Does that matter? Who cares if Clippers or any team is happy? Build a better team. Warriors were a joke 5 yrs ago

I do not agree... if there were no ejections, fouling would go WAY up and kill the flow of the game.

The NBA is not hurting for money in any phase of the product...

You seem to have an idea locked in, so good luck with that. Fouling out is a critical part of the rule structure.

Not just teams - but all the support parts that come with it.

We'll see if something comes from it, but this is the down time in the NBA... not a lot of activity.

Its a complicated issue - travel, willingness of players to go there, prices, tv deals, ownership...

Again - if you can foul out, you are going to be more careful not collect fouls.

If you start making big changes, you can create new problems that may not produce the desired results.

Sure... but its all the other stuff. How fair is for Boston to travel to Portland, while ATL goes to ORL?

It stops teams from just mugging guys... if guys start fouling out, eventually run out of guys.

The idea of doing something tournament-like has been floated. I think Silver likes the idea of something like that.

Ehh.. NBA just inked a $24 billion TV deal, there's no reason to change. If you change, you can create a new problem

Not likely. There will be no expansion anytime in the next decade and no one is looking at relocating.

To reinvent the system - there needs to be a market driver. There really is not one. NBA has looked at this.

There are no business reason to change playoffs - games are watched, games are competitive, tickets are sold.

Again - creates huge logistical issues like Boston/Blazers matchup or all West Finals... cross-country not practical

This is one of those things that is change for change sake - not a huge reason to do it.
