Many people have wondered what would cause the death of the NBA and while many people have theories, the fact is that the NBA will most likely be around for a very long time. Regardless, sbnation.com wanted to end the NBA for good, and what a better way to do it than to reduce the NBA to "an unwatchable, miserable experience in which the notions of self-respect, good ideas, and effort go to die." He was able to do just that. He chronicles his genocide of the NBA in his amazing article, "NBA Y2K: The Death of Basketball".
Basically what he does is create a full draft class full of created athletes, all with the worst attributes possible. All of the draft class is 5'3, 145 pounds, and has a rating of "F" in all categories including shooting, passing, rebounding, defense and awareness. After each year, when the draft rolls around, every team in the league has no choice but to draft these awful players to their team. As the years go on, the NBA legends like Dwayne Wade, Lebron James and Kevin Durant all retire and the only players that are left are the awful players from the draft class. Needless to say, the NBA becomes an unwatchable circus as games have to go into 12 over times just to end with a score of 3-0.
Eventually, The Association mode can't take it anymore and ends the game. Also, it appears that Barack Obama has became a tyrant as 40 Years later and Barack Obama is still in office.
This was one of the most amazing things I've read in a long time and I was in tears I was laughing so hard by the end. All is lost.
