-no 6 foul disqualification. 6th foul and more is a technical foul(stole this from van gundy)
-shorten the length of the court by 5 feet and widen the court by 2.5 on each side.
-18 man roster limit
-nba age limit of 18 for NBA D-league only
-Scrap the lottery. Add a non-champoinship(NIT-like)lottery playoff. best team gets the #1 overall pick. nba teams that play in the lottery playoff gets cap-relief waiver(lux tax waiver cannot be used by teams other than the team that got issued the waiver) based on how far you get in the PO. They money from tv rights is divided based on how far you get in the PO.
-move NBATV to cable and have a NBATVHD and NBATV2(has more market blacked out games. They show the games 3 days AFTER the game has ended to keep the ticket sales from being gimped. Has more inside team content like pregame practices of the coaches choice and team dialog)
-add a 4th ref
-allow rebounding ball off of the cylinder(already doing this right now)
-add a 4 pointer(half court)
-allow HIGHLY SUPERVISED and LIMITED hgh treatment for players with career altering/ending injuries and injuries that keep recurring.(alan houston,Yao,Brandon roy,etc).
-add a nba team in Seatle,harlem NY, and mexico city

I can't tell if this a troll post or not

Teams have one basket to defend and there are three balls. I can imagine center-court getting a little rowdy with the constantly shifting/unstable gravity fields, but it looks like it would work.

I hope the celtics blow it up before this happens. Can't see Pierce and KG adding another dimension to their game this late in their careers.

Great thread.

Though if we were to entertain that the court from OP had some bit of truth behind it, likely an all-star related thing.
There is no asterisk on ANY N.B.A. titles.

Numbers don't lie, people who use them do
