    Correct me if I'm wrong, but in the final two games don't the starters play more of the game or is it less?

    I think it goes something like this.
    • game 1 - 10%
      game 2 - 40%
      game 3 - 50%
      game 4 - 10%

    I think its different for every team, but those are the 'general' schemes they go by, i believe.

    I don't like having so many preseason games, but financially, 20 games is what is needed. If we had less than 20 games then salaries, the cap, ticket prices, the CBA, everything would be totally flipped upside down.

    I wasn't a fan of the 4 game pre-season, but after this coaching change I wouldn't dream of giving it up. Any chance of getting more game type action is welcome by me.

    Nice point kmac, BTW.
