A Modest Proposal To Fix The NBA
Really, both issues reduce to one thing: some franchises perform better because they have better owners. "Better" is sort of a catchall for acumen in hiring and firing coaches and executives, willingness to spend money appropriately, and more often than not, getting the hell out of the way. So, I wonder, why should we nibble around the edges of problems such as tanking, revenue sharing and free agency designed to improve competitive balance? Why not cut to the source?
So to that end, I present my Modest Proposal to fix all that ails the NBA: Relegation for owners.
