LeBron James 80s Style NBA Contraction and Dispersal Mock Draft

January 10th, 2011 by Leo Florkowski Leave a reply »
LeBron James recently spoke out in favor of contraction within the NBA.  He said the quality of the game back in the 80s was better due to more stars on each team.  While I am personally against contraction, I am going to break down the pros and cons of contraction.  You have to love the what-if scenarios that sports present us.  I will also go through a dispersal mock draft and the rules involved in such.
Pros: Fewer teams means deeper teams.  In my dispersal draft I will be eliminating 8 teams.  Adding the best players from those 8 teams to the remaining 22 teams will create some incredibly deep and talented teams.  That will save fans from ever having to watch truly talentless teams from playing one another. 

Fewer teams also increases the odds that your team will make the playoffs (assuming they weren't contracted).  With 22 teams and 16 playoff spots almost every team has a shot and gives their fans something to strive for.  As a result, it also decreases the odds of teams tanking for the lottery since most teams should be in contention for the playoffs for the majority of the season.
