Sure, you "corrected" me if you want to call it that go for it. We traded back in the first round what once in the last 20 years and maybe 3 times overall? How many times has Hurney traded up for project players that never pan out? I'd say that happens just about every single draft. So again you the people who are clamoring for a trade back to acquire more picks might want to go root for a different team because this one simply does not do it
1- Get rid of conferences in playoffs = pick the 16 best teams.. with air travel as good as it is nowadays on private jets etc. it's not like it was back in the 80s and 90s where west coast/east coast trips were crazy..
2- Not sure of the solution, but the way the monitors are used for replay in NBA games is just the worst. the stoppage of play now at the end of close games sucks all the life out of the arena and on TV.. have, in essence, a "shot clock" for the refs.. you get 24 secs to review the replays angles available and if you don't have the definitive call - the ruling on the court stands..
3- Gotta get more parity.. it improved a lot this offseason with the split up of the Warriors - but seriously there are only 3-5 teams still fighting for the NBA title (LAL, LAC, HOU, MIL, BOS).. why do the bad teams stay the bad teams and the good teams always stay the good teams?? probably goes back to the 1st RULE, huh?
