Look at Shaq... Dominant, arrogant, had a personality, showed it on the court, made it entertaining in many ways.
Same thing for Kobe Bryant. Allen Iverson, shooot, even Tracy Mcgrady.
Now, you have an emotionless and dull Kevin Durant who is a brilliant b ball player. A Lebron who tries so hard to be the "good guy" when he should embrace his "bad guy" role...
A Derrick Rose who is another amazing athlete... but not much else. What I'm trying to say is, these "new stars" and the ever changing rules of the NBA that is "softening up the game" is just making it that much more boring. Emotions aren't allowed to be expressed as much, everything is a technical, fights will get players tossed and suspended for many games.. I have a much better time watching an old crippling Rasheed Wallace and his antics then I do Durant draining amazing threes... (I have Kobe for that )

Totally. Except this thread was made and this subject was brought up well before we were even eliminated.

It took a 3 OT game for me to be like that game was interesting. (Chi/Nets)
