Really, the brand of basketball being played by a multitude of teams is just horrendous and the injuries are piling up. Star players aren't getting the same numbers they did last year.

There are so many games and barely any practice time or rest. They didn't need to play 66 games, they should have cut it to like 55 or 60. It just didn't make sense.

They should have stayed locked out to save fans from horrible basketball.

Would have liked to hear your tone if the Knicks were doing better.

Stop it my fellow Knicks fan. Just stop it! This season has an added twist to it and you see new teams emerging like Philly, Indiana, and Denver who are deep enough and athletic enough to benefit from the lockout. And the same old teams are doing well outside of the Celtics and Knicks just have been a disappointment thus far....key words 'thus far'.

As a raptor fan I can't wait for this season to end.

So because a select few teams are playing extremely poorly, while others are emerging as heavyweights, there shouldn't have been basketball? Seems like a really selfish thought to me, simply because the Knicks are having a very poor start to the season. Find some other teams besides NY to watch. Be a fan of basketball, not just one team.

I hate when people say this. It doesn't make a difference. They are professional basketball players..they should be prepared to play, and conditioned to play regardless. And not much should change, other than a few less reg season games.

It'll be funny when the people complaining about it will try to put an asterisk next to LeBrons ring hes gonna win this year

Absolutely not!!! Relax guy by playoff time I'm sure you will change your tune when Dantoni gives your stars a lot of time off before the real fun begins.

I somewhat agree that the should have made the season about 10 games or so shorter though it's pretty brutal for teams to play a lot of nights 3 times in a row on almost a regular basis but it also gives me a lot of basketball to watch ;)

Kobe's been probably the most impressive player, and he's older than most of the other superstars by like 5-7 years. So if he can do it this early, no excuse for the younger guys

I don't think losing a hole season would be anyones best interest no matter how bad the play is

No doubt the quality of basketball has suffered. I'd be lying if I said I could've waited for a shorter season.

You just saying that because the Knicks suck with their so-call new look.

Such silliness! Don't blame it on the condensed schedule. It has an impact, sure. But I enjoy being able to catch my favorite team every other night and the games at least started as very close and competitive.

Ask yourself: "if the Knicks weren't playing so poorly, would I complain." I don't think anyone will be surprised by the answer.

I don't know why Knicks fans are so concerned, with all the changes they should be content where they are, things are going to get better.

The Bulls have one of the best records in the league and I think the league's play (including the Bulls) has been garbage compared to last season.

Haha True.

But I mean think about it...if your the NBA....do you risk throwing away a whole season...and the consequences it could have on your fan base...or play 66 games and have the effects that not be as drastic?

And you swear David stern cares about the players. He is probably like you all got yourselves into this mess you deal with the the consequences. (in this case injuries)

I love the regular season and post season, cause when the offseason rolls around it just feels so long and boring after free agency is done.

I can't imagine all the whining if they were still locked out. Injuries are piling up, but that doesn't excuse everything. Horford is done for the rest of the season but my team is still out there battling every night.

exactly... this season is more about hustle than talent ... except if your team is very deep and talented LOL
