Other: They shoot too many threes!

In all fairness, it probably was a travel. Ha.

I promise I'm not a boomer.

Don't think I've ever watched hoops with a boomer.

Generally, the ones I've watched with are just there to enjoy the game for what it is. Though my dad loves 3's so he tends to like the modern era more.

He died when I was a kid, but my uncle used to always ask me if I still played n**** ball.

He was aboriginal, which made it weirder.

Feel like you can do this with every generation. My guess is it goes something like this.

Boomers: Larry/Magic and MJ were peak NBA
Gen X: MJ then the Kobe/Shaq Lakers were peak NBA
Millennials: Post hand check rule change to 2015 was peak NBA
Gen Z: Who wants to watch post play, 3s are the most efficient way to score

Game is too soft!!!
It's not REAL basketball if they're not beating each other with baseball bats like we used to back in my day.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

Guessing watching basketball with black people or watching basketball with gay people or hopefully watching basketball with females wouldn't be allowed.

This shouldn't either.


Haha Chuck's old -- just saving the OP the trouble
