They already have the most imporant part of a league...THE PLAYERS....essentially THE CONTENT. Some TV deals, arena deals, sponsorships, investors....it'll take work and take a few years to work out the kinks, but ultimately better for players in long run.


Think differently.

Its legally impossible. It can't happen.

Without having to go into all the legalities, it would end up in court and the NBA would win.

It's called being realistic.

The "really smart business types" would know how risky it is. Period. There's a reason it hasn't been done. There's been scandals, expansions. Stern is universally hated by the basketball fans. A ref went to jail for fixing games. You don't think it hasn't crossed the minds of people like Marc Cuban? There's a reason why nobody has seriously attempted.

You are sooooo far off with the players being the most important part. It's like a car. Every single part plays it's role and is needed. Look at the offseason, the drew league and all these games. There's your talent. You need established refs, venue's, scoutings, medical staff, a commish who's ran a league and knows what he's doing. You'd have the same questions of player salaries. Good luck getting everybody to agree on that in a brand new league.

Owners and players both need eachother. Like I said earlier people downplay the value of an organized sports league. There's a reason why people don't go out and make there own MLB|NBA|NFL.

You just need to actually think. You don't think the NBA isn't going to do anything about it? They would cave there lockout. Owners would be handing out contracts within minutes. The NBA has 30 franchises. A new league? Be lucky to get 10 teams to start off. Good luck getting investors to throw there money into alot of these markets, esp with NBA teams to compete with from the start.

A practical reason why this cant happen is that the NBA has the rights to pretty much all the arenas.

They wouldn't get a TV contract of any value either, as a large network would ruin their relationship with NBA in doing so.

Players would leave, but then other players would stay and vote in an agreement. Including the best players, who would get 1/20 of the salary they would get in a new league compared to even the worst case scenario with the NBA.

@ there being so many risks. The teams appreciate at about 7-10% in bad markets in a bad economy. The only hard thing would be to come up with the capital.

This country has already had 2 basketball leagues competing against each at the same time. If a new league could get all the superstar players to defect away from the NBA, then the NBA would be completely dead.

The superstars would rather play for 30% BRI in current league than the income they would make in a new one.

30% of BRI is 1.2 billion. You think a new league would be worse than NHL?

You're absolutely clueless.
