I think it is best if the NBA stays as just a North American league. Maybe set up a Euro league and Asian league then have a tourney of the champions, but having an intercontinental league just isn't a good idea.
The first problem as already explained is travel. If you only have one or two teams travel will be a huge issue always. The second issue is alienating fans in NA. If it is one or two teams you can probably wouldn't be a big deal, but as you add more Euro or Asian teams it could become a problem where you start to miss out on huge segments of fans, and it makes more sense to have multiple leagues than just one league.
I say if they want to establish an NBA Europe or NBA Asia more power to them, but to expand the NBA itself is just not a good idea.
Pretty much this. Soccer has multiple leagues and multiple championships.
