Travel won't be a big deal but how many big time FA's will leave America to play in England or France? I just don't see it happening.

and keep them separate until a massive ASG

Established teams wouldn't let the USA just take over basketball like that.

Montreal to me deserves a team, it's the biggest market in North America that doesn't have an NBA team (it's much larger than many cities that do have teams), and with the growing popularity of basketball in France, it would be a great middle-man for French fans to gain interest in an NBA franchise

but with Stern's massive powers of corporate takeovers, shouldn't he be able to do it anyway? and then as his product becomes more popular, he phases out the Euroleagues and then incorporates their best playeurs into his system?

I think the NBA would get a bad reputation if that happened....I don't think it's possible with all the money involved and the backlash of an American world takeover of professional basketball.

Do you lecture MBA students at Wharton?

Tell me more about Stern's "Massive Powers of Corporate Takeovers" I didn't know he had a side job.

BTW for all the posties out there who said Van Grizz had poor leadership lets just remember the fact that Stu Jackson, the NBAs senior VP of operations was the Grizzlies GM and President of BBall operations. He is a highly respected man in the NBA and if Vancouver couldnt make it work with him on board dont expect the NBA to go running back there anytime soon.

I love Vancouver, but they blew it.

merely a thought. no need to get so sensitive. anyway, back to the OP's thoughts, establishing a worldwide integrated league will not only be cumbersome, but also immensely difficult on the players to travel around the world.

Vancouver is a great city, and I was sad that the NBA didn't work there. Maybe they can place an NBA in another Canadian province, such as Quebec or Alberta. How does the Calgary _____ or the Montreal ________ sound?

Dude are you on crack? Stu Jackson sucked azz as a GM, the dumbb azz drafted PG's 3 years in a row and made Reeves the first pick in franchise history. Then he traded Francis for a package that was headed up by Othello Harrington. Jackson is a complete fool. Who the f..ck respects Stu Jackson?

The NBA head office people who hired him and made him VP of Operations, the same guys who decide on expansion.

- Why would an American want to move out of the USA and play so far away from friends and family?

NBA fans in China and in Europe can just purchase an NBA TV package, no FA's are going to want to sign out in Europe, the whole concept is ridiculous and I wish Stern would keep the game here.

Please tell me how I can watch the nba in norway? becaus I cant get it now

Times have changed, Winnipegs economy is much better now, as well as Quebec City and Potentially an Alberta team, either Calgary or Edmonton.

God you're a fcukin idiot. Why don't you tell us about this new fancy commercial airplane technology that will allow us to go from New York to London in three hours? The god damn Concorde couldn't even do that. Dumbass.

The travel impact would be lessened with special scheduling. There would be maybe five European teams, and when American teams went there, they wouldn't play one game and leave, they would play a bunch of games over two or three weeks. The European teams would likely shuttle back and forth only a few times during a season.

It's useless though, it will never happen in any of our lifetimes. There isn't a single city outside the US or Canada that could support an NBA team, let alone five or six.
