Cancel the NBA! Please!

NBA please cancel yourself! I don't believe in cancel culture or censorship, but if you want to do it to yourself please do! I love basketball and I can't wait for the NBA to be canceled. Why? Because of mathematics! Because I hate the way the NBA plays basketball. All they do is walk from three-point line to three-point line. Boring! It's old-timer basketball at the YMCA.

When I played basketball, we fast-breaked all the time! We were always running and gunning, going from rim to rim! It was true full court basketball. Showtime was the dream. 

Remember the legends of run and gun basketball? Dr. J? Showtime with Magic Johnson? James Worthy? That was great basketball. Remember Pistol Pete Maravich on the fast break? Or John Havlicek. That was unbelievable. Even Charles Barkley, the round mound of rebound, was more fun to watch when he was on the fast break than anything I see today. That Barkley truck could move!

Today's NBA is slow and boring like an old timer's league. We need to play 4-on-4 full court because of mathematics.

The math says if you take two 7-footers off the court you'll have a lot more room for running and gunning. You will have more dunks, alley-oops, and highlights than ever before! You will be freeing up about 100 ft² of space! 

I agree with you! And from a business standpoint, the NBA Monopoly is ripe for being taken down. It's time to do it!

It could all start with a reality TV show about a startup that wants to start games and leagues playing four-on-four full court. Or as I have noted before three-on-three, two-on-two, or one-on-one! And those could be played with Covid-19 recovered players.

Why are we still playing today's stupid slow game?

We have everything we need today to start a brand new league to compete and drive out the NBA. We have social media. We have sports fans everywhere with cell phone cameras who can video the highlights! We have everything! We also have a better product. We have run and gun basketball!
