Report of an 8-team in-season tournament in 2023-24, if the Lakers win one should they hang a banner?

Does in-season tournament championship count toward championship total?

JM, I respect you, I really do BUT this is a horrible poll Man, we only play for the ultimate prize. That would tarnish the banners already up there because it would be so inferior.

No goofy team should put up an in tournament banner.

Does the winner get an automatic bid to the playoffs?

Agreed. The automatic playoff bid would be the only real prize unless they offered something monetary to the players. A team like the Lakers with 17 real banners is not going to hang a silly tournament banner.

If the NBA goes through with this absurd mid season tournament, it is not a championship. Not on the the same level as the championship, not sure why you are even comparing the two.

If they win, you proudly display the banner, cup or whatever doodad they will give the winner. But it is a tournament win, not a championship.

Not sure the Lakers would make an 8 team tournament. And if they somehow did, James, Davis and any other player with a questionable health history should be sitting. Same as the mid-season ASG exhibition game.

Current framework of NBA In Season Tournament as soon as 2023-24, per sources:

- Cup games through November
- 8 teams advance to single-elimination Final in December; other 22 continue with regular season
- All games part of normal 82-game schedule; one extra for two Final teams

Just curious about the details.

Is the format for the top 8 teams to be in the cup. Or for the bottom 8 teams to “win” a playoff spot?

Scheduling will be complicated. Any team that loses in the first elimination game will be uneven with the teams that going to the “final cup game”. Also will the “cup” games count for season totals? Against your conference or division?

NBA must be concerned about ratings and popularity to be proposing this gimmick to inspire some enthusiasm mid season.

The in-season tourney idea is dumb IMO. It’s the NBA trying to spice up the regular season which is too long to stay interesting on it’s own lol

All the serious teams are going to load manage the crap out of this for fear of injury to their stars

English soccer has the Premier League, the FA Cup, and the League Cup (currently called the Caribou Cup). They go onto separate lists. So you would say that last year Man City won the league and Liverpool won both cups. There are also the European cups (the Champions League, the Europa League, and the Europa Conference League). There is a hierarchy for how the different cups are valued. It varies from club to club.

It's really not complicated. If we win the in-season tournament, we'll celebrate it. It won't get a league championship banner because it isn't a league championship. It may get some other sort of commemoration -- a different sort of banner or something. Winning the league championship will always be the ultimate goal and will be far more significant, but the in-season tournament will be a trophy to play for.

I think it will be just fine in time. All of the games except the Final will be ordinary regular season games. The WNBA does something similar. It means that there will be one additional meaningful game per year, played in December, and that a few regular season games will have a little extra juice. People here will scoff at it until we make the final against the Celtics. It's a single-elimination tournament, so all sorts of teams could potentially make a run at it.

Absolutely not. That's a Clipper move, not a Laker one.

^ This.

It should be noted that it's a massive accomplishment and mark of all-time greatness for a team to achieve a treble (three trophies in one season).

I can imagine, after a few decades, people would assign a higher all-time status to the few teams that are able to win the in-season tournament, get the best record in the NBA, and win the NBA Finals all in one season.

(Not saying they'd be elevated above teams prior to the in-season tournament era, like the 80s Lakers, Kobe/Shaq, 90s Bulls, etc., but when people compare teams within the in-season tourney era, they'd have a more favorable view of the teams who win both the tourney and the NBA Finals.)

The NBA needs to a better job branding the “tournament” and explaining it to people. Of all the people I heard on ESPN radio, and even Mark Cuban, I don’t think any of them understood that these games fit in to a regular season 82 game schedule. (Except the championship)
