        @Len F. , I live in NC as well. How do they Hornets not bring in enough money to the city for them to keep staying there. You do realize that they host 41 games and the opposing teams have fans that travel to see the games. That's a ton of revenue coming into the city

          @Len F. , Unfortunately though, Charlotte is just like any other small market team. It seems now that players either want to play in California or NY or Miami. Boston and Philly might be an exception. The reasoning behind the supermax contract was for teams to be able to keep their star players. Unfortunately, players are willing to leave 50 or even 75 million dollars on the table. I guess the league should drop to 12 teams, 6 in each conference. Have the players vote for 6 cities in the West and 6 cities in the East the they would most want to play in and let it go at that. Charlotte, Pacers, Bucks, Cavs , Suns and a couple of other teams just can't compete with big market teams

              I wonder if any of these players that keep flip flooring teams will get their numbers retired. Like will Jimmy Butler for example get his number retired. Probably not.

                Player contracts are out of control! Every sport it’s a game....hire kids out of college or high school kids to play a gd game! These clowns in all sports are ridiculous

                  The flexibility is probably good for the NBA, plus the loyal players are rewarded with team chemistry

                                      No they don't. These players could care less about chips. If that were the case some wouldn't leave good situations for a possible flop. The players you're referring to actually did care.

Seriously, an old Chinese women came up to me and spoke in broken English and told me she thought Kawahi was going to the Lakers. I've never seen so many people that didn't watch basketball be so excited about things. This is exactly what the NBA needs. Having one strong team and no competition is BORING. This is what the NBA used to be like.

At the rate we are going the top 20 best players on going to end up on a handful of teams and ruin the league because they will bankrupt small markets, which means less TV advertisement, less merchandise sales, fewer endorsement deals, etc. In fact, I can envision a day when 5 of the top 10 best players will join forces and go after a 9-peat to break the Celtics record of 8 straight. The owners will want to protect their interests and the only way to re-negotiate with the Players Associate is to go on Strike and temporarily shut down the has been before.

There was a report that Kawhi asked for shares in TFC from the Raptors... So maybe they're investigating the whole Kawhi transaction... I know a lot of owners are very upset about the Paul George request and demand and got exactly what he wanted and let's be honest Adam Silver works for the owners not the players...

Most of us aren't in position to do so, so we're jealous and upset when others can. Things change, when will you?

Good idea. I dont know about 1 years deals though. I like two year deals with player options for third years being the new standard.

What that mean is that if they "franchise tag" a player, that player CANNOT be traded unless it is being traded for another "franchise tagged" player. A team can franchise tag up to 3 players.

They want max pay but can’t even pass through the first round of the playoffs lol

The only ones losing is small market teams because super stars will communicate to play together but not in a small market
