The players of today, are not the same as the caliber of the talent of the past.
INSIDE THE NBA not BROUGHT TO YOU BY HYUNDAI

The talent is there...but there's to many damned teams...30!!! so it's spread out...and LOTS of guys have jobs who wouldn't if the league was smaller (same way hockey went). Plus, it doesn't have a 'media center' team such as L.A., New York, etc....and as far as the major media is concerned, there is no middle to America, just east and left coast, so that has hurt also. Then, we spring Kid Dork on the world to sing America the beautiful!!!! William Hung has more singing talent!
And the officiating although fair to both teams, has allowed theatrics and diving flopping to reach all new levels. In past years, only the few and the brave drove the lane...'cause you just knew you were gonna get knocked on your azz. Now, we see Tony Parker/Ginobili/Billups, etc.. playing as though they're in their driveways...and nobody knocks the hell out of them.
Lastly, Bill Walton and Hubie Brown are the WORST announcers/color men like EVER! front runners totally, and no sense of humor, or in depth analysis. These guys could make the recent Tsunami seem like a spring shower, if they covered it! Wish TNT covered the finals...
