Default Re: LeBron James supports contraction of some NBA teams

It is a fact some teams are struggling not only on the floor , but to break even.
Problem is the NBA has made the game more available without leaving your house.. not putting fans in the seats.

I don't think contraction will happen , some teams more than likely will move ,, but the next NBA contract should get the owners some control of what is happening with salaries and players cuts at the gate.

I think over all the lux tax has been a help.

let me put it this way , if a Development team was in my neighborhood I'd be watching them probably every night ... will the average fan take up that dedication - doubt it.. but the idea lebron was stating of giving a better product for the fans and make teams more competitive are worthy facts the Commish and the NBA HAVE TO DEAL WITH.
** One thing is for sure , Stern has to get the idea of getting a team over in the UK out of his head.
Basketball is global - but the NBA doesn't have to be.

The league really IS too watered down. Look at the schedule most nights and over half the games are completely unwatchable. So many of these teams are made up of 19 and 20 year old "prospects" and journeymen never-was'es, and they're all just out there fumbling the ball around. I've seen so many mind-numblingly sloppy games this season. On a given night you could have Sacramento playing Minnesota, Charlotte playing Detroit, New Jersey playing Toronto, Cleveland playing Washington, and Philadelphia playing the Clippers. That's absolutely horrific.

If you removed Sacramento and Charlotte, you could add Gerald Wallace, Stephen Jackson, Tyreke Evans, Carl Landry, Jason Thompson, Tyrus Thomas, DeMoron Cousins, Muhammed, Diaw, Augustin, Udrih etc. to the other bottom feeders and at least make them a little better, and also eliminate some of the awful games that pop up on the schedule each night.

I think the fans should try to push this to the league and make it known that this is something fans want to happen. I know it will suck for fans of a few teams, but let's face it, if you're in the bottom 2 in attendance there's not many fans to upset.




I agree with Starface.

whats the point of the playoffs if every team makes them?

the real problem the NBA has is parity and that would only become worse if contraction happens

I for one disagree with eliminating teams. I don't want to see quality guys like blake griffin, tyreke evans, kevin love etc have to be relegated to a sixth man role or somethinng similar to what were seeing in miami. There's plenty of talent to go around.

What you guys want is parity. And what parity does is not eliminate bad teams, it eliminates great teams.
