Yes it is entertaining. The way you throw untested and unproven statements and allegations. Although NBA [looks] like the best quality in the world, this still means nothing. Of course they can call their champions World Champion, Sun System Champion, Galactic Champion or whatever they like, but still its just a word and gives no credibility to anyone except the domestic public, which so easily buys such cheap P.R. tricks.

Again, the same example: the English FA Premiership.
"And, in case this isn't clear enough, it's not just [England] competing, it IS the world." <-- there are players from dozens of nationalities in the Premiership; the Premiership contains the largest capital among all leagues, when you take the value of all its clubs combined; the Premiership hosts the largest number of players who are playing for their national teams, and the biggest representation on the latest World Cup; etc etc etc.

"The battles are staged in [English] cities, sure, but the players in all [English] [football] come from every corner of the world to play here. <-- this is true, too. But does it mean the English champion (now, Chelsea) is the world champion? NO WAY. They're not even a continental champion, let alone a world one.
