Bonsignore goes on to opine that there simply are not enough quality basketball players to fill the current 30-team format which is fielding too many mediocre teams such as the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Charlotte Bobcats.
Consider the great teams of NBA past, say Bonsignore and others.
During the glory days of Celtics vs. Lakers mania, the Celtics boasted Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish on the front lines vs. Kareem Abdul Jabbar, James Worthy, and Michael Cooper, not to mention such luminaries as Magic Johnson and Byron Scott in the L.A. backcourt vs. hall-of-famer Dennis Johnson and Danny Ainge for Boston.
Don’t forget the Philadelphia team with Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Moses Malone, Andrew Toney, Maurice Cheeks, and Bobby Jones. Or the Milwaukee Bucks with Marques Johnson, Bob Lanier, and Sidney Moncrief.
