Ailene Voisin

Nowitzki is right. Issue is back/back games, not the number of minutes per game. Days of back/back/back were insane - and commercial travel

#Mavs F Dirk Nowitzki said the NBA should do away with 82-game seasons and back-to-back games. Number of games to play: "In the mid-60's.''

Dirk is right: NBA season is just too long. We know 80% of teams that make the postseason by Feb. That’s a long time to play for seeding.
