Heard David Stern on ESPN Radio yesterday saying that, indeed, it will be 6 divisions, 5 teams each.

I messed around yesterday (hadn't gone to this thread until just now) and came up with exactly what Explorers came up with. It makes plenty of sense. Therefore, the NBA won't use it... oops, 'scuse me, I channeled Pete Rozelle there.

Now that the NBA is expanding to 30 teams with the addition of a Charlotte expansion team, its about time the NBA split up into Six Five team divisions.

To provide better balance, I have the LAClippers moving to become the Norfolk Clippers.

Western Conference
Pacific
1.LALakers
2.Seattle
3.Portland
4.Sacramento
5.GoldenState

Mountain
1.Houston
2.SanAntonio
3.Utah
4.Phoenix
5.Denver

MidWest
1.Dallas
2.Memphis
3.NewOrleans
4.Minnesota
5.Millwaukee

Eastern Conference
Central
1.Indiana
2.Chicago
3.Detroit

1.New Jersey
2.New York
3.Philadelphia
4.Boston
5.Washington

Southern
1.Miami
2.Orlando
3.Atlanta
4.Norfolk
5.Charlotte



That works for me but how about 4 conferences how would they align that.


Hey, FootballGod. Here is an interesting post:

Will the NBA add 2 more franchises so the league can have a total of 32 teams? If so, here is my alignment and its scheduling:

Eastern Conference

Atlantic Division:

Boston
Miami (returning from the Southeast Div.)
New Jersey
New York
Orlando (returning from the Southeast Div.)
Philadelphia
Washington, D.C. (returning from the Southeast Div.)
[new franchise]

Central Division:

Atlanta (returning from the Southeast Div.)
Charlotte (returning from the Southeast Div.)*
Chicago
Cleveland
Detroit
Indiana
Miwaukee
Toronto (returning from the Atlantic Div.)

- Also known as the Charlotte Bobcats

Western Conference

Midwest Division (formerly the Southwest Division):

Dallas
Denver (returning from the Northwest Div.)
Houston
Memphis
Minnesota (returning from the Northwest Div.)
New Orleans (heading from the East Conf - Central Div.)**
San Antonio
Utah (returning from the Northwest Div.)

** formerly known as the Charlotte Hornets

Pacific Division:

Golden State
L.A. Clippers
L.A. Lakers
Phoenix
Portland (returning from the Northwest Div.)
Sacramento
Seattle (returning from the Northwest Div.)
[new franchise]

Here is my scheduling format for each team:

A.) - 32 games against non-conference teams [a.k.a. East vs. West or vice-versa] (2*16) [1 home & 1 road]

B.) - 24 games against teams from the same conference but not your division (3*8)

-----Note: "Objective B" will be based on a two year
rotation

Ex: Dallas vs. West Conf. - Pacific Div. (Year A or Odds)

GSW - (@), (v.), (@)
LAC - (v.), (@), (v.)
LAL - (@), (v.), (@)
PHX - (v.), (@), (v.)
POR - (@), (v.), (@)
SAC - (v.), (@), (v.)
SEA - (@), (v.), (@)
[?] - (v.), (@), (v.)

Ex: Dallas vs. West Conf. - Pacific Div. (Year B or Evens)

GSW - (v.), (@), (v.)
LAC - (@), (v.), (@)
LAL - (v.), (@), (v.)
PHX - (@), (v.), (@)
POR - (v.), (@), (v.)
SAC - (@), (v.), (@)
SEA - (v.), (@), (v.)
[?] - (@), (v.), (@)

C.) - 28 games against teams from the same division (4*7) [2 home & 2 road]

Sum that up for a "returning" total of 84 games.

Take care, everyone!

Yours truly,

John

P.S.: About the 2 new franchises, if it's possible, it would depend on the NBA commissioner (David Stern) and staff.

-----for a total of 82


WBYeager, I love that scheduling format, but I would ditch the 2 extra games so the total can be 80.

As for the "non-division, intra-conference" format, its oppositions will rotate in a two-year rotation:

Example of a team schedule under the "intra-conference, non-division" format (it will work for all other 3 divisions of that conference:

Ex: Dallas vs. West Conf. - Pacific Div. (Year A or Odds)

GSW - (@), (v.), (@)
LAC - (v.), (@), (v.)
LAL - (@), (v.), (@)
SAC - (v.), (@), (v.)

Ex: Dallas vs. West Conf. - Pacific Div. (Year B or Evens)

GSW - (v.), (@), (v.)
LAC - (@), (v.), (@)
LAL - (v.), (@), (v.)
SAC - (@), (v.), (@)

I hope this might be helpful for your plan. Any questions or opinions, reply me or send me a PM. Take care.

Here's a more radical alignment:

Northern Conference:

Atlantic - BOS, NY, NJ, PHI, WAS
Central - TOR, DET, CHI, CLE, IND
West - MIN, MIL, UT, SEA, POR

Southern Conference:

East - ATL, MIA, CHA, ORL, MEM
West - NO, SA, HOU, DAL, DEN
Pacific - LAL, LAC, GS, SAC, PHX

Or, if you go to 32 as I did in my above post with OKC and KC:

Northern Conference:
Atlantic - WAS, NY, NJ, BOS
East - PHI, DET, TOR, CLE
Central - CHI, IND, MIL, MN
West - DEN, UT, SEA, POR

Southern Conference:
East - ATL, CHA, MIA, ORL
Central - MEM, KC, OKC, DAL
West - HOU, SA, DEN, PHX
Pacific - LAL, LAC, GS, SAC

Mine looks way better. And PLEASE check out the "scheduling". Thank you very much.

John

Doubtful. Birmingham killed the CBA Bandits (previously the Pensacola Tornados) with rousing efficiency. Not sure how the ABA Birmingham Magic did this year.

* IF * Birmingham built a domed stadium to replace the ailing Legion Field and were willing to make sufficient revenue concessions for an NBA team, then things will be different. The Atlanta Hawks would not be happy if that happened, unless if they intend on moving to Birmingham.

Also, Birmingham would have to leapfrog all of this formidable competition: Louisville, Jacksonville, Hartford, St. Louis, Nashville, San Diego, Cincinnati, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Kansas City, etc.

True.

Also add the obvious Oklahoma City, current home of the NOK Hornets. + Virginia Beach-Norfolk, Las Vegas, Rochester (if not Buffalo), Providence (if not Hartford), Richmond (if not Virginia Beach-Norfolk), Tampa (though too close to Orlando perhaps), Grand Rapids, and maybe Albany and Dayton but may be pushing it for NBA markets. Tucson, Fresno and Tulsa are a bit too small and a little too much of college markets. Austin may be too close to San Antonio and not quite big enough with UT in town. Its sorda like Columbus, OH in a way, but a bit more closer to San Antonio than what Columbus is to Cleveland and Cincy. Raliegh-Durham, though the home of the Carolina Hurricanes NHL team has too much college and too close to Charlotte. Greensboro-Winston--Salem-High Point has a similar situation. Honolulu is too far away and Hawaii lacks population though Oahu Island has 900K.

It may happen but it'll depend on the NBA staff.

Oklahoma City has proven that they can handle an NBA team (at least until the newness wears off barring they come up with a player like a Chris Paul-type), so I think they'll be first in line to get an expansion team. Teams have flirted with moving to Louisville in the past few years, however U of L managed to block that from happening. I think a Hawaii franchise is just too far away and would add too much to travel costs to be feasable (most sports leagues with a Hawaii team have either tanked or have had the Hawaii franchise fold). The NBA also seems to have kind of a dubious history with some of the cities mentioned (especially ones that formerly had NBA franchises, ala Rochester, Syracuse, Cincinnati, etc). Syracuse and Cincinnati would probably face stiff protest from SU, UC, and Xavier (much like what happened in Louisville), so they're probably not on the list. I honestly see OkC and Vegas (after working on a deal with the gaming industry to avoid it getting mixed in with the team) getting the expansion teams, with either Memphis or New Orleans moving to the Eastern Conference to form 2 4-division conferences, much like the NFL. Now an interesting topic would be to see if the Hornets can manage to stay in New Orleans after they move back (if i remember correctly, there wasn't much interest to begin with, though having Chris Paul might help that out). If they left, there are likely candidates as metioned above (Virginia (VB-N or Richmond), Hartford-Providence, Buffalo, Columbus), as well as San Diego. IMO, Grand Rapids, Albany, and Dayton are too small of markets to have an NBA base, though Dayton could be lumped in with Columbus.

Kansas City will be on the NBA's radar with the new Sprint Center opening up. Also it helps with AEG is part owner in it.
