Defense may win championships, but offense wins eyeballs. Fans tune into sports to see high scoring, fast paced competition between professional athletes of the highest caliber. That’s why the NBA players who have dropped that orange ball through that ten foot basket thousands and thousands of times are the ones who are remembered the most.
