Top Ten.
1. Suns
2. Lakers
3. Rockets
4.Thunder
5. Celtics
6. Nuggets
7. Magic
8. Mavericks
9. Raptors
10.Kings

Houston at 3? I like watching them when they play on TNT and all, but I'm not so sure they should be three. Lol Cavs @25. I think 1 could be a tie between LA and Suns, both are fun teams. Not to sure why the Bulls are last. I rather catch a Bulls game then Nets, Minny, Cats.

Haha, how the hell are the Cavs #25??

LeBron on his own makes them a top 10 team to watch and then you add in Shaq and they are comfortably top 5.

But what do you expect, the guys a Wizards fan, no way are they as high as 13. I would much rather watch the Hawks, Clippers, Grizzlies, Spurs, Heat, Hornets, Blazers, Sixers, Knicks and Bulls over them.

The guy deserves a serious :facepalm:

Lebron by himself should make the Cavs top 10.

Maybe he doesn't like LeBron because he's a wizards fan.

WITZ
12-15-2009, 04:46 PM
Hahaha 25 ......I think his decision was more influenced since he admitted he was a wizards fan but that probably has nothing to do with it :pity:

Rockets aren't top 10 for me to watch...they don't have any star players. Nothing exciting.

If you like team basketball and guys playing hard, then the Rockets are fun to watch.

Most teams give a team effort and play hard, nothing new.

The Warriors would be more entertaining if they didn't have the worst announcers in the NBA, and actually had their bigs healthy to keep them competitive. But in general, I'd say they're by far the most entertaining team to watch in the NBA. Monta himself and Morrow when he's hot from 3 is a seriously amazing show.

I definitely think the Warriors should make top 10, I enjoy watching them play especially at home in Oracle.

Also I'm glad the Cavs aren't in the top 10, because really that "team" is crazy boring to watch. Yes, LeBron is entertaining, but I would fall asleep otherwise.

Rockets are more run and gun than normal, but no way are they #3.

nice to see my rockets at 3, but cleveland at 25 seems silly, but i havent seen them in any tight games either so what ya gonna do.

for the guy who likes watching the rockets 'when they're on TNT and stuff" mmmmm yeah im gonna have to go ahead and point out that the rockets were awarded with ZERO,ZILCH,NADA,SQWADOUCHE total nationally televised games, so you may have to base your opinion when they play your local team, but for those that get to watch this team play each night, its really fun, even when we lose, the team scraps like crazy and im pleasantly surprised not to have to listen to all the vultures in here.

:sigh:

Maybe it wasn't TNT. Idk its either ESPN or something, because I have seen Rockets games, not only talking about this year but last year too. They easily play the hardest out of all NBA teams. Good team basketball. But #3 is to high IMO. Maybe top 5.

Verbal Christ
12-15-2009, 07:11 PM
nope not ESPN either, im telling you bro ZERO (0) nationally televised games this year, and this years brand of basketball is nowhere near the halfcourt game it was in years prior. we're like 3rd or 4th in fast break points, with no 'star' on the team.

I'm a huge fan of LeBron, but that said, I think the Cavs are won of the least entertaining teams; too many isolation plays for LBJ (as a result of bad offensive coaching, not LBJ ball-hogging).

As for teams I liek to watch, I like team basketball, lots of extra passes and solid defense, so my fav team to watch right now is the Spurs (and I loved watching the Pistons during their finals runs). After that, the Lakers, especially when Gasol and Odom are working their interior passing, then the Suns; I swear every other game I watched last season featured the Suns and it was always entertaining, though I haven't gotten to watch them yet this year. After that Boston (that series against Chi-town in the playoffs lasst season was the best playoff series I've watched since the 90's! Then Denver, I love the team ball they were playing last year, and Chauncey is one of my fav players, and the Birdman reminds me a lot of Jerome Williams, lots of energy on the floor.


1. Spurs
2. Lakers
3. Suns
4. Boston
5. Denver
