Default NBA Considering 40 Minute Games, 3 Minute Overtimes

They will be testing it in the D-League...

Yay or Nay?

I'm not for or against it personally.

Hell no. So much of the NBA history has been made with the game being 48 min. Records would not mean the same thing if they changed.

They should do the REVERSE in the D-League.
Make the games 60 minutes, which would get more minutes for reserves. And that would help development of players.

40 minutes does the opposite - it limits minutes for players who need to develop.

In the NBA, keep it the way it is.

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

A 40 minute has LOTS of repercussions.

You don't need a deep bench because a starter can play 35 minutes easy still. Would you even need a 15 man roster?
Mid level players won't get paid, because they aren't as important. Less overall playing minutes to go around.

The problem isn't the duration of games, it's the amount of regular season games.

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

Terrible idea. If anything they need to reduce the number of games played, without shortening the season. I don't want to see teams play back-to-back road games, period.



I'm okay with shortening OT's in the REGULAR SEASON to 3 minutes. For the PLAYOFFS, I would actually like to see the first OT be 6 minutes, second OT be 3 minutes, and the final OT to be DO or DIE (first basket wins), or maybe 60 seconds.

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

I don't really like the 3 minute overtime idea, but 40 minute games are 10 times better than 48m minute games.

48 minute games absolutely suck.

40 minute games flow so much better and have so much of a better natural game rhythm. The moron that came up with 48 minute games ruined the sport.

Not to mention that watching NBA games at 48 minutes with all the commercials and timeouts is excruciating.

And of course the NBA could make tons of more money if the games were 40 minutes long, which is amazing those idiots just now figured that out.............

You are such a moron. 40 minute games are much more intense than 48 minute games genius. You have to play the bench way more in a 40 minute game idiot.
