    Bravo! There can be no other reaction. Same thing for the change in timeouts.

    The league has made some very good decisions this summer.

    Now all they have to do is reduce the regular season to ~75 games and be done with it.

    So how many pre-season games does a team play and does training camp begin a few weeks earlier. I would think the union would have an issue if the players had to work a couple of extra weeks without compensation.

    I've always wanted them to start season in December and have the finals start after the 4th of July.

    I think it's now 5-6 games, no longer 7-8. I know we have one game against OKC on October 3rd in Tulsa, OK.

    Yeah, warning to you: reported for spamming the same irrelevant video in multiple threads and multiple forums.

    Bad, bad behavior.

    Agree mostly but I would say they also need to get the first round back to a best of 5.
