March Madness, the Final Four, the NBA, and Disrupting Basketball

CHARACTER ONE DIALOGUE
Have you been watching March madness? Did you see the Final Four? Basketball is really terrible now. The players run from 3-point line to 3-point line and pass around the outside and then they shoot a three-pointer. Boring!


There is no more Phi Slama Jama, There is no more nonstop running and gunning. Fortunately, there is a fix to all the problems.

CHARACTER TWO DIALOGUE
What's that Willis? At least Gary Coleman as an actor would've said something like that.

CHARACTER ONE DIALOGUE
The answer lies in mathematics. The answer lies in Sabermetrics for basketball. The answer is to play 4-on-4 full-court instead of 5-on-5 full-court. That's how you bring the fast-break back, run and gun basketball, alley-oops, and dunks. Those are the thing everyone wants to see.

CHARACTER TWO DIALOGUE
I understand what you're talking about. We don't need a new XFL football league in 2020. We don't need a new Alliance of American Football League in 2019. What is ripe for disruption is basketball. Basketball is a worldwide sport and is growing. Football is only in the USA and it is slowly dying because of brain injury (chronic traumatic encephalopathy, CTE), meanwhile basketball is expanding all over the world.

CHARACTER ONE DIALOGUE
Yes, you're right! What we need right now is 4-on-4 full-court. The possibilities are endless as a reality TV show, a scripted TV show, a scripted reality show, televised games, a sports show, a new basketball league, a tournament, or tournaments, and a much faster and more entertaining game with better highlights.

CHARACTER TWO DIALOGUE
For a TV show about a new 4-on-4 full-court basketball league, You need some characters. And, we are the most charismatic sports fans around! We argue about everything. We clash. We have obstacles. We hate each other one day and we love each other the next. We can disagree on everything, and we can scream at each other.
