I agree that it used to be better but now it sucks and its no fun to watch a bunch of unskilled whitle boys try to make a ball in a hoop. But a bunch of girls in tight shorts jumping and hitting a ball. Whats better than that and I have proof that in the past year volleyball viewers are more than basketball viewers so there is no way b-ball is better thatn v-ball

Well in the last year B-ball has been centered around lieing and cheating ref's. Due to that one ref who bet on games and no doubt be on the game where the suns lost in the playoffs. Volleyabll doesnt have cheating refs and they really cant have them because there's no way to cheat. Basketball has dropped greatly in the favoirtie sports of america and volleyball is making a rise.

THEY CHEATED it was all over ESPN They caught him and he quit as soon as they brought it up so im pretty sure he cheated. Volleyball is a pure game with no national problems. and I cant name u and basketball teams in the phillipines alaska etc. u kno why B-BALL ISNT THAT POPULAR I had made it seen numerous times in this debate that U have no clear reason why a lieing cheating game like b-ball is better than a pure fun game like v-ball

You can tell men rule the NBA: the uniforms get baggier and baggier while the cheerleader outfits get tighter and tighter.

Con had a very good point. Volleyball girls and their little shorts are much better than basketball uniforms.
