this is a really good idea. Im also a fan of football (soccer in the us) and tournaments like the champions league and fa cup always brighten up the season half way through. I think a cup competition will do the same in the nba cause after the start of season hype wears off theres not much to look forward to until near the playoffs. it can also be a good way for nba to test out new potential rules like the 4 point line

@ok why? Name a bad team to win the Super Bowl. I will wait. Because since the merger, the worst team going in has never won the championship. There is a reason over those 4 games that the bad team will lose eventually, whether that be in wildcard or the Super Bowl. Because eventually their opponent isn't going to play bad. We saw it with Carolina vs Denver Superbowl. Carolina was definitively a bad team, made it to the Super Bowl, and got completely demolished by Denver. There is a reason the 16 has never won march madness. One and Done formats favor the better team, but give the ability for the worse team to win, where in best ofs it would require a miracle for a 16 to beat the 1 seed. Despite that, in the history of the NFL playoffs and March Madness, the worst team has always been eliminated at some stage. And we are talking a very long time of history here.

The idea Silver has for the draft tournament is *waaaaay* different from how you describe it. The cycle of suck in your example with the Knicks is too strong of a worry to implement that system, so Silver is proposing that the teams with the worst records get the higher seeds. On its own that doesn't change anything, but Silver is also giving higher seeds round byes in order to give the teams with poor records a floor. The biggest issue, however, is how you deal with pick trading. Right now teams who trade their pick away need to play better in order for the traded pick to be less valuable. In a tournament style draft, if a team trades away their pick and gets into the tournament, there is absolutely nothing stopping them from intentionally losing in order to prevent an opponent from getting a high pick.

Love the tournament ideas, but for the draft they could randomly draw names for the seeds of the bottom 8 teams. They could use the ping-pongs for that. Then it be up to the teams who gets what picks. Picks 3 and 4 based of who lost a but with more points between them. 5 through 8 the same thing for their tier.

Great Video! I like Adam Silver throwing out new ideas. Soccer developed into the worlds most popular game by having both a league champion and a cup champion. More sides get bragging rights that way. One thing I need to say is that retaining is the seven game series. People are most glued to their tvs during playoffs and entire cities are entranced for at least two weeks when their team is playing in a series. Make all the changes you want to the regular season but don't lose that.

I only want to see a plan tournament for the draft picks/final tournament seed. If you shorten the games it doesn't do much for the fan that is a fan of one specific player if he gets hurt 20 games into the season. Also, I think that the concept of being in a bad place in sports when nobody wants to try already exists in mediocre and non playoff teams.

Here's how I think the draft picks should go(in my opinion): everyone that didnt make the playoffs should get to play a game against the next worst/best team. These game would be the 30th worst team vs the 29th, 28th vs 27th, 26th vs 25th, 24th vs 23rd, 22nd vs 21st, 20th vs 19th, and 18th vs 17th. However, the teams that made it to the playoffs would get a draft pick depending on their seed. For example, if the 8th seed in the east has a record of 41-41 and the 8th seed in the west has a record of 40-42, then the team in the west would get the better pick (the 15th pick).

The season should have three phases(a little bit similar to this season): It starts as usual but after 60(or 50 or whatever) games only the top 11 of each conference will stay for the rest of the regular season and playoffs. The other 8 teams will have "mini playoffs" - and the winner will get the first pick of the draft.

these are all good ideas, i agree with all of them, i always thought the mlb, nhl, and nba seasons are too long and hard on players, i have always thought they needed to shorten them, with that said, the players would be getting less pay, but, the owners would make a way for them, by passing the buck on to the fans for higher priced tickets, therefore, the fans would be ultimately screwed, which "could" possibly lead to a lower attendance, ultimately getting back to the players and owners losing out. notice i said "could"? with rabid fans, they still would prolly pay anyways to get their fix, meaning, their priorities in life are backwards if you value sports more than your living expenses. lol.

I like the idea of a single elimination cup mid-season. I dunno what the benefits of that would be. I'm not sure how the end of year tournament would work with all those complications. But I would like them to keep the same format for the actual championship. And I also don't like the idea of the mid-season cup determining seed placement in the end of year playoffs because the reason why 1st seed plays 8th and 2nd plays the 7th is so that 1st and 2nd meet up in the finals and creates the most suspense.

I agree, this is an excellent idea. But I wouldn't necessarily think cutting the league down to 70 games would translate to a direct 15% paycut for the players. As you hinted on, the shorter season should allow fans to watch more of their team, the ticket prices would probably go up a little due to the supply/demand of tickets/games available. With fewer games, potentially higher tv numbers per game, I don't think the players/sponsors would lose out as much as 15%. Heck with the tournament idea for draft seedings, it could create a lot of new buzz and sponsorship opportunities for teams that would otherwise hardly have any media attention focus on them at that point. I think its a win win

One big problem with the end of the year tournament would be teams with an injury. For example lebron only played 55 games last season and the lakers did poorly. But I think they would crush those other teams. Also what happens if rights for a top pock get traded. Would the team who traded for the rights get to compete. Like if golden state trades for an unprotected first rounder would you then have the champion get the number 1 pick. If not then the team who traded away the pick would intentionally lose as to not help that team. Seems too sketchy.

Oh wow, I forgot about these. But I do remember them. (regarding the Legends game) I've been suggesting tournaments like these for years. And a tournament at the end of the season to help determine draft order.

After seeing this video many times and it just popped up on my recommendations again. I just realized that the nba can prevent super teams from happening. Imagine because of the tournament to fight for the draft picks, in the off season every team will be prying for an all star player because they dont want to lose at the tournament therefore reducing the chances for teams creating a superteam since those all star caliber players will not reject a max contract

So you're going to wipe out the fact that a team is bad and they already can't win games you put them in a tourney they can't win they don't get a good pick and stay trash forever while a mid tier team on the cusp gets better terrible idea that's like saying the knicks could beat a mod tier team and get the pick they badly need but it's the Knicks so they'll lose never get FA or picks and never get good great idea keep a large market team dead and lose millions in that market awesome

Then the 9th place team would tank to try and get to 8th place to play in tournament, it almost makes more sense to have a 14 team tournament to divide into only two categories: playoffs or lottery tournament.

Well, it's not a terrible idea... but not a good one... think about this... now teams that are fighting for the 8th seed, will actually be fighting for the 9th place cause they'll want to be the best team of that tournament and get the number 1 pick... so, by that logic, this year Luka Doncic may very well have ended up with the Nuggets for example... and teams like the Hawks, the Bulls, the Cavs will be forever bad because let's face it... when you're that bad you can't win any tournament... not even a one and done... On the other hand every bad team will try to play their best basketball possible... but I think the mid tier teams will exploit this tournament A LOT...

How? The worst teams out of 8? Wouldn’t the best team win most of the times. They jus suck the least compared to the other teams. Bad idea. There’s a reason why some teams are soo bad they don’t have the talent or staff.

As someone coming from football and rugby in Europe and moving to watching the NFL anything more than 40 games has always seems way too much, same with multiple game series, I've always preferred 1 and done games, ye it's more unpredictable and the best team may not always win but that's the fun in sports

Draft tournment is amazing idea. Like playoffs after the playoffs. The best will really come out of all players. But ofcourse, there should still be a trophy

@ESPN First Take G league rosters might be a good idea. Or giving more incentives for the players to win. Either way they need to balance it out so nobody is discouraged from enjoying the game because someone will come take their job.

@GOLD I agree with you, but this type of behaviour is inevitable because it is human nature, the commissioners job is to forsee and balance these types of incentives.

@Pool Soup although an unrelated problem I see is decent teams (like 9th or 10th seed level) who know they're not going to make the playoffs trying to tank their way into the 8th worst record in the league so that they can cook all the lottery teams and get the top pick

Vor 3 years

@Pool Soup ohh I see. I wonder how that would work actually. I assume the tournament would be seeded based on record, not on who has the pick, so I think the lottery team would still play for the pick, even if it would be transferred to another team immediately. that would raise a different problem though, bc a team that owes its first round pick to another team would have no incentive to do well in the tournament bc they won't get the pick anyway. which would basically mean trading for unprotected first round picks would be pointless bc the team ur getting the pick from has no reason to try in the tournament. I don't think this would happen that much though, because normally teams protect their first round picks like 1-15 or something if they trade them anyway. lottery teams offering unprotected first round picks is very rare and that's the only case where this would be an issue either way, I don't think the tournament would be seeded by who has the pick, I think the idea is it's just the 8 teams with the worst records in the nba

GOLD No I mean like, think about all the Celtics with all the nets picks. They’d be one of the best teams in the league, and they had lottery picks, and would compete in the tournament, where they would have huge odds over everyone else

@A It is still 8th pick guarantee. Cavs tanking the draft tournament will only lost them the value of their draft picks in futute trade deals. And the Warriors in a lottery system also don't have 1st pick guarantee. I think teams wanting to raise the value of their draft picks for trade deals are better guarantee than random luck.

@Zukorlić Orhan (In reply to Hylind) But that literally defeats the reasoning of the draft tho! If a 47 win team gets a player like Zion and a 17 win team gets Coby White then why even have a draft? The whole purpose of the draft was that so bad teams can get better by drafting young and talented players..

Its easy.....do what baseball did, and make the All-Star game COUNT. The winning conference has home court in the NBA Finals. I know its a bit shocking at first, especially if your team leads the league with 65 victories, and don’t have home court, but get over it. MLB teams play almost every day for nearly six months. Sure, the games aren’t as rough as the NBA or NFL, but the day in day out grind, has to he brutal.

Totally love the end of year tourney with lottery teams playing for their draft position. All-Star game tourney - I'd love to see the NBA champ as well as current best team in the league play in a mini tournament against a few of the best teams in Europe (let's say Spanish and Italian champs). It would add intrigue internationally, and help either cement or create debate on many levels (which style of basketball is better for the fans...how does the Euro team team do against the NBA's best, etc).
