I dare you!
Euroleague provide a link? You'd have a better chance of getting someone to prove Santa Clause or the Tooth Fair actually exists before getting Euroleague to backup one of his bullshit claims with an actual link.

The idiocy in this forum is truly mind boggling.


the best basketball players in the world play two minutes more per quarter and all of a sudden they play less hard...

if they get more breaks like you say because of the 48 minutes, then they get more breaks and should play harder than people player 40 minute games...

god damn you are stupid.

That is the oldest link I've found to date of someone directly calling out Euroleague for habitually not posting links after he makes absurd claims that serve to overhype Euroleague players and discredit NBA players. Yes, that poster posting 8 years ago on some obscure Yao Ming fan site known as Ming_7_6 is ISH's very own Euroleague. With a history that goes back that far he may perhaps be the worst basketball troll in the history of the internet.

Just stop calling so many fouls,stop the commercial timeouts and check the replay only in playoff games in the last 2 min

Wonder how many sock puppet accounts this douche has. Seriously, going from infinity red bars to just 2 must have taken quite a few.

Default Re: NBA Considering 40 Minute Games, 3 Minute Overtimes

HS = ~30 games @ 32 min = 960min of play/season

College = ~36 games @ 40 min = ~1440 min of play/season

NBA = 82 games + up to 25 playoff games + 4 preseason games X 48 min = 5328 min of play / season

So for Andrew Wiggins next year his NBA season could be as long as the last 4 years of his career (Soph, Jr, Sr yr in HS + 1 year at Kansas).

OF COURSE the NBA season is WAY too long. It leads to way too much wear and tear on the league's best players. This is the cowardly way of fixing it since it should be ~50-60 game regular season spread out over 5 months (2.5 games/wk). But since they don't want to lose revenue this is what they are willing to try.
