I don't mine dubs, I just think certain series are better off without it, and KnB is one of them. I'm guessing for me it's because the genre, and the amount of characters.

I can't say that it should never be dubbed but I know that I don't watch dubbed anime. Therefore, whether it is dubbed or not will have no effect on my personally

YES. I've never wanted a series to be dubbed as badly as Kuroko.
It's probably my favorite series. I love the Japanese, and their voices, but dubbing it would mean I could finally own the DVDs without a region block, and more people would see it, and just yay more Kuroko! A dub would give me a new way to experience it as well, and I want another excuse to watch the whole thing through.
If it came to North America...just....arghhh yes!

Uh, god no. Has anyone seen the Free! dub? It was a freakin' abomination. Not letting them take Haikyuu or KnB next.

Only popular anime can get dubbed with ease. If it's that popular, then it might as well should. I do watched dubbed anime sometimes, so I guess there's a good amount of professional voice-actors than ever before.

Most of you dub haters are too narrow-minded see the dubbers, especially the more experienced ones, for who they are and what makes you guys think a possible dub for this show is gonna sound awful in like Naruto, huh? I also have another question, what the heck do you guys know about acting?

Try watching the Free Eternal Summer dub Funimation churned out of their stinking bowels. Some of Funi's older dubbing jobs were relatively good, but Free ES is just an abomination, they put "DUDE" and "BRO" in there, that's almost outright Americanization, the only funny part is how bad the script alterations are.

If they get ahold of Haikyuu or KnB they can do the same crap. Not all the voices are very fitting in the Free! dub either, the only ones who i remotely care for in the dub are Makoto and Rei, etc. Lately a LOT of dubbers have just been picking up the popular american voice actors without giving any MIND to how well their voices will fit the roles in the show compared to the original version.

Funi did have some good dubs but they're not without the abomination that was and is Free eternal summer which really is a testament to how much dubbed anime has gone downhill. The VAs sound apathetic as hell to me lately in their roles, bored even. Like they're watching paint dry. Maybe it's because I always end up watching subs first, but I miss the good ol days when dubs like Ouran were around, and they were actually watchable.

As time has passed, dubs have been on a decline, because American and western adaption companies have been far more focused on their business module for stuff like simulcasting and buying the rights up to the subs, so dub production has become a far lower priority because of how impatient everyone has gotten, and the fact that most people watch the subs first. The demand for simulcasting and streaming services are higher and gives companies like funi more subscribers and money than DVD buyers, so their dubs keep getting worse because it's clear to them that subs are what everyone really wants to watch at first.

Now, if streaming services ever go on a decline, they MAY start improving vastly because DVD and bluray sales may increase, but until then, I don't expect most dubs will be anything beyond borderline decent or subpar at best. Most streamers are NOT watching dubs, especially when it comes to new anime.
