I agree that over-expansion was harmful at a time when they could count on MJ alone to sell tickets. Completely short-sighted. The sad thing is there were so many good teams at that time, and now there is a definite ceiling for most teams. So it goes beyond a watering down of the talent base. The way the CBA is structured makes it tough to put all the pieces together. Even with LA and Boston you had two ridiculous scenarios that no other teams can count on duplicating.
