    Salaries are getting so out of control that it seems everyone who has ever had a glimmer of talent is getting $8-$12M. The average NBA salary is $5M (though I'm not sure how relevant the source I...

    Channing Frye makes a good point. Mike Miller took less to go to the Heat and he got amnestied. But when people are talking about taking a discount, I think 99% of the time they're talking about...

    Probably .01%, even less.

    Wade is consistently hurt. Rose is younger, but also consistently hurt. You can't have an entire backcourt that's a huge injury risk every season. Chicago wouldn't even...

    Honestly, there really isn't even a comparison. It's two completely different situations.

    Cleveland was a franchise that has never won a championship, and their hometown kid left them, publicly...

    Is Brooklyn In Big Trouble?

    I feel like people are going to lean more to the optimistic side in this forum, but let's take a look this. The question is, is Brooklyn in big trouble?

    In the past few months we've seen:

  6. Mikhail Prokhorov listening to offers for Nets

    So it seems that Prokhorov is listening to offers for the Nets. Source

    There's a thread on this in the main forum (where I already replied) but this is something that deserves a Nets thread.

    I...

    I thought this story was crazy when I first read it, but I think he's a general businessman over a NBA owner. If he can get $2.2B, that's a $2B pofit over what he paid for them originally. The...

    Because contrary to what they say, most guys don't want to "win at any cost." They want to win, but also get paid insanely. Then there are other guys that just want to be the guy, and guys that want...

    He asking one of the richest owners of one of the richest teams, in the biggest market, for cash. Now, the Knicks shouldn't pay that, but they probably will overpay.

    And here's the thing, there's...

    Look. There's no point in the players sitting out. They have a legit (though tough) shot to make it to the Finals. Why ruin that to make a statement. And that statement would they even make? That...

    Look. I don't know what Larry Johnson may have meant when he made his comment, but I think it's clear that he was insinuating a league made of of black players and black owners. He didn't say "let's...

    It's upsetting, but I kind of feel like Donald Sterling doesn't really lose either way.

    He bought the team for $12.5. If he someone is forced to sell or is coerced to sell, he's going to make...

    The guy has got to to. That's into. People knew, or let's say for argument's sake, "suspected" he racist. Now he says something like this on tape? There's no walking away from that. He's racist....

    Just like others said, it's illegal. That's it. That ends the debate. Federally, it's illegal. You can't allow something in a sport that not actually legal, and you can't unban it in some states and...

    I think there's a few things wrong with this post. First, sure, let's say they trade a pick and get Love and also sign Melo. Nash is hurting, he's not going to be a huge factor. And I think most...

    The Atlanta Falcons season ticket website doesn't list 50 yard line front row ticket prices, and they're sold out anyway, but let's assume they are double the next price level. That would make them...

    Sure, I think someone will do it at some point. The thing is though, I think in past generations steals were more the results of players being aggressive and playing defense. I think steals now are...

    "Lebron Jame has the biggest disrespect in the nba..." I'm assuming that is saying that people disrespect LeBron more than anyone else? Is that correct?

    Here's a few reasons people might not care...

    I agree with this mostly. I put Bernard King in for my fourth, just edging out Monroe. Melo will probably top him if he has a few more superstar years. He hasn't been here long enough for me. Houston...

    Why would somebody dislike it if their wife or girlfriend or friend who's a girl like basketball? Why would it be wrong? It's not.

    It's just that men are predominantly the ones who view most...

    I feel it would be a complete restart. Trading KG and Pierce and D-Will and Lopez. I want to keep D-Will as I'm sure the Nets wouldn't get back true value and I want to keep Lopez because of his...

    I'm Sold, It's Time To Blow It Up

    When the Nets got KG, Pierce and Terry, we all knew their ages would be a factor in their play. When the signed Kirilenko, I think most fans thought it was good, but injuries and age could be a...

    The problem isn't really the number of teams, it's the talent. Years ago, players would come out of college ready to be starters/stars/all-stars. They went to college and played tough ball against...

    No, he's not. But very few are. He'll get it though.

    That's the problem with all these "I want to win, but I want my $25mil" guys. Almost no one in the NBA is worth what they're getting paid, but...

    I kind of like the veto option, since, in most leagues the commish can overrule anything. But, I think if you're playing in a more casual league, most people don't even think to vote on trades. For...
