NBA BOG Unanimously Approves Change In Finals Format

Following his final BOG meeting, NBA Commissioner David Stern today said owners voted unanimously to approve changing the Finals format to 2-2-1-1-1, and said that the arena project in Sacramento is on track to open for the '16-17 season. Stern also said come next season, the league is projecting to have 24 or 25 teams to be profitable, thanks in part to the league's revenue-sharing system. “Owners got a report that things are working pretty well,” Stern said.
