    NBA Cup for Midseason?

    ESPNSteinLine Marc Stein
    RT @GwashburnGlobe: Adam Silver said the league is considering the idea of a midseason tournament, similar to soccer. Interesting. #nba


    OK, not only soccer ( in fact soccer cups ( like f.a cup in england or Kings cup in spain) work a bit different)

    In most european countrys their basketballs leagues ( for example spanish league or Italian league) play a Cup tournament.

    They make a break around february and march.
    Choose one city as a seed.
    Take there the top 8 teams on the standing at the break.
    And have them play a 3 round tournament 1/4 Semifinals and final. ( march madness style, you lose the game you go away).

    This tournament is highly regarded by fans , media and players. Not as high as winning the playoffs ( or the euroleage) but still makes people proud that their team wins it.



    So.
    Apply this to nba.

    Say when teams get to the 41 games mark competition stops for a week and the best 8 records ( regardless of conference) get to play this tournament.

    Like it or not?

    mmm

    lets see

    22 teams would still play only 82 games ( those wich dont make the competition)

    players in this teams get an extra week of rest.

    4 teams would play 83 games ( eliminated in 1/4) and get an extra rest of 4 days.

    2 teams would play 84 games, ( eliminated in 1/2)

    2 teams would play 85 games , the winer and the runner up.

    Doesnt seem too much to ask for them.
    Just start the league one week earlier.

    What's the point? What would be the incentive to win?

    seems like a new way lebron haters can try to discredit him with (if his team loses)
    Hey Kobe, text me something man, I’ll text you back something witty.

    For players? a money reward
    For teams and the league? money from tv.
    For fans? another REAL trophy to hope for and brag about when won.

    Cups have been played in the rest of the world for decades and ara an important title too.

    I reckon a Pre-Season NBA cup would be better.

    This is terrible. It might work for soccer teams because they have huge rosters who can put out two different game rosters and no salary cap. More games will just cause more injuries.
