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.
Correct. That's the biggest issue when it comes to the NBA...parity. In the NFL as well as the MLB (especially NFL), you see some random teams in the playoffs all the time...With the NBA, you will see:
1) Lakers
2) Nuggets
3) Suns
4) Spurs
5) Mavericks
6) Miami/Cleveland/Portland

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...

If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out
