    I think the NBA wants to set up an all european NBA. Nothing to do with the NBA here in the US. So teams here don’t have to travel all the way to europe just to play games. They have their own thing there. Like the D-league. They have their own thing. It’s good cos it’ll be much easier to scout the best player. And marketing wise is good for the NBA.

    it wouldnt be fair to teams traveling in for games… those long hr flights… unless maybe they get a 2-3 days rest… before games…

    Didn’t the NBA tried to expand to Canada with the Vancouver Grizzlies and the Toronto Raptors. Well, the Vancouver franchise was a nice, short lived dream and well the Raptors, I think they are hanging on by a thread.

    Not sure if they can expand into Europe.
