If you want to discuss basketball, by all means start a thread and discuss it. I am sure most of those posting in the political threads will also enjoy the discussion.Since very few basketball threads are being made and this is probably an important time in our nation's history, many want to discuss it. Nothing wrong with that.My guess is starting mid September, there will be countless basketball threads to enjoy.
I donít ever post in the political threads, but two observations:1. The fact that is a basketball site is what makes it such a good place for political discussion. Most political sites these days are hopelessly one-sided echo chambers where people just hear things that reinforce their views, no matter how wacky. But here, people come from all across the spectrum because something other than politics brings them here, so you see a whole range of views. Most other political sites would be well-served to have that diversity.2. As an obsessive follower of politics, i find the discussions here to be as civil and intelligent as it gets, especially given the range of views. I frequently learn things here I havenít seen raised anywhere else.
I agree with the lack of other things to talk about this time of year, but, does everything in the world have to be about Trump? We essentially lynched Nixon, so I understand not liking a politician or whatever, but, I follow sports to get away from that yack. It was equally unbearable when they wanted to impeach Clinton. You should have seen it. 24/7 Clinton b--w--jb talk it just made you turn off the TV.Sometimes, I think the mass of anti Trump sentiment just helps him.
