08:10 PM ET 11.11 | Are you living in a locale void of an NBA team, say like Seattle? Well, according to Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban - there's a good chance expansion is on the table, though, he admits he isn't exactly sure when expansion might happen. As you'll recall, Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer (yes, of Microsoft fame) attempted to purchase the Sacramento Kings and relocate them to Seattle earlier this year, a move that was blocked by the NBA's Board of Governors as the Kings had a local group willing to keep the team in California's capital. At the time, at least publicly, expansion was taken off the table though rumors have suggested that the league may look into adding an additional team or teams once the NBA's television deal is renewed. That vibes with Cuban's suggestion that there is a "good chance" for expansion.

Mr. Cuban,
The league is already diluted with D league caliber players on team rosters. The way to improve the quality of play is to contract ad not expand. BTW, it's either your fault or Kobe's.

Signed,

C'mon. You're not REALLY so naive as to believe that the NBA owners are the least bit interested in improving the quality of play in the league......are you?
