Maybe The NBA Should Trade With The WNBA Season
Not sure where all the asking current NBA players about the length of the regular season came from or even why, It’s been 82 games for as long as the current players have been alive. They knew it was 82 games going in, it’s what separated college from pros, it’s fun watching some rookies ran out of gas in the second half of the season. You ask any retired players and they’ll tell you the current players are stronger, faster, and have methods that help them healthier and heal somewhat faster. Those former players will also add that the current players in the NBA are soft. Bitching about the length of the season proves it. As a fan it’s ideal because of football season but other than that it’s fine the way it is. Football bleeds into baseball and no one is screaming shorten baseball, people would like a quicker game but not a shorter season. People would be cool if football expanded its season. For some strange reason the players in the NBA want shorten their season.
I have an idea, why not trade seasons with the WNBA? Not just the season length but the number of teams as well. Let’s be real outside of any eastern conference team LeBron plays for the east is useless. Keep the western conference teams and let the d league keep those from the east. Shorter season, less teams. Allow the ladies to get a real NBA type season under their belts with 32 teams and I’m sure the women playing will not complain. It makes the fight for a championship that much more difficult. Give the WNB A the NBA schedule and have the NBA players in the summer. The WNBA has never really gotten the respect it should be given with all the talented players that play in the league. Why not give the women a chance at an 82 game season since the men are cool with not playing those long seasons. The NBA season isn’t long, it’s the fact that the league hasn’t taken advantage of their television contract. At one point TNT showed games every Tuesday and Thursday with TBS...Source: The Collective Conscious
