It makes me wonder... is NBA salary cap broken? It is designed to keep teams even, and promote competition. The truth, though, is that big-market teams can underpay superstars to build super-teams, and those superstars will still get paid plenty through endorsements by playing for a big market team, and by playing on a super-team.
LeBron gets over $40 million a year in endorsements -- of course he doesn't mind taking a cut to continue to play on super-teams.
Once your top players don't care to get paid the top money, the system designed to equalize teams through salary caps no longer works.
I wonder what its means for Marion and Carter if Dallas gets Parsons..
It puts a lot of pressure on the Rockets and Bosh to make a decision quickly. They decide to match on Parsons before Bosh signs and I believe that option is pretty much out the window. Bosh takes too long and they lose Parsons for nothing.
