Michael Jordan Stern expanded the league, but don’t forget 5 teams have relocated during his tenure. Compared to the NFL, MLB and even the NHL the NBA is a league that lacks competitive balance. Since 1984 only 7 different teams have won a NBA championship; Lakers, Celtics, Pistons, Bulls, Rockets, Spurs, and Heat. Twice as many different teams have won the other league’s championships.

And so on...
My team, the Timberwolves (so good!), have a really tough time getting back into the mix of things thanks to all the equality problems within the league...
