Trying to get this back on track, here's some of my ideas for a realigned NBA.

Idea 1(Imagine there's no conferences):

Atlantic: Boston, Brooklyn, New York, Philadelphia, Toronto, Washington

Central: Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Indiana, Milwaukee, Minnesota

Midwest: Dallas, Denver, Houston, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Utah

Pacific: Golden State, LA Clippers, LA Lakers, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento

Southern: Atlanta, Charlotte, Memphis, Miami, New Orleans, Orlando

Scheduling: 6 games against divisional foes

2 games vs everyone else(plus 1 additional game vs. teams who finish in the same position as you)

Playoffs: 16 teams(1-5 go to divisional champions)

1st Round: 2-game, total points

Quarterfinals: best-of-3

Semifinals: best-of-5

NBA Finals: best-of-7

Idea 2(NFL style-conferences)

American East: Brooklyn, Charlotte, Orlando, Philadelphia, Toronto

American Central: Detroit, Indiana, Memphis, Milwaukee, Oklahoma City

American West: Golden State, LA Clippers, Portland, San Antonio, Utah

National East: Atlanta, Boston, Miami, New York, Washington

National Central: Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Minnesota, New Orleans

National West: Dallas, Houston, LA Lakers, Phoenix, Sacramento

Scheduling & Playoffs: same as now.

agreed, although what's funnier is his idea for the first round. 2 games, total points?

October 18th killed in drunk-driving accident

This is nothing short of tragic. The 18th was a key player near the middle of October's order. Not sure if October will be able to remain in the 31 division, or have to move down to the 30-day conference. Who cares about that - a great month just lost a very great day.

RIP, October 18th.

We are all Octobers.

This one really hurts. Thoughts and prayers to the October family.

Agreed. This is terrible.

However, October isn't in the 31 division.

He was blinded by grief.

The Calendar:

In order to make more numerical sense I think the months need to be realigned.

The 31 Day Division

January

March

Oklahoma City (expansion month)

August

The 30 Day Division

June

April

Los Angeles (expansion month)

September

The Holiday Division

November

December

Portland (expansion month)

October

The Three Day Weekend Division

February

July

Vancouver (expansion month)

May

I know I broke up some classic rivalries and the divisions aren't geographically perfect but I think this realignment provides a nice competitive balance.

Un-fricken-acceptable sir. As a July fan I see your decision to break up the July-August rivalry as a personal insult and I will now go on an internet Jihad against you from now until eternity. I'll see you in hell.

Personally, I feel that the word 'Realignment' needs to be realigned.

Prefix division:

Team R

Team E

Root Division:

Team A

Team L

Team I

Team G

Team N

Suffix Division:

Team M

Team E

Team N

Team T

Division winners play a round robin playoff series to determine what letter should be capitalized, last year's winner was G, so currently the word realignment reads: "realiGnment

I know most people figured breaking up December and January would cause the most problems but I knew all along that splitting up July and August would be where the real trouble would lie.

Raysox & Cap touched on it earlier, but I've always figured that the 7 Days of the Week league (despite the fact that it functions amazingly well and has stood the test of time and stayed pure & uncorrupted by money in the modern age of sports) would benefit from some sort of expansion. Of course, this would lead to a new realignment, so without further ado, here we go:

Sidney Moncrief Division

Sunday

Monday

Tuesday

Hubert H. Humphrey Division

Wednesday (since it's the HUMP day and they play in the HUMP division! GET IT?! WITTY!)

Thursday

Kansas City Scouts

TGIF on ABC Division

Friday

Saturday

Neptuneday

Hartford Whalers

That way, we are guaranteed a 3 day weekend, the return of the Hartford Whalers, and the Kansas City gets a team just to make use of that arena. Perfect, amirite or amirite?

My only suggestion would be to switch Sunday and Neptuneday and its perfect. It may not be as big as Friday-Saturday, but the Saturday-Sunday rivalry needs to be upheld.

Nah, I'm in favor of expansion, not contraction. There are certainly enough talented hours to fill another day - the pool won't be diluted by having 24 more roster spots.

There could be two four-day divisions. The weekday division - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and the weekend division - DreDay (expansion), Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Top two in each division play each other in a best of three, and the winners play best of five for champion of the week.

Nothing? I thought that was pretty good :cry:

It was really good but it got lost in the asteroid expansion and October 18th posts. You gotta pace yourself dude.
