That's my problem with baseball as well, how can a team like Houston only fielding a $44 million team compete against a $235 million LA Dodgers team? The problem with the NBA and MLB is over saturation of the market. The NFL is lucky it can draft from as talented of a field of players from college that 32 teams can be respectable. The MLB is basically 20 competitive teams and 10 farm teams while the NBA should probably only field 24 of so. Players like James distort the market because while he should earn $75 million a year based on his impact, he can take less due to endorsements and the endorsements he brings to teammates. I just don't want a scenario in the future where a team like Brooklyn fields a $200 million roster and Charlotte fields a $60 million roster.
This is why I'll never enjoy the NBA, there should be a max cap, none of this luxury bs. Implement a max cap, if you go over you lose draft picks and lose your top salaried player while still paying him money owed off the cap.
Maybe God will do us a solid and Steph Curry will come home in 2017. Also if he's really in a giving mood Jordan will be captured by the Monstars and forced to become the main attraction on their planet.
