Starters could play all 40 minutes if you need them to and if they aren't in foul trouble.
He's just using this thread as another way to prop up the Euroleague.

I would imagine the # of fouls would be reduced by one but I'm not sure on that

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.............


Look everybody, it's a ****ing dumbass.

Well in 40 minute games, OKC wouldn't have to play Kendrick Perkins. Which would be a good thing.

At least there's that.

Oh I see, so NBA games are free throw contests for no reason then........

You are a moron.

And the idea of starters playing the whole game..............you are a ****ing idiot.

Are you 9 years old? Can you address a point without insulting somebody? You're acting like a child.

40 minute games is the equivalent to making an 82 game season a 68.333 game season...

So just make it a 68-70 game season, and first round series back to a best of 5.

Do 70 games a season, eliminate the back-to-backs if possible.

Young teams could play 5 guys on some nights if they wanted to. Stats would be ruined forever, you could never compare between stats before the change and post change.

And we get less basketball to watch. No thank you.

Don't like this at all. The games already have a good flow the way they are, why fix what ain't broke?
