For last few years a discussion regarding the length of an NBA season has been taking place. Even the league’s commissioner Adam Silver talked about.

Veteran forward Andre Iguodala is of the opinion that there should still be 82 games in the regular season. According to the four-time NBA champion, the length of the season is what ‘separates the men from the boys.’

Via Lee Tran of Fadeaway World:

“We gonna keep playing 82 games until 3005. We can’t change 82 games. 82 games … there’s a mental side of it. That’s why we talk about rookie wall. Records are made to be broken, and as we get better over time we’ll break more records. But I do think that there’s a foundation in all sports, you have to carry on that tradition… 82 games, I do think you know it separates the men from the boys.”

Iguodala gave an example of John Stockton who played 19 years in the NBA and in 16 of them he played all 82 games. The legendary point guard has hardly missed any games in other years.
