Major League Baseball isn't fair. The NFL is kind of fair. I don't know what the NHL is. College sports are fair only in a weird Machiavellian-yet-meritocratic sense.â†µ
The NBA is sort of fair, but the same five teams win titles over and over. Jonathan Tjarks argues the NBA should just give up on any attempts of leveling its playing field (gah I hate that cliche) for the sake of the greater good, since there are, for instance, more NBA fans in New York than in the league's various small markets combined.â†µ
Where would that leave a NBA market like Atlanta?
