Default Pre season competition

With the off season being so painfully long why doesnt the NBA start a preseason knockout competition.

Basically all 30 teams compete if you lose your knocked out.

Round 1 - 15 matches leaving 15 teams
Round 2 - 7 mathes of round 1 winners (team which wins by the most in round 1 gets a free pass)
Round 3 - 4 matches
Round 4 - Semi finals
Final

You could play 3 matches a night and the comp would last 3-4 weeks, to fill in the offseason

Give the winner a trophy and a cash prize and i think teams will embrace it.
They should be allowed to play anyone they want eg Summer league team or full roster.

You could even modify the rules a bit to make it a bit more of a spectacle.

EG once a team gets its 5th foul in a quarter the have to play with 4 men the rest of the quarter, A powerplay!

One player on each teams points count for double BUT the opposition coach nominates which player, No doubt the least talented player will be chosen but will the offense incorporate him more to get double points.

I'm bored silly!

The offseason is painfully long??? Get outta here...it's the regular season that is too long. These NBA Players are human beings who have children and families they need to see as well. It's hard enough for them to try to have normal relationships with their children and wives, and you want them to play even MORE? There ain't no way the NBA union would even listen to 1 second of any "off season league" kinda talk.... this dumb idea does show how much of an NBA fan you are though, since you seem to be missing the action a lot.

Hey c'mon now,

1. I said teams could use summer league rosters if they wanted...It would just be more exciting if a monetary reward and a yearly trophy was up for grabs

2. 15 teams would only play 1 game, the max the winner and runner up would play is 5, over 4 weeks..hardly arduous.
