Problem is, to make NBA players care about playing say the Spanish league champions. Most of these guys would probably take it as a joke, winning the NBA title is their dream, after a long year and a huge playoff grind you want them to get pumped up to play some team they deem to be a joke? I just dont see it really happening, and i dont see fans over here getting excited for it. The union would want more $ for this happening as compensation and theres just way too many issues. It would be international ball all over again, the nba champs taking every1's best shot after grinding a hard ass year of the hardest league in the world to play in, and the euro champs being hyped up trying to prove something, probably a good situation for them, but not for the nba.
