    So an Eddie Curry type player who right now is only on a team because of other Injuries to people should make the same amount of money as LeBron James?

    Yes. It's a team focus, a cumulative athletic domination goal. The thing about the NBA is they backhandedly stress "the team" issuing out gold championship trophies to try and suffice the fans of those cities, but meanwhile an exciting young nucleus like OKC doesn't stay together and the fans are left scratching their ass and sniffing their fingers and Lebron tells Chambers to pick up his laundry at the cleaners. This other league would have way more on the line than this gloss we are watching.

    Clips 1-0 btw.

    So then lets say a player gets drafted to a team, turns out he doesn't like the team for whatever reason, so then his options are to stay on a team that he doesn't like or retire? So you basically want to eliminate trades and free agency where everyone gets paid the same? How exactly is that going to make them play harder? The guys on the bottom aren't going to be motivated if they make the same amount of money as everyone else and the best players aren't going to be motivated to get that 5 year 80 million dollar contract because what's the point?

    So you're saying the NBA should redistribute the wealth?

    Yes
    Yes
    If they want to stick around and propel their team to victories, then they will be very motivated. The league would be structured so the more success the team has, the more financial gain the individuals have. Paid on wins emphasizing "team".
    If the guys on the bottom aren't motivated to do well, then obviously they'll be replaced with the next in line. The point is the team financial gain which in turn gives the individual player greater financial gain.

    so for each win, the team get's a certain amount of cash reward divided equally? Each team has to put equal money in the "pot" to be distributed to the winners? So owners are essentially betting on their teams? So confused Lehorne, so confused.

    that first sentence doesn't make any sense. Why would it be divided equally between a winner and loser? That's too much like the NBA way.

    You have a league collecting all the revenue (media, licensing, tickets, etc), then they dole profits out to the teams based on performance of the team. THe best team gets the most money, the worst the worst. THis is a call to the pinnacle of team performance and management analysis of long term personnel.

    And it wouldn't be about geographic "media markets".

    By divided equally, I meant between the players on the winning team.

    Anyway, back to reality. Clips 1-0. Griz 0-1. Lakes 0-2. Proof is in the pudding.

    Also, I don't think Randolph is a punk and not sure why he was booed by the Clipper fans (other than for playing hard against the beloved Griffin). Do you remember when he was on the Clips playing his heart out? The guy is a banger.

    Where were the Gasol / Howard pick and rolls?

    Kobe was hurt and shouldn’t have been out there limping around with no strength to push off.

    This free-throw thing got old real quick. We know what we were getting with Dwight, but 3-14 from the line is a joke.

    Steve Blake is worthless.

    Metta needs to get his groove back.

    Jordan Hill and Antawn Jamison played well off each other and Jodie Meeks showed promise. For once, (with the exception of Blake), the bench doesn’t look like it will be a concern.
    Welcome to Hack-a-Shaq Part Deux.

    The bench is going to suck again. Don't talk yourself into believing otherwise.

    Kobe needs to sit when hurt. He's just not effective when injured, and actually detracts from the team when he plays that way.

    Howard was actually making his shots from the line last night. Obviously didn't matter.

    It's cool through, Brown said that the Princeton offense is only 40% implemented at this point.

    So, why did LA trade for Nash again? The man is not affective off the ball.

    I have no idea why. I figured they were going to get off to a slow start so I'm going to wait at least until December before I start to make any real opinions of the team.

    Nash just needs to be given free rein with that offense.

    Nash is 38, and will be turning 39 during the season. They signed him for 3 years, which is pretty unbelievable.

    How many NBA players can you name that were effective after age 40? I can't think of a single one.

    Nash defenders say that he was very good last year, but skills can drop off really fast in your late 30s. Some pitchers can remain effective into their 40s, but the NBA is a completely different animal, and it's just too tough for 40-year-olds, regardless of what shape they keep themselves in.

    Lakers are now 0-10 if you count the preseason.

    Mike Brown needs to be fired. I was shocked that he wasn't canned at the end of last season.

    I hate to say it, but the Lakers have been an absolute failure over the past 2 decades when not coached by Phil Jackson.

    Without the Suns' training staff, Nash will have osteoporosis by the time the playoffs begin.

    I like that the Lakers have gone 0-2 to start the season and suddenly it's a crisis of A-Rodian proportions.

    Seriously, people expect things to be instant. Yet the fail to see the starting 5 has only played 2 1/2 games together along with a new offense. People seem to forget though the Miami Heat Big 3 started off 9-8 their first year together and still made it to the NBA championship. Like I previously said that's why I'm waiting until December to really make an opinion of the team/Mike Brown.

    Tonight's match-up is looking so appetizing. "Your starting point guard...Stevveeee Blakeeee". Although it may feature the most lopsided calls you'll see all year.

    Lakers will come out fiery on defense though, no doubt in my mind, as their backs are against the wall. Could be a classic.
