36 teams, 4 divisions of 9. Grow through the pain.

That adds some $650-700 million more in revenue per year, as a low estimate. Then you have about $200 million each for the sale of Seattle, Portland, Houston and OKC. $300-400 million for QC and Toronto 2. You add the #10, #14, #22 and #45 US TV markets, respectively. Everyone has better travel, and the divisions make the sport extremely TV friendly timezone wise.

An expansion worth $1.5 billion in expansion fees that grows revenues by 20%? Yes, please.
OKC doesn't need a team. I'd drop either Portland or Houston, too.
