I have a love for sports. You can call me a sport fanatic. The NBA and NFL are the two most watched sports in the U.S. I have played both sports and I can say that I love football way more. They are totally different, but at the same time they have similarities. They include physical contact, a goal, money, and players. The ways that they are used are just different.

The NFL and the NBA are two extravagant sports. They are both interesting and enjoyable to play and watch. They both have many options to compare and contrast. Features of the two sports are both alike and different. From the money and players to how the game is played shows how they are alike and not alike. They have many...
