David Stern: NBA To Consider Permanent Short Season

"On Tuesday, David Stern told CBS's Jim Rome that the NBA owners would discuss whether to follow a shorter schedule -- like this successful lockout-shortened one -- going forward. However Stern doesn't anticipate changes soon, because, more or less, change is hard and potentially expensive. "The reason you don't make it a shorter year is because of the infrastructure that's been built," said Stern. "You have all of the buildings that have been selling an 82-game schedule. You have these local TV deals. You have these network TV deals. So, we'd have to negotiate with our players to take 20 percent less every year on the salaries that they're getting. That is a problem.""

Since the season will be shorter, Stern will have less work. Will he be giving away 20% of his salary as well?

Players take less money? Good luck with that. That would extend careers though, so it may mean more money in the long run, but seeing as how most professional athletes can't control their spending because of instant gratification I don't see them looking that far ahead.

It would extend careers more assuming you have a much more forgiving schedule, but then we would be seeing many day gaps between games being played, I do not see how this could work as of right now anyways

Hmm a good thought but it'll never fly as all interested stakeholders lose!

supply/demand: lower the supply of regular season game tickets by cutting games and with the same demand they could raise prices without hurting the attendance rate.

Given all the injuries we've seen I'm not sure we'd really see NBA players thinking this would extend their careers.
