The NBA. I Hate This Game.

As much as I hated the NBA lockout, I have probably enjoyed the NBA season to-date even less.

I guess this is what happens when you're the fan of the league's only (still) winless squad. This was supposed to be the year Washington Wizards fans saw the light at the end of the tunnel. The teal and bronze uniforms are gone. John Wall was supposed to take a Derrick Rose-ian leap forward. The rookies were all supposed to be immediate contributors. Blah, blah, blah.

2 weeks into the season, the team is currently the league's laughingstock with a 0-6 record. They typically dig themselves a huge hole in the first quarter and spend the rest of the game playing catchup. They've trailed by 30+ points in most of their games. Some of the games haven't even been competitive at any point. It's pathetic, sad, and borderline depressing.

The funny thing for me personally is that when my team is losing, I lose the desire to watch any NBA games, period. It would be like a guy who just totalled his car being forced to ride the bus, and watching all sorts of nice cars drive by. Hope that analogy makes sense. If it doesn't, well, who cares.

I've had to watch this all season, I deserve a pass.

Actually, I don't deserve a pass, I deserve an actual NBA team to cheer for.

Cause so far, this is some bullsh*t.

Question: Do you find it hard to be very interested in sports when your team of choice is struggling?
