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.............
How the hell does it "flow much better"?

He didn't, but if you try every hole, eventually you get it right by accident.

Because it does not have a whole bunch of game stoppages because you get a lot more time for advertising because there is less game time to be played.

Even a retard could grasp that.

You went to school on the short bus, obviously.

I'd rather not reset the statistical standard of the entire league. I like it how it is. The more basketball, the better.

The NBDL is supposed to a development league for young players and players who are injured and working their way back.

How does limiting minutes help develop and rehab players?

In a 40 minute game, teams don't get as tired so they play harder, they play A LOT more defense, they play A LOT more physical, and they play with way more intensity.

Thus there is a MUCH GREATER need for bench and depth to the roster and teams use a lot bigger rotation.

The idiocy in this forum is truly mind boggling.

Could you actually explain all the things you just said like '48 minute games absolutely suck'. What do you mean 'better natural game rhythm'? That extra 2 minutes per quarter has never really phased me when I'm watching international ball vs NBA ball. Plus, the grantland article was talking about 48->40 minutes almost exclusively in terms of TV airing time and commercial opportunities, rather than basketball aesthetics.

And your above posts, please prove (IE show us stats) that basketball teams in 40 minute leagues use longer rotations than the NBA does.

There are that many "tv timeouts" anyways. Stop being a douche. Can you make an argument without insulting someone?

Right, as in TV timeouts, commercials, free throws, "teams going on runs" AKA where both teams are tired and no one ever plays any defense and everyone just stands around lets the score run up, etc............

"basketball"

Exactly, even if the quarters are 10 minutes there's going to be AT LEAST one TV Timeout per quarter, probably more. Not to mention teams calling timeouts. Hence guys are getting even more rest.

Starters could play all 40 minutes if you need them to and if they aren't in foul trouble.
