    Also use the what baseball uses. Qualifying Offers, if the player rejects it, then any team that signs him that has a top 15 pick, needs to forfeit that pick the sign the player.

    If the pick is outside the top 15, they forfeit that pick and the following years draft pick where ever that may be.
    If you get rid of max contracts you need to get rid of guaranteed contracts too. While the superstars will certainly vote to get rid of the max I suspect you won't find many middle or worse players willing to accept that or the end of guaranteed contracts.

    It's the mights and maybes that bug me really. I love the gossip too. I just find reporters are afraid to actually commit and use those words so that they're never truly wrong. They give headlines to generate clicks, and I understand why, it's just gotten to the point of ridiculous.

    But does anyone actually believe they win if his hand is healthy? Not only that, but it happens with many teams every year in every sport. We find out after they are eliminated that so and so was playing with an injury. Doesn't surprise me that Lebron was injured in some form.

    No you don't, why would that mean the end of guaranteed contracts? Thats on the owners/GMs if they dish out a contract that they later regret.
    Jackie Bradley Junior.... that is all

    So why would the owners agree to get rid of the max?

    Such a shame Iguodala took a knee to his knee and missed those games. Such a shame JR Smith did a slide tackle on Klay so he played on 1 leg for the finals. Such a shame a surgeon screwed up Kerr's back surgery so he has to coach through migraines every day. Such a shame the players didn't want cap smoothing and allowed KD to go to the Warriors in the first place. Such a shame hand checking was outlawed. Such a shame the ABA ever added the 3 point shot. Such a shame Wilt was so dominant the 3 second rule was created. Maybe we'd be watching basketball being played by George Mikan IV and his team tonight.

    What happened happened. When do we move on to next season?

    Why are you so defensive? Did you take your pills? Classic Warriors fan with his passive aggressive stuff. GTFOH with that ******** I was just commenting the obvious about Lebron's hand, as an NBA fan it would have been amazing to get more games instead of this ****** Finals.

    And lol at "JR doing a slide tackle" LMFAO!!

    Oh btw I "move onto the next season" whenever I want since you obviously closed the NBA Finals thread without any reason and that tweet/post by warfelg was posted here.

    Owners and Players Association would have to agree on that. I doubt players would ever give up guarantee contracts. CBA isnít for another 5 years. Canít make any changes till then.

    I agree. Which is why a hard cap isn't going to happen and max contracts are not going anywhere.
