    It's time to "Right Size" the NBA. There are too many teams in the NBA. So many of these guys should be in the D-League but they are simply living off the fruits of the NBA having 300-400 roster spots when only 10% of those players could be considered elite and the bottom 75% are all scrubs getting a millions to play on a sub 500 team that no one cares about.

    I went to Pacers/Lakers game a while back. LOL... Usually, when a team like the Lakers come to town, you can sell out the arena... WRONG. We moved up to the lower level to some open seats and I saw Kobe make the pacers look like a buncha flat footed white boys. Actually, flat footed white boys is probably an accurate comparison. I think some front office people of small market teams realize that they can't compete with the elite teams in the NBA and they just try to milk the cash cow for as much as they can. They can't get the coachs, they can't get the players, so why even try?

    Well... the Cavs got the players. And the coaches. And they're about as small market as the NBA gets.

    The Thunder has THE player.

    Draft right and you'll be an elite team. Money doesn't matter.

    I disagree. Cavs were a good team, but each year in the playoffs, they've been outcoached, out hustled, and outclassed each season. The regular season means little to nothing in the NBA playoffs. The cavs can be the number 1 seed every year and they will lose to Boston or Orlando each season.

    Do you really think Kevin Durant is going to stay in OKC? Every big player that shown up on the radar that doesnt play in a big market, wants to come to a big market team. Did you think Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen were going to stay with the Bucks and Twolves?

    Had they won, yes. That's why Kevin Garnett left...


    Cavs had all the players they could ask for without getting Lebron's rivals.

    And Durant will probably be in OKC for a long time. Especially if they win...which it looks like they could be on their way.

    Being outplayed and out coached has really nothing to do with marketing.

    As for Chicago's chances, somewhat. They have the money and the players but there is Jordan's loooooong shadow.

    There you go with your flavor of the month bandwagon claims again. I bet you were telling everyone the Memphis Grizzlies were on their way until they GAVE AWAY one of the best big men in the NBA (gasol). If Gasol was still with the Griz, the Griz would still be a mediocre team.

    This is the biggest pile of bullcrap coming out of the media today. If players are worried about living in Jordans shadow as a reason not to come to Chicago, then that player should retire and the Bulls organization should just shut down shop and only open the United Center for fans to relive the glory days of the mid 90s.

    That's like saying Tony Romo shouldn't be the QB for the Cowboys because he could never live up to Staubach or Aikman.

    This whole "Jordans shadow" thing is becoming the biggest travesty every in the association.

    There is a difference between being LeBron James and everyone else. He has been hyped as the second coming, the messiah, the king etc.
    Perhaps LeBron wants to carve his own legacy somewhere else, or in Cleveland.

    Why would I say that about the Grizzlies? Did they ever push the best team in the NBA in the playoffs with little talent outside the best scorer in the NBA?

    1. No.
    2. They didn't have the best scorer in the NBA.

    Flavor of the month. Yeah, because it's illogical to think the guy that's soon going to be the best player in the NBA has a chance to win a championship. Right?
    Especially considering he's shown to be clutch and loves the game winning shots while his only competition (Lebron) hates the clutch situation because he chokes every time.

    Kevin Durant makes Oklahoma dangerous each year. They need a couple more players and they'll challenge.
