Not meant as a joke. Just another option as a 58 game regular season with no back to backs, probably fewer injuries and fewer key players sitting out to rest. Maybe even long careers for players that have to retire early from nagging injuries. Where would teams like Chicago, New Orleans and Atlanta be in the standings right now if it were not for injuries? Injuries are still going to occur, I just think that there would be fewer.
