There was an industry poll asking the question "Would you watch NBA games with replacement players?"
My response is.... the real question here is.....would you watch your favorite players playing in a competing league to the NBA?
Even if it was just a 4 team "All Star" eg east coast, west coast, midwest, south where the teams played round robin exhibition style.
Can you imagine what the tv rights for this would be worth? Surely there is an existing network out there who currently doesn't carry NBA who would like to fund this and now that the players union is disbanded....whats to stop them?
