33 posts in this topic

So its possible for a team to win the title and have the #1 pick in the first year? No.

the current system encourages tanking, widespread tanking, way more than the NFL system does.  it's often clear who the worst 2-3 teams in the league are, but this lottery poo encourages almost any team without a playoff spot to just lose in hopes of moving WAY up in draft position due to change.  that's bullshit imo.

 

wheel system, sure, it stops tanking, but it really hurts teams building.

 

honestly another way to help fix the NBA is a really rigid, low salary cap.  but... that may just cause salaries to adjust.

I think that could backfire though.

 

Take the Nets this year. Prokorovh is spending some crazy figure in luxury cap penalties to field that team. It's not working, BUT, in a low cap system, the owners with deepest pockets could tell a FA like Lebron, come here, I'll sign you all the help you want and you'll walk to a title. Lesser teams may be able to afford 1 big star, and then not much else. The cheap owners are happy because they get to be cheap, and the owners willing to pay for super teams destroy what little parity the league already has. 

 

The salaries aren't going to adjust. The players know how much money the league is bringing in/about to bring in, and team prices have gone through the roof. Seattle is willing to pay like a billion dollars for a team right now and can't get any takers. Hell, even the Kings sold for like 530 million last year. THE KINGS! The only reason the players aren't making more is because Billy Hunter is an absolute moron.

 

Lower the salaries? The lockout idea of players forming their own league comes closer to fruition IMO.

I didnt comment before because I thought it was really stupid. It is still really stupid, but now I must comment... I'm with carpan's idea of having a lottery for the 3 worst teams LIVE on television, and then having everyone else draft in the order of record. I don't want an NFL system for the NBA because it's a lot easier to stomach 17 weeks of tanking versus 82 games. But none of that will happen. Stern has shown he has no interest in transparency, which would alleviate most fans' concerns. For him to even have this proposed shows he has no interest in changing that. It's obvious that he wants to maintain a system where the big market teams, or teams that deserve a favor, still get fed.

It's carpanfan96, not 8789. Just fixing.

The problem isn't just stern though. It's wes and as long as he's in the hip pocket of stern, James, Kobe.....ext.... The nba isn't going to change for the better because he's the big reason that super teams have formed and is always pushing players to big cities to form even more of them. You think wade, James and bosh didn't get some extra money from him for doing what he wanted??? Of course they did.

You think it's bad in the NBA... I'm willing to bet money that he (WWW) had something to do with Kentucky's recruiting class this past year.

Wes has control from the AAU circuit to Lebron and shoe companies. It's crazy how a seemingly random dude controls so much of basketball behind the scenes.
