Just a shitty showerthought that I have when people say the NBA is rigged and or scripted is that isnt it just a movie. I know this sounds crazy but hear me out. When you watch a movie you know that everything has already been written as a script but you are still excited to know what happens. You still experience emotion during certain parts of the movie and jubilation during the exciting parts. - Think about things like Lebron leaving the Cavs and then joining them again to win a ring. - The Golden State Warriors who had been nowhere in 20 years forming a dynasty - Lebron James coming back from a 3-1 deficit against the GOAT regular season team. Even if the NBA was rigged/scripted would it even be that bad?
Yes because one of if not the biggest appeals of sports as an entertainment product is nobody knows for sure what will happen even as you watch it. The fact it would be predetermined would ruin the visceral reactions you feel to your team winning or losin

If I knew if was scripted I wouldnt watch it
Wouldnt it still be exciting in a way though, you dont know whats going to happen. Its part of the emotional journey. In the movie analogy would you not watch a movie because you know that there is an ending.
But its not real , you know? This is true reality TV, its real pain and anguish when players lose on a buzzer beater. No acting performance can beat that
Refs can make calls in favor of one team that can influence the outcome but they still cant make the shots go in.
A movie is wack if it’s as predictable as the Warriors winning the last 2 seasons (this season too). The 3-1 comeback would 100% be an amazing movie though
Steph Curry is a mary sue! SJWs ruined the sport!!!
He never earned those skills... When are we gonna have a 17 hour long scene that shows Steph learing how to hit 3s??
Disney just trying to push their lightskin princess agenda fucking shame
