    David Locke started calling games in Seattle--would the....no they wouldn't.

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    I do like it but I don't think it could happen unless (or until) Senator Kohl sells his team like it was rumoured earlier this week.

    Casino owners having cash flow problems? That's always strange. I know they are probably involved in about a million other things too, which I'm now curious enough that I'm going to go look up. Remember when they were sort of thought of as being in the same league as a Mark Cuban type "hip" owner but a family of them though? Man, that faded fast. They have basically been non-players outside of all the rumored franchise moves.

    Pshhhh who do you think Adrian got his info from?
    That's right.....Jazzfanz.

    Coincidentally enough, Adrian's not high on Al Jefferson and Foye.

    This is a pretty good one but calling a division with Utah, Denver, Milwuakee, Minnesota and Oklahoma the "Northwest Divsion" is kind of silly. Perhaps the "Midwest Division".

    If I were the NBA, I would scrap the 6 division format (which nobody follows anyway) and go back to the 4 division format (Pacific, Midwest, Central, Atlantic). I could care less if the Jazz win the Northwest Division. All I care about is if they make the playoffs. The Top 2 teams from each division make it automatically to the playoffs, while the final 4 playoff berths in each conference go to the 4 best overall records in each conference. Here is my alignment:

    Western Conference

    Pacific Division (8 teams, who all come from the Mountain and Pacific Time Zones (Pac-12 Country))
    Denver Nuggets
    Golden State Warriors
    Los Angeles Clippers
    Los Angeles Lakers
    Phoenix Suns
    Portland Trailblazers
    Seattle Supersonics
    Utah Jazz

    Midwest Division (7 current Central Time Zone Western Conference Teams)
    Dallas Mavericks
    Houston Rockets
    Memphis Grizzlies
    Minnesota Timberwolves
    New Orleans Pelicans
    Oklahoma City Thunder
    San Antonio Spurs

    Eastern Conference

    Central Division
    Charlotte Hornets
    Chicago Bulls
    Cleveland Cavaliers
    Detroit Pistons
    Indiana Pacers
    Milwaukee Bucks
    Toronto Raptors

    Atlantic Division
    Atlanta Hawks
    Boston Celtics
    Brooklyn Nets
    Miami Heat
    New York Knicks
    Orlando Magic
    Philadelphia 76ers
    Washington Wizards

    Wiki them. I thought the same thing so I wiki'ed them a year or so ago. They pretty much inherited a ton and have always ****ed up/lost a ton of what they've had. Terrible businessmen from what I recall.

    That would be bs. If they did that, eventually one division might do terrible, only having one team in the top eight...

    1. Oklahoma City Thunder
    2. Los Angeles Clippers
    3. Denver Nuggets
    4. Portland Trailblazers
    5. Golden State Warriors
    6. Los Angeles Lakers
    7. Seattle Supersonics
    8. Utah Jazz
    9. San Antonio Spurs

    What would happen in this scenario since it would be the top two teams in each division, San Antonio would automatically be put in the top four and Utah would be pushed out of the playoffs. I assume that would be a pretty large controversy. Also, quite often a team or teams would be pushed out of the top four and have their home court advantage taken away. It should always be the top eight teams from each conference.

    What they really ought to do is just remove divisions completely. They're pointless...

    All finishing in the top two of your division would do is guarantee you a playoff spot, not a top four seed. Seeding would be determined by record.

    I see. But still... It seems pretty useless having two divisions with an uneven number of teams. I could see it if they were to add two expansion teams but god knows that's not what the NBA needs right now. The way the playoff system is right now is just fine. If they were to do anything, aside from a realignment, removing divisions completely would seem the most likely. Then again, that's just fixing something that's not broken.

    This is a complicated move for both Seattle and Sacramento, who gets rights to the Kings history? Seattle won't want it, they will want their super sonics history back which I'm sure OKC will be more than happy to give back, Oklahoma wants nothing more than to get out of being the sonics shadow, this is their chance to completely break away and finally be their own franchise with no attachments to anything but Oklahoma. But then sacramento's history risks not being acknowledged and essentially dead until they get another team which could be years away... I feel bad for sacramento, it's vs and I couldn't imagine how upset I would be if something like this ever happened to the Jazz...

    Perfect opportunity to create two extra teams for Vegas and St. Louis.
