    We have 4 of 6 preseason games against division opponents. Why would the league want us to play teams we are going to see 4 more times? I mean Memphis back to back WTF?

    Can somebody explain this to me?

    maybe it has to do with distance and teams not wanting to travel across the country for preseason games.

    not sure

    Let's see they have Hawaii preseason games, China preseason games, Europe preseason games...

    They should have Australia preseason games.. I would so be all over going down there for a week.

    I haven't had the time to check other teams but is consistant that a team would play mostly division opponents in the preseason? I would think that you wouldn't want to give the opponents extra opportunities to see your offense, especially since we have a new system.

    As a fan I would rather see teams I will see less during the season like Chicago or Washington or maybe the Celtics. I really don't wanna see MORE memphis and spers.
