Default Re: LeBron James supports contraction of some NBA teams

While I believe the NBA would be stronger minus 6 teams, I'm realistic enough to know that will never happen, because when you contract a franchise, that puts 12 players out of work (and we know the Players' Association will never tolerate that), plus that leaves coaches, athletic trainers, and front-office executives without a job. Not much complaint there, but there are the ordinary people who work in teams' offices, the vendors, parking attendants, and other people who work at the local arena during home games, etc. And with the economy the way it is, you almost have to keep the NBA at 30 teams and just bite the bullet of watered-down talent for now.
