The NBA is swimming in cash but has no real idea on how to use it to grow the business. [Neither do I.] Expansion of the G-League may make some small improvement in the product, that marginal players will be more proficient as they're pressed into service due to injuries [or Popovich's rests]. The other strategy is to grow the game internationally but I don't know if that will return much to the actual bottom line. Europe is 5-10 hours ahead, which puts live NBA telecasts in the middle of the night. And 7:30 PM in New York is 7:30 AM in Shanghai.

As a superstar-driven league--more than any sport or league in the world, IMO--I think the NBA is stuck where it is. Encouraging youth basketball is not going to produce more LeBrons or make them better. The league's investment cash is all dressed up with no place to go.

The NBA has been cutting edge on nearly every conceivable platform, especially technologically, to increase globalism and expansion. I would strongly disagree the league is "stuck where it is." There are plenty of new ideas coming down the pipeline just to increase the fan experience in the arena, not to mention even more for the fan at home. Thats just viewing the game...

Look no further than our own Steve Ballmer's ideas such as intermingling technology, statistics, and the fan experience via streaming, tv viewership, and in arena.
Plus, why would I want to go to the NBA? Duke players suck in the pros.

Well, that's exactly the point. What you're listing here is the NBA throwing all sorts of speculative investment cash into its product, but my question is whether those pennies will come back dressed as nickels, as the saying goes. Can they charge more for the product, increase attendance and viewership, create more revenue? I dunno. The game's still the game.

Sorry if I misunderstood, its been a crazy week... Clearly.

Yeah, I do think they will be able turn those pennies into some sort of larger currency, at least if you factor in the decline of cable as we know/knew it. I think globalization is not only the hunt for new and emerging markets, but also status quo in a shifting market. The success is certainly not worth its data in gold, but the past has to provide quite a bit of hope and direction for the future.

3 guys from the local tryout.

Surprised by that Sykes kid. He was drafted in the 3rd round and our GM said he had NBA call-up potential. Guess not.

Thx as always for the updates, MK. Kendall Marshall was quite adequate and a good veteran presence for our fetuses in the Summer League. Glad the Clips org showed him some respect. Class always pays off in the end.

We got smoked by the Warriors GLeague team last night. Brice and Jawun had decent playing time.
I've been an LA Clipper fan since 1998 and that will never change. I hate our new logo and jerseys!
