View Full Version : Ideas on making the in game experience better for the average NBA fan?

I recently saw that the NFL is going to start bringing cameras into the locker room but this footage is only to be seen by fans attending the game. I think it's a horrible idea and an absolute sham to the players. I would hate to see that in the NBA.

But for your average fan who attends the game, what are some cool things teams either do already or things they could do to spice things up a bit?

I enjoy the basketball so that's enough for me but I thought we could toy around with some options, whether realistic or absolute fantasy.

One crazy thing I thought of was that they could play on a giant fish tank with sharks swimming beneath. You have a clown that sits in what would essentially be a dunk tank and if there was ever a half court shot or buzzer beater top shot, as soon as it goes in the clown gets dunked into the shark tank haha.

On a more serious note, I think it would be cool to hold a giant lighting game at halftime for whatever section gets their number called, rather than those mundane halftime shows (don't get me wrong, I've seen some amazing ones but the majority are boring). This gets people more in touch with a cool experience and would draw fans just for the sheer chance of playing lighting at halftime.

2/10. usually troll threads like this can be somewhat funny, but this was a sad attempt with no laughs produced.

What is a troll thread? Can people not have genuine/fun conversation around here without berating users? I really don't understand.

While this would obviously get more people to the games, $$ doesn't have much to do with the actual experience unless you're so broke you can't buy a beer or you drop big bills to sit court side.

A clown dunk tank? Tell me again this isn't a troll thread SMH :bang:

Here's an idea, the NBA doesn't need any gimmicks to make the experience better. Seeing an NBA game live is fun enough.

Although, some boobs every now and then would be nice.

Like I said, I was having some fun. The people who post on this forum are some of the most pathetic people I've ever seen always trying to bash somebody. Grow up and if you don't like the thread, ignore it.

Get rid of the stupid isle vendors that do nothing but obstruct the view. I don't want a 20 dollar beer, now please go kill yourself.

I don't know why people are bashing the OP. That scenario that he suggested was silly but it's a legitimate question for NBA fans and officials to consider. I'd like if it they constructed outdoor arenas in the future. I know they had them in the past but it's an exciting feature. However, if I'm watching an NBA game featuring superstars such as LeBron, Kobe, Wade, etc., all I care about is them playing hard in a competitive game. Everything else is just a bonus. It's a damn sporting event, not a clown act.
