What would happen if, hypothetically (*knock on wood) our team had died on that flight? Does the NBA gives us more players?

Talk about rebuilding.

Happened in old USSR to a soccer club and in Russia, recently, to a hockey team. In both cases, an "entry" draft was held, although the rules are obviously quite different from NA.

Oh by the way in that hypothetical situation, would it be too much to have Brian Burke on that plane too?

Happen in 1970 to Marshall University football program. College is way different then the pro so hard to compare the two. Marshall was allowed to have a freshman team play varsity football that year(back then freshman were not allowed to play on varsity team).

I'm guessing they would take players from other teams like when they add expansion teams

Either that, or they are going to take Toronto out of the NBA.

That's what I was thinking. In a situation like that I don't think the Raptors would ever fully recover, and if they did, it would be many years into the future.

Who's the Chuck? It's a question, but it's not a good question when you're discussing an actual team or and actual person.... it's just poor form.

As someone who is very leery of flying, I've often wondered the same thing too.

Perfectly valid question.

Glad to hear that they stopped the plane, and played it safely.

Good to hear that everyone's ok and we don't have to deal with hypotheticals, too.
