In other expansion goodies:

• The Lynx were a WNBA expansion team in 1999. They won one playoff game in 12 summers. And then they drafted Maya Moore in 2011.

• Seattle has agreed to pay $650 million for a future NHL expansion team, presumably meaning Vegas-like access to talent.

• Deep down, NBA officials have to be dying, watching the NHL beat it to vibrant markets such as Las Vegas and Seattle.
