Change the All-star game from players representing their teams, to where they are born. In Australian Rugby League we have the State of Origin game where players can only play for NSW or QLD if they were born there. However it gets a bit problematic when you try and include players from other states or countries.

So in the NBA they could have an east vs west hemisphere competition. That way players always play on the same team no matter where they are in the league, and they are representing where they were born. Right now East vs West is pretty meaningless.

Todays players are so big and athletic I would alter the width of the court by about 10 feet. I think the length is okay as it is. Raise the rim to 11 feet and push the 3 point line out by 2 feet. I think it would open up more flow to the game as the midrange game would become more prevalent and the court would be less congested.

If not the above, then make the game 4 on 4.

I kind of want to agree, but the only problem with this is it would strongly favor point guards that had big men who shot high ft%. Better way to implement would be to give 0.5 assists for every pass leading to FTs, so we can still determine who the best passers were independently of the teammate's ft%

Also it should be quite possible over time to catch up with the last 30 years or so I'd imagine -- re adjusting old stats

Relegation would be interesting in the NBA.

Bottom 2 teams of each conference gets bumped down to the D-League - Top 4 teams of D-League gets chance to play in NBA.

This won't work because players can currently move between d-league and nba team fluidly. But if you expand the idea it might be interesting..

add 4 teams here and 4 teams from europe, then divide the league into A league and B league with 20 teams each, two conferences of 10, same 8 team playoff, 2 A teams who miss playoffs move down, teams who play in finals of B league get the spots.


"A league championship game 3 -- OKC at London"

also -- "Can Kyrie Irving get Cavs out of B league? BECF game 6 to follow"

I don't think an assist should be rewarded but it should be a sort able stat. On hoopsdata you can sorts assists by FG zones, so they should probably track assists that leads to FT's, not sure how hard that is and I believe some teams already have statisticians who track things like that.
