college

The NBA is pretty entertaining put college hoops is better. In the nba people mostly only watch there favorite teams, put with college ball theres alot more teams to watch causing for more exciting moments. And plus i think March Madness is way better than the nba playoffs. HANDS DOWN!!!!!!!!!

Yea college is much more

Yea college is much more intense and I can watch a college game all the way through, but an NBA game takes until the 3rd or 4th quarter for the teams to start competing at a high level. I like college alot more in terms of fan experience

The NBA just because you

The NBA just because you know its the highest level, and you know everybody on the court has great talent, most college players dont even make it to the NBA

I thought the NCAA

I thought the NCAA tournmanet was really boring this year...Most of years though it is exciting. I prefer college over the NBA but I have to admit the pro playoffs this year were entertaining. I just wish we all would've seen a Kobe vs. LeBron final. The NCAA tournament was boring this year for me because I really knew what was going to happen (granted there were some minor surprises). There were no huge upsets and I knew UNC was going to win it all. They were clearly the best team. I like years when it is really a toss up between a bunch of teams as far as who is going to win it all. Of course I love to see upsets too.

NBA over College for 1

NBA over College for 1 reason. The Defense is better. As a former HS player, I would rather watch and imitate Kobe and Lebron rather than #28 for Sacramento State.

NBA

There is no doubt that the NBA is the better of the two to watch cuz it simply has to be due to the fact that the NBA is the best players in the world. College is fun to watch cuz you can watch all the draft prospects and a few rivalry games here or there are good but other than that the NBA runs all over college bball.

Defense

To Knicksboy34: That has more to do with the level of competition, the defense is alot more intense in college than the NBA.

Actually it isn't. The use

Actually it isn't. The use zone to hide the fact that most players in college can not defend some of the better and more athletic players one on one. This does make team defense stronger in so sense but if you are that good there is nothing a team can do other than put 4 men on you like they did Stephon Curry
NBA has better defensive individual players. This does not always mean that system is great but one on one the NBA has the best defenders. I like college during most March Madness tournments but the NBA for overall. You have the best players doing their thing. This years playoffs were incredible

Exactly. The fact that they use zone defense because of athleticism (or lack thereof) has to do with the level of competition. In the NBA games I watch players take alot of plays of on defense, but in college rarely do players take defensive plays off, thats why teams hold each other to around 60-65 ppg in college but in the NBA they average around 90-95 ppg in scoring defense.

sheltwon- i made u a mod on

sheltwon- i made u a mod on my site so you can post things now!

But I think College ball is more slower and you have a "coach-controlled" game. You can take a Freshman out if he makes a mistake. In the NBA, the best players play and the others get sporadic time. Also, the competition level is closer.

I mean every year we see like UNC vs Radford or like Kansas vs North Tennessee State....boring.

College over NBA. There's so much intensity and tenacity in College along with the Cinderella stories in the NCAA Tournament.

The NBA in the past 2-3 years have become an isolation game, offense has become more stressed while defense has not. Hence why we see many NBA teams averaging 105+ PPG.

NBA over College. How many

NBA over College. How many times have you seen top 25 teams vs cupcakes. How many times have you seen top 25 teams stop playing starters at like halftime?

The Reason the NBA's scoring went up is because there are more scorers then lockdown defenders.

College

I love watching the NBA because the player's skill set is so damn good, especially perimeter players, and this year's NBA playoffs were awesome sans the Finals but Conference Tournaments leading up to and the NCAA tournament is hard to beat in my opinion

nba

is better. But the first week of the ncaa tournament might be the most fun of any sporting week of the year. The first game to tip off of this last tournment saw Cal State Northridge lead memphis throughout until the final minutes and that was exciting as hell.

i generally like college better

but i found the tournament this season 2 be pretty boring. I mean i like college more becuase they play defense which is rarely seen in nba games. they have passion and actually try whether they are gettin destroyed or winning by 20. the NbA is fun 2 watch also tho. the playoffs this year took the NBA to another level i think and we got to see some of he best basketball since Mj's days

College is more intense

College is more intense because of the fans and each game means a lot. You get upset, you can drop from 1 to 10 or something. Just like college football.

I like the NBA better. In college, it's mostly about the coaches. In the NBA, it's about the players. Both have their positives and negatives... I just like the pros better.

The NCAA Tournament is the best basketball in my opinion

the Memphis vs. Northridge game had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

College. Definitely. It's a

College. Definitely.

It's a lot more intense, for one thing. I mean, imagine if EVERY NBA player was always in the play-offs, during a contract year - then you might begin to approximate how much college players want to play their best and win every game. Every game matters in college for two reasons - first, you have to win in order to make the post-season, and there are fewer opportunities to build a lead in the standings; second, you have to play well on a nightly basis in order to have a shot at getting to the pros.

For another thing, the experience of going to a game is infinitely better in college ball. When I go to NBA games, sometimes I don't even realize when play has resumed from a time-out or a whistle - that NEVER happens when I go to college games. The fans are more into it, the bench is more into it, the band gets everybody hyped - what does the NBA have that could possibly compete with that? A small section of lunatic nut-bags and some cheap synthesizer music every once in a while? The two simply aren't comparable in this regard.

Finally, March Madness. It's self-explanatory.

The NBA is tremendously entertaining - don't get me wrong about that. But it's simply not as good as college ball.
