I agree. I can't stand watching basketball specifically because of the insane amount of time it takes to play the last 3:00 of a close game. You get a 20 second possession, maybe a basket, then a timeout, a commercial, then another possession, then another timeout and commercial, then a foul, then a video review, then free throws, then a break between the free throws for substitutions then another timeout, and on and on. 15 minutes of real time go by and you check the clock and it hasn't even been a minute of game play.
NFL football is almost as bad. Timeouts, out of bounds stoppages, incomplete pass stoppages, booth reviews, and omg, penalties on every other play nowadays. Now they can review Pass Interference so things are only getting worse. It's horrible. College football is worse since they stop the clock for every first down. A team can run a full drive in like 1 minute in college. I've stopped watching them and moved more to Hockey, Soccer, and other sports with fewer breaks.
