I don't understand why the NBA has such an image problem. I was talkign to a co-worker who explained to me that he doesn't watch basketball because they're all a bunch of thugs.
A greater percentage of NFL players get arrested for rape/drug possession/stupidity than basketball playeres....yet no one really cares
The NHL allows fighting. While the NBA basically has cracked down on all excessive physical contact since Artest went into the stands.
Why do many people consider the NBA a sport of thugs?
