Give us a scenario that will make the NBA very interesting after the 2010 off-season?

I would love to see a scenario play out, that will have Lebron go to NY, Wade to L.A, Melo to the Bulls, Bosh joins lebron in N.Y and somehow the Celtics add Durrant.

Imagine a Christmas day game featuring (Lakers) Wade/Kobe vs (Knicks) Lebron/Bosh @ Madison Square garden...and (Bulls) Melo/Rose facing (Celtics) Durrant/Rondo and the 3 wise men @ Boston T.D Garden....

We can add a steel cage and for every jump ball called, those 2 players have to fight a 3 round fight for possession...

We can have naked women do the announcing...

We can create an expansion team in Mexico and make their starting lineup CP3, Wade, Melo, Lebron, Dwight.....

I think Durant to Boston would be bad for the NBA.

Why would Durant want to downgrade by going to Boston? Those fools are hanging on by a very thin thread.:D

A lottery for all the teams. Start fresh by having all players participating. That would be something! hahaha

Lower the hoops to 7 feet so Chuck Hayes can dunk, play with 2 basketballs, the naked women announcing thing, and more Mike James!

Easy.

1. Shot clock of 3 seconds; clock does not stop on changing possessions - Just imagine the scoreboards if this is implemented! A field goal of 15% would be considered excellent!!

2. Every 3 ball dribbles, the player with possession is required to make a pass; a TO is recorded and possession is switched to the opposing team in case the pass is not done - Just think about the possibilities on this one, the game becomes much more team oriented. Guys will pass it all the time otherwise they will TO the ball to the other team. Right on.

3. Only dunking rule; layups, jump shots and 3pt attempts will not be counted; hail maries at the discretion of the referee - WOW!!! No commets.

4. Touch and go rule; any one player is only allowed to hold onto the ball for 2 seconds max otherwise a TO is recorded and possession changes to the opposing team - If you are a fan of the Phoenix Suns style of play then you're gonna LOVE this.

I hope you are incredibly high right now. Because those are some of the worst ideas, not just in regards to basketball, but in regards to ideas in general I have ever seen.

I think we should add a "Civil War" game to the All Star game.

SOUTH
PG: Jason Kidd
SG: Steve Nash
SF: Dirk Nowitzki
PF: David Lee
C: Andrew Bogut

vs.

NORTH
PG: Chris Paul
SG: Kobe Bryant
SF: LeBron James
PF: Amare Stoudamire
C: Dwight Howard

Go South! :laugh2:

**** yeah, hooray for racisim. Nothing would make the NBA better like revving up racial tensions. Awesome idea!

We should also pay white guys more, give them better locker rooms, and have a more comfortable area of the bench for them. Their shots should also count for more points, and they should get 3 steps.

You forgot getting white refs as well, so the white team can never lose.

and we should probably segregate the crowd. White can sit in the lower deck, minorities can sit in the upper deck.

I think they should disband bad franchises, 1 from each division

Minnesota, New Orleans (Take your pick between GS, SAC or LAC), NJ or Tor, Indiana (Yeah sorry guys, the whole using the pennants as KKK hoods back in the 90's says you dont deserve professional basketball in your state) and either Washington or Charlotte...

Take all these players from these teams and re-draft them to the current teams, Worst record picks first and so on and so on..

This is how you make the league more competive and more interesting

Have the franchise with the worst record in the league eliminated from the NBA every year, starting in 2012 to give teams some time to build and also get the apocalyptic theme rolling. Start with 30 teams then begin narrowing down the league until there are about 16 teams left and then have a league-wide redraft with the original 30 teams (every 16 years).

That would create serious tension. I guarantee there would never be a team winning less than 20 games a year again, because they want to remain employed. Not only would this make the NBA much more entertaining, it would thoroughly eliminate tanking, several times over.

Fantasy is a bad thing

To actually answer the question. Make playoff series' best of 3, remove star treatment. The NFL is interesting/exciting every year because you just don't know who's gonna make it to the Superbowl but in the NBA you can predict.

I believe Jerry West supported the idea of doing away with the poor performing teams. I think it's a great idea for the NBA but bad for the cities that would be losing their home team. The league is too watered down.

exactly, teams with poor revenue, poor attendance, teams that are just trying to make a profit.. There are too many bad teams..i say the MLB does too

Re-draft the entire league. The draft order should be based on your franchise's success in the postseason. The Clippers, by rule, are allowed the first two overall picks, but unfortunately the Clippers curse will strike when Lebron and Dwight both have serious career ending knee injuries that will then ruin the entire league. But it WOULD be interesting!

1. Add a hockey goalie on a trampoline in front of each basket.

2. Allow tackling.

3. Install a special flash camera. On every dunk, cheerleaders/dancers flash the home audience. You can, of course, set your cable box to blur out the unmentionables.

4. At halftime of each game, viewers get the chance to win a player's game check.

5. Download real time transcripts of all "smack talk."

6. The other halftime raffle: win a date with a player's wife/girlfriend.

7. My personal choice: Every time my team scores, I score with the Miami Heat Dancers.

Yes i know he lost weight but he got paid 10M last year just to play 3 games, and is about to get paid 11M just for Playing less than 20 games (If he plays at all)

nba is the only league i know that worst teams don't go to one level down league(i don't watch other american sports).all aroound the world,this is the system and its pretty competitive...you can see worst teams beat the best ones to get rid of elimination at the end of seasons,they all play die hard.

Let's see, how about more shots during the game? No not with the ball, alcoholic shots. Like tequila shots. Each team's players must do one shot before the game starts. And one at the end of each quarter.

Come to think of if, we might as well make it so that everyone has to take a shot. Coaches. Cheerleaders. Announcers. Fans (except kids- that would be crazy)... even the mascots. Maybe doubles for mascots and PF/C's.

The games would be much more fun to watch...
