2019 NBA Catch-All - It’s Fantastic

And all the Sonics references on Frasier make the show seem really dated now.

Expanding to Seattle and another city while cutting down to a balanced 62-game schedule would be pretty much perfect.

The players and owners won't like the 10-15% cut in their earnings/revenue to get to that point (and the regional sports networks will probably revolt) but after how last season went for Kawhi and Toronto I think everybody's going to be load managing their stars for 10-20 games. Better to cut those games out than to let it fester and damage the product/brand.

Not to mention the Warriors...

I'd actually be ok if it got down to 50 games, plus a Champions League type in season tourney.

You could run 10 games/mo, Nov-Mar, then playoffs Apr-Jun. Save the miles on the players, an enhanced product, and just charge fans more. What, am I NOT going to buy League Pass with a slate of must-watch games? Nope. Mimic football and have scarcity drive up prices. A quality NBA product would do that.

They'll never go that low. Maybe 75 games or 70 if they do a mid season tournament for something. Personally I prefer they don't change it.

Amazing.

My favorite part is Harden heading to the locker room first.
