    I kind of prefer lowering and hardening the cap, spreading out the talent more and making it harder to build super teams. Make it a league of smarter, more team-oriented planning rather than stacking up stars in coastal cities. I think adding a couple teams would only help in that effort, while growing the NBA's revenue through creating new markets.

    only 18 teams have won a ship. 8 out of those 18 teams only won once. 4 of those teams were St Louis, Baltimore, Rochester & Seattle who are in other cities now, and have not won since. that makes 14 teams in the league today that have won in 74 years.

    12 franchises have never won an NBA title. Instead of expanding the league, maybe figure out how to have better parity, other wise youre just going to add teams to that list who never win. I dont want a watered down league any more than it already is. If anything Id rather take a couple teams away and spread the talent out better.

    Its just so the league can get money upfront, not bc it's a wise move.

    The league is about money. If they make money it's a wise move. They dont care if the product is watered down or not.

    Financially speaking short term and long term makes sense. Talent will catch up, it always does. Management on the other hand is a different story.

    BTM FDR? What the heck is that? Still money talks and whether is 5 yrs or 10yrs talent will catch up. Look at Curry and how he changed the game and look how soon the players that came after him came into the league. Dont blame the talent blame the management teams for not building teams correctly.

    Bottom feeders lol

    Bro, expansion teams are always at a distinct disadvantage. Whoever team 31 is gonna be bad for a long time, at no fault of their own. Depending what city they're in, could be in purgatory forever.

    NBA should be looking at contraction not expansion.

    Miami and Toronto were expansion teams. And again follow the money. They won't care if those teams are good or not as long as it brings more revenue for the league.

    100%.
    Got a buddy who works in an NBA front office and he's been saying this for years. As he's pointed out many times, after the first few selections in any given draft it often becomes a crap shoot.
