    Cause it looks like anyone can do it.
    Compared to other sports where there's an amazement factor whether it be the size, speed, athleticism, or difficulty of the sport.

    These dudes aren't big and fast like football players.
    Aren't giants with crazy athletic ability like basketball players.
    Nothing looks difficult on TV like hitting a baseball.
    Its just a blah television product that looks ordinary af.

    I didn't say anyone can do it i said it LOOKS like anyone can do it.
    Endurance doesn't make for amazing TV. Check the Olympics during the distance events. Built in shytter break. :unimpressed:

    Bounce a basketball 10 times and then try doing 10 kick ups and see what's the harder thing to do :mjgrin:

    Hockey will never be popular because its a cold sport that alienates majority of the country, and its dumb expensive to play.
    The best thing to ever happen for hockey popularity in America is rocket power having street hockey

    Soccer is actually growing in America. Why do you think so many cities want an MLS team.

    I played both. Basketball is way easier to pick up. You have players like Olajuwon, Embiid and Siakam start ball as teenagers and make it right to the top.

    America doesn’t really support sports they don’t invent or excel in

    Idk what a kick up is but I can guarantee it doesn't have the amazement factor on TV of a nikka doing this [​IMG]
    Cause no matter how hard anyone practices majority of the people watching can look at this and say ill never in my life be able to do this.
    Amazament factor.
