esp MLB just play too many damn games. The NBA has too many teams in the playoffs. Now the postseason is exciting, but it renders the reg season next to meaningless.
Honestly, I like the NBA, but really it's just there to pass the time until football starts. In fact I would proabably watch the Lions play the Raiders before I would watch a regular season rematch of the previous 2 NBA finalists.

Being that this is a football website, I would imagine that you're right that I'm in the minority here. I suppose that every football game is "monumental", but if your team sucks, as ours has for the past few years, there are about 8 interesting games, and the rest is playing out the string.

I definitely love watching football, but there isn't enough of it for my taste, and even in terms of the basic sport, I like basketball better. The NFL is more specialized in it's skill sets, (i.e. linemen, receivers, qbs, etc.) whereas I think that overall weaknesses/strenghts are exploited more in b-ball. I also think that the scoring is more indicative of who outplayed who in basketball. In football, you can drive the ball 85 yards, and then get a pass intercepted for a TD, and then the other team's up 7-0, when you kicked their asses on all but one play.

But to each his own. Those are just a couple of the reasons why basketball's #1 for me.

Trying to spice up this thread

Your first rounder is pulling a Crabtree though.

Couldn't the same be said about the NBA if your team sucks? I mean do they even watch the NBA in Memphis? I sure as hell wouldn't. My interest in sports is directly correlted to the suckiness of my team. Except in football, I'm stoked no matter what. If you weren't a Lakers fan I wonder if you would feel the same, I mean you know they'll always be at least decent. It was that way as a Niner fan for 20 years.

So you're a fairweather fan in other sports...

Thanks for the love.

Hey Valrod, gentlemen's bet, Kings finish better than the T-Wolves this year. I'm confident.
