Those road trips are usually against the eastern conference though aren't they? Only Western Conference games this season.

What keeps them to the start/end dates of the season. The SC is in May/June usually, why cannot they just go into July???
Fear for the loss of fans due to summer conflicts. Plus it'll mess up the next season. They'd either have to move the start of the 13-14 season to November, or give each player a shorter off-season. Both of those options aren't great.
