Basketball Playoffs

I know a lot of people are excited about the NBA playoffs which are now underway.  The only reason I will check the scores is because the Pacers have made the playoffs this year.

To me pro basketball really has no rules.  The referees don’t ever call traveling.  If you are a star, you will never get charging called on you.  The only time there is strategy in the game is the pivotal game in a series.  Otherwise, it is the “stars” who shoot and the others must pass the ball to him.

I am still a purest when it comes to basketball.  It is supposed to be a game of 5 on 5 with plays, defense, & strategy.  I fail to find any of these in a typical pro game.
