Adam Silver Proposes Midseason NBA Tournament Similar...

The mid-season tournament would be good for television, but it has to be structured in a way where teams would be willing to play 4-5 games in a relatively short period of time. I don't know how you would do that. That's part of the problem with the NBA, almost every time you go to a game you risk seeing a team resting a starter or not giving 100 percent effort.

If they do a 16-team tournament or something, they should start it on Christmas Day.

Maybe make it an extension of the all-star format, take the best players from each division and have a six team mini tournament.

Each teams plays within their own div. (2 games each) then 1West vs 2 East and 1 East vs 2 West, the two winners play eachother in the finals

I hate this idea because..
1) What would the teams play for?
2) If they play for a champiobship or something, it would take away from the NBA Playoffs and Finals.
