    I agree the NBA has tight control on their games, bunch of greedy bastards. You can't even hear the games on radio for free this year, the NBA decided to offer radio broadcasts as part of League Pass so you have to pay to listen to the Knicks on radio

    I doubt you go back to when the NBA played less than an 82 game schedule. More regular season games equal more $$$ even if it's only the playoffs that really count.

    I figured that much, but it still doesn't make any sense.

    I did my research and read that the Bundesliga teams avoid debt at all cost. The clubs in Germany have learned to avoid needless spending in the transfer markets and focused on building youth systems, which have already started to bear fruits.

    I've always respected that. In Major League Baseball, the teams that aren't the Yankees and don't have a high salary focus on building and developing their young players to turn into superstars and hopefully keep their loyalty to the club.

    Mario Gotze, Marco Reus, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira, Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller came out the German League, so Bundaligas teams do a good job on producing talent.
