The NBA needs to contract the league; high-level basketball talent is so pyramidal that the bad teams really have almost no way of improving without drafting multiple top 50 players. In a sport where a single top-tier player will be on the court 1/7th of the minutes played for a team that translates to not enough impact players being able to be spread around, and without the creation of a better farm system, it never will. Europe is the best outside of the NBA and even their highest tier of players are role players at best in the NBA. There's a reason the MLB has so much talent and to a lesser extent, the NHL.
Until something like that happens it's always going to be a league of haves and have-nots.
