Default Expansion?

alright, here it is

We all know that David Stern's tenure as commissioner has had an "international" trend. Talk of European expansion in the next ten years does not surprise many people including myself. But imagine the change in the already complicated process in making an 82 game schedule. And imagine the fatigue and jet lag the players will have to endure if this becomes a reality, possibly affecting the quality of play.

How is this going to work?

Who's for this?

I am strongly against it. I can barely fathom how it would work. And why add more teams and further dilute the talent of the league, and add a bunch of bad expansion teams? Most American players would not want to play over in Europe.

How is it different than European/Asian/South American/African/Australian/Canadian players moving to American to play?


The time zone differences are hard enough to overcome now, it would be ridiculous if the NBA went to Europe. Not too mention the amount of winter storms on the Northeastern Coast of North America, there would be a considerable amount of postponed games.

I think a team on Hawaii would be cool.

They should really think about fixing the ****ty markets they already have going before expansion.
