So let’s set the ground rules: You can only switch the outcome of a championship game or series, not that entire season—you’ve giving a trophy to a team that lost in the finals.

Beyond that, it’s wide open. Would you give your favorite team a title? Would you deprive a team you despise, like having Butler beat Duke in 2010? Would you give a storyline a better ending, like letting the Yankees win the 2001 World Series, just weeks after September 11th? Would you make a change with a larger butterfly effect, like giving the Magic the 1995 championship, perhaps keeping Shaq from ever teaming up with Kobe for a Lakers dynasty?

The choice is yours. Use it wisely, and show your work.
