What They're Saying: Don Garber

“I don’t even think it’s a likelihood. Why would we have any comments to make about what the future might look like? I did say that I can’t see in the short term that we were going to go beyond 30 teams, but life’s a long time. I never thought we’d be at 20 or 24 or 28 and never thought would be 30. I don’t know what the world is going to look like many, many years from now. Right now, we’re very focused on finalizing our 30th team, with no commitment to go further than that.”
