Default Only half a season would be worse than no season.

I know that even with half a season we would at least get to watch some NBA but I don't want it because I know I wouldn't really count the winner of that season as a real NBA champion even if the Bulls won. I really don't want a shortened season. I'd rather there be no season at all.

Why wouldn't you count the winner of that season? 99 spurs championship has no value to you?

So you really don't like basketball, you just want your teams victory to mean more in your mind.

It just takes away from the meaning of the championship. If a team wins during a 50 game season, no, I don't count that team as a champion. I don't count the '99 Spurs as champions.

You're the only one who doesn't.

Playoffs are what really matters.
Until there aren't "shortened Playoffs", I am happy with any kind of regular season.

If you win 16 games in the playoffs, I'm going to count you as a real champion. The regular season counts for more than most say, but shortening it doesn't invalidate the eventual championship team. Sure, circumstances of a shortened season would hurt some teams more than others, but all 29 teams that lose each season had some set of circumstances that kept them from winning.

What would you think if the NBA decided to shorten every season and only have 50 game schedules? Would all future titles be invalidated to you?

Every team plays the same amount of games.

People always bitch how long the NBA season is... real excitement is not there until the playoffs, blah, blah, blah...

A shortened regular season with normal-length playoffs would be just as fun and prestigious.

Anybody who actually followed the 99 season considers it a real season and the same would be true for 95% of NBA fans if it happens this time. The shortened season actually poses more challenges for teams, because its more physically demanding as they try to cram more games in a shorter period of time.
