to Stern cuz fuck that guy...but
The gimmicks are getting a little tired. The All-star game is more silly than it has ever been, the play-in tournament is meh at best, and this mid-season shit would be fucking stupid.
The NBA has a great product...they should have more confidence in said product.
Make the regular season more important by requiring players play x amount of games to be considered for awards/all-nba teams, throw more money at teams that win standings, etc.
And start financially punishing teams that are perpetually bad. Like, if you go 5+ years without making the playoffs you should start losing your share or some shit.
Try little tweaks like that prior to changing shit up completely.
