The NBA Board of Governors have approved the new 6 Division Realignment that will take place when the Charlotte Bobcats join the league. Click Here (sports.espn.go.com)

New Orleans moves to the Southwest Division of the Western Conference and Minnesota looks like it gets hosed with the most divisional travel - another built in excuse for why they can't make it past the first round of the playoffs......

(and the Puck Pool King makes his 1000th overall post in the Hoops forum.......)

From here


Under the new plan, teams will play divisional opponents four times each, conference opponents outside the division three or four times and opponents outside the conference twice each.
4 Divisional opponents = 16 Games
10 Non Divisional Conference opponents = 36 games (6x4 & 4x3)
15 Non Conference opponents = 30 games
Total 82 Games
Why not make it 4 games for ALL the teams in the conference for an 86 game season? Or even 3 each for a 76 game season? Why is 82 the magic number?

Sports leagues in general seem loathe to change the number of games in a season because of the continuity of records kept.

The Northwest Division blows but I guess it gets the Sonics out of the Lakers' division.

Dear God.

Memphis is in a division with Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and New Orleans? Who in the hell did we piss off to deserve this?

Yes, Minnesota gets hosed, but they have a shot in hell of, y'know, actually winning games in their division.

So changing the number and allignment of teams and just about every rule/rule interpretation you can think of has no effect on the records? That and the fact it only became an 82 game schedule in 67-68.

Obviously there is some cause and effect there, but the number of games is the ONE thing that never seems to change. If the NBA changed to a, say 90-game schedule, over a 15-year career a player would play 120 more games with a longer schedule or about a season-and-a-half. That would significantly impact career records.

I wasn't saying it was right or wrong, I was just pointing it out.

I'd say it breaks down like this: at the beginning of the season, everybody has 82 games to play, to set whatever records they want to set. They'll always play 82 games, unless the number of games changes. This is what caused the whole stir in '61 when Maris broke Ruth's HR record; that was the season where they changed from 154 games to 162.

The proposed Southeast division is going to be the NBA's answer to the AFC Central.

I was SO ticked at the way the Washington St./Stanford game ended. Felt horrible for Dick Bennett...still considered a GOD back here for his awesome 90's run with UW-Green Bay. Just ask Jason Kidd.
