What do you suspect will happen?

What records do you see falling?

What teams do you see moving?

Do you believe there will be an expansion?

A change to the draft and lottery system?

Do we see someone have a greater legacy then Jordan?

lol, please

Hopefully no expansions, major franchise locations moves, or changes to the draft, lottery, or playoffs systems. Jordan will still be the goat. Shaq and Bird will still be criminally underrated on PSD. The Lakers never recover and stay an average team at best. Lebron wins no more rings. The warriors build a dynasty. The Wolves, Hawks, and Raptors become perennial contenders. The Sonics come back.

I trust Adam Silver to keep the NBA solid, maybe even improve it from when he got it.

Seattle deserves a team..Based on what? I would love to see the SuperSonics again, but why does Seattle "deserve" a team? Does Detroit, Atlanta or Washington, D.C. "deserve" a team?

Because they never should've lost their team to begin with..

50 years is a loooong time, however if I were to make some predictions...

-European expansion
-Lottery reform
-Playoff bracket reform
-Increase in season length to reduce back to backs for at least nationally televised games (potential reduction of preseason)

I won't make any predictions as teams go. There's simply too much random stuff that can happen.

I agree with all of the above but I think the season length will remain the same and the amount of games will lower.

Also, adverts/sponsors on jerseys.

Would you be able to elaborate on European expansion and Playoff bracket reform?

50 years is too long a period to speak of. Maybe the NBA will disappear because everyone can be freaking athletic thanks to the advanced technologies. Lol. Just kidding.
How about 10 years? I see new teams in other countries. Maybe Europe and China.

Maybe because Seattle once had it, it deserves another chance. Just like a man deserves another chance to win back his girl. [emoji41]

In 50 years stat geeks will be playing in the NBA. Controlling the bodies of athletically superb cyborgs electronically from the privacy of their couch. Until the day of revolution led by the great wise old hobbled Kobe and his George Jefferson looking assistant Pappa Lebron......

Newer iphones, that's for sure.

The NBA will expand, teams will be added to other major cities and struggle. The talent pool won't evolve fast enough to keep up with the # of teams. The speed of the game will change, because I see football having a downfall and the players that would normally be in the NFL may make it to the NBA.

The draft will be funneling players into the NBA's own developmental league which will be cool but nothing like the minors in baseball.
