Professional Basketball Players Need to be Entrepreneurs

I hear that a fourth professional football league is starting up with Ricky Williams and 50 other former players behind it. It's going to be called the Freedom Football league.

That's great! Finally, football players are showing some entrepreneurial spirit.

What professional athletes don't realize is that their single best chance of taking over a league, becoming owners, and finally being in charge, is starting a new 4-on-4 full-court basketball league. You can't patent four-on-four full-court basketball, according to the attorneys I have talked to, so I have copyrighted the treatment, the script, and so on and so forth for 4-on-4 full-court basketball for any and all mediums. Imagine the reality TV shows, the scripted TV shows, the games, the tournaments, and everything else that can come out of this continuing script and treatment. The YouTube videos! The highlights!

Yes, and the important thing is that you can use the exact same infrastructure already in place for 5-on-5 full-court, but you will be able to change basketball from being the slow lollygagging game of running from 3-point line to 3-point line to being full-court fast-break again!

When it is only 4-on-4, players like LeBron James could dominate totally. The game would be all about running, gunning, dunking, lobs, and be flat out sprinting all the time. It would be a return to Showtime, Phi Slama Jama(R), and Dr. J time again. Basketball would be spectacular and full of highlights again. Bye bye NBA.

Yes, a 4-on-4 league could eclipse the NBA in no time, and do so world wide. Fans could participate as the reporters using their smart phones.  It would even work for 3-on-3 full court, 2-on-2 full court, and 1-on-1 full court "death matches." It's all about math, and we have figured the math out!

Yes. Sabermetrics rule!

Gregg Popovich is Right!

Gregg Popovich is right. Basketball is boring today because of the three-point line. just take a look at this article that recently came out:

Basketball can be fixed! The thing that we really love is run and gun basketball. It's running and gunning and dunking! It's fast breaking all the time. Those things have all disappeared because of the three-point line.

The answer is so simple! Start playing 4-on-4 full court basketball. Make more room for today's giant great players to drive to the basket. That's what will make the game exciting and full court again. Mathematically, it will be worth it to drive to the hoop again.

Basketball Players Held Back

Today's super talented basketball players are being held back. Basketball players today are astonishingly good. They can all handle the ball no matter how big and tall they are.

I agree with you totally! Today's basketball players can all play up-tempo basketball. Today's basketball players are flashier than ever before.

We need to put style and flare back in basketball! The secret is to play 4 on 4 full court. That's what will make the game's great again. That's what will bring back the excitement and showmanship of the former ABA, the American Basketball Association.

Improving basketball can be done. The answer is sitting within geometry and mathematics. Sooner or later 4 on 4 full court basketball will happen because it's a better game.

NBA wasting Talent!

This is part of the ongoing treatment and script for 4-on-4 full court basketball for any athletic or entertainment medium.

This game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Atlanta Hawks is boring as all get-out.

Yes. It's unbelievable. All they are doing is going three point line to three point line and chucking the ball. The Dallas Mavericks have Luka Doncic. The Atlanta Hawks have Trae Young. These guys could Run and Gun!

You could probably take the last four players on each of these two benches and play 4-on-4 full court and have spectacular games full of dunks, fast breaks, blocks against the backboards, and non stop running and gunning! Instead we are watching boring three-point clunking all the time!

The math no longer adds up for 5-on-5 full court. It requires three point shots all the time. 4-on-4 full court would be a fantastic game, an entertaining game. A much better game!

Basketball can be fixed!

Basketball is boring. However, basketball can be fixed. This is my ongoing treatment for a television show, TV series, or any form of entertainment.

Basketball can be fixed with mathematics. The ideal basketball game consists of running and gunning! There are lots of dunks, lobs, and running basket to basket. Great basketball is fast break basketball.

The problem today is that the players are too big and the courts are too small. It makes no sense to make all the basketball courts bigger. That would be prohibitively expensive. What does make sense, is to play 4-on-4 full court instead of 5-on-5 full court.

With 4-on-4 full court it will be Phi Slamma Jamma again! there will be many more highlights, and basketball games will be much more exciting.

It's all about mathematics. Sabermetrics revolutionized baseball. Now it's time to revolutionize basketball.

What if LeBron James retired

What if LeBron James retired from the NBA? What if he started a reality television show? What if he started a brand new basketball league that played better basketball? What if LeBron James started 4-on-4 full court basketball, which would restore fast break basketball to dominance around the world? NBA stars like LeBron James have the power to change the world. We could have Showtime basketball again! We could have Phi Slama Jama(tm) basketball again!

Lebron James - Should Move on from the NBA

LeBron James should retire from the NBA! He should take his talents to starting a new 4-on-4 full court basketball league and TV Show.

Yes, the NBA is ridiculously boring! These playoffs are of shining example. We had to watch 37 missed three point shots during the Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors game. Clank! Clank! Clank! There is no full-court fast break basketball anymore, there are no real highlights anymore. 

LeBron James could do a television show/series about 4-on-4 basketball, could play 4-on-4 basketball games, tournaments, could create an entire 4-on-4 basketball league, and could dominate basketball for another decade. LeBron James and other players could be owners in a new 4-on-4 basketball league that would be better than the NBA because it would have more highlights.

Boring! Here's what 37 missed three pointers are like:
Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank! Clank!

Now that March Madness is Over

The 4-on-4, full-court basketball league will need play-by-play announcers and sportscasters. We want two or three people who are often in conflict with each other. People who often have different opinions on the same sports topics.

I have an outside the box idea. One way to get such people, would be to go to eHarmony. Request that eHarmony help us find one eHarmony reject, who could be coupled with one eHarmony sweetheart for example. These two characters, one male and one female, could become the sportscasters because they disagree on everything, have totally conflicting personalities, and their love lives could be subplots in the 4-on-4, full-court world.

We could also go to One set of two announcers might be young people. We might create conflict with them by getting an older person who loved ABA basketball, or loved the full-court run and gun basketball of the old days. Someone like Phil Jackson who says the three-point line has destroyed basketball. We know what he means, he's right, because in the old days it was full-court basketball all the time. The three-point line has slowed down the game. We are going to fix that by going 4-on-4, full-court. This old-timer will love seeing the mathematics of how 4-on-4, full-court returns the game to fast-break basketball. People once learned reading, riting, and rithmatic.

This blog protects the intellectual property of playing 4-on-4, full-court basketball for a web series, TV show, TV game show, TV reality show, regular TV show, TV scripts, movie scripts, games, tournaments, actual 4-on-4 full-court games, social media, movies, and all other media.

Clips of 4-on-4, full-court basketball will allow for a new way to advertise products. Indeed, this treatment and script will allow for much better ways to advertise products for businesses on social media, and other media, because the basketball highlights leading in will be spectacular.

Wanting 4-on-4, full-court basketball is the result of studying basketball statistics, and analytics, since the invention of the 3 point line. Feel free to contact

March Madness, the Final Four, the NBA, and Disrupting Basketball

Have you been watching March madness? Did you see the Final Four? Basketball is really terrible now. The players run from 3-point line to 3-point line and pass around the outside and then they shoot a three-pointer. Boring!

There is no more Phi Slama Jama, There is no more nonstop running and gunning. Fortunately, there is a fix to all the problems.

What's that Willis? At least Gary Coleman as an actor would've said something like that.

The answer lies in mathematics. The answer lies in Sabermetrics for basketball. The answer is to play 4-on-4 full-court instead of 5-on-5 full-court. That's how you bring the fast-break back, run and gun basketball, alley-oops, and dunks. Those are the thing everyone wants to see.

I understand what you're talking about. We don't need a new XFL football league in 2020. We don't need a new Alliance of American Football League in 2019. What is ripe for disruption is basketball. Basketball is a worldwide sport and is growing. Football is only in the USA and it is slowly dying because of brain injury (chronic traumatic encephalopathy, CTE), meanwhile basketball is expanding all over the world.

Yes, you're right! What we need right now is 4-on-4 full-court. The possibilities are endless as a reality TV show, a scripted TV show, a scripted reality show, televised games, a sports show, a new basketball league, a tournament, or tournaments, and a much faster and more entertaining game with better highlights.

For a TV show about a new 4-on-4 full-court basketball league, You need some characters. And, we are the most charismatic sports fans around! We argue about everything. We clash. We have obstacles. We hate each other one day and we love each other the next. We can disagree on everything, and we can scream at each other.
