Basketball is better than hockey
Debate Rounds (3)
This is not a serious debate. It will be light hearted and jokes/minor insults are allowed. No conduct points should be taken away for these things.
BoP is shared
All 3 rounds for debate
May the best sport win.
Limit 3 arguments per round + rebuttals.
I'll start off with some arguments.
1) Basketball uses a ball.
Ball sports are obviously better than non-ball sports, and a ball is a lot less dangerous than a puck.
A common hockey injury
2) Basketball takes less skill to play
Anyone can pick up a ball and throw it into a hoop, hockey takes skill and skating around on the ice is hard enough by itself.
Even kids can play. Fun for the whole family.
3) Basketball is cheap to play
All you need is a ball and a hoop.
Struggle basketball being played by kids. Minimal resources required.
As we can see, hockey is clearly more expensive, harder to play, and more dangerous than basketball.
1. It is full of fast paced action, as well as exciting hits and goals.
2. No one makes dumb comments about hockey, like "ball is life" for basketball.
3. Hockey players don't yell stupid taunts at each other like "brick city" or "biscuits"
First I'll address Con's points, then I'll add three more in favor of bball, the superior sport.
"1. It is full of fast paced action, as well as exciting hits and goals."
Basketball is faster. There is nothing more exciting than a cool basket, pass, or other play made, which happens all the time.
Yes, this is real life. It may seem to be too cool, but reality is intense.
"2. No one makes dumb comments about hockey, like "ball is life" for basketball."
In my personal internet travels I have seen many a hockey player say "hockey is life", or "GOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLL!!!!!!!!11!!!!1!!!1!!!"
" Hockey players don't yell stupid taunts at each other like "brick city" or "biscuits""
Trash talking is in the nature of basketball, and it is part of honored baller culture to say these things. I belive that this part of the game is extremely influental and hockey players could learn something from it. Also, hockey players fight while ballers use words.
1) Basketball players have cool jerseys to wear around
Many people wear these jerseys and become a part of baller culture
2) There's a good basketball anime
This reason alone should be enough to win the debate. Watch Kuroko no Basket and you will become a baller.

3) Shaqtin' a fool
I refer you to Javail McGee and Shaqtin' a fool.
