What do you guys think can happen for the NBA to lose all its credibility.

Put In your post The NBA would lose its credibilty If______________

Fill in the blank by giving your opinion.

I'd go The NBA would lose its credibilty If Brandon Jennings is named ROY.

Whats yours?

The NBA would lose its credibility if it eliminated the cap. Big-market teams could then gobble up the best players, and the NBA would cease to be entertaining, which is why people watch it.

If Lebron gets mvp over Kevin Durant

That's just ridiculous don't you think.. Durant shoots a lot and scores points.. I don't think that qualifies him as the MVP though.. What else has Durant done to win this award..?? Does he play defense..?? Is he any good at it..?? I mean at this point Durant's game is extremely one dimensional and NO he isn't the league MVP.. That's just moronic to think he's the MVP when for the 2nd season in a row James has led a bunch of mid level talent type guy's to the leagues best record..

You're wrong..

If the refs continue to officiate games the way they officiated Game 1 of the Cavs vs Bulls game. Yesterday's game was a joke in terms of the calls going against Chicago.

Well the only way the NBA keeps James in Cleveland and keeps Cleveland viable as an NBA sports market is to make sure they win a ring which almost, (ALMOST), insures that James stays in Cleveland.. He wont stay if he feels he can't win rings there.. This year's his best opportunity to win one there and I think the NBA will do what it can to facilitate that within reason..

The NBA would make more if James played for a bigger market. Also if James wins a ring I believe it will excuse him from feeling obligated to stay there.

I don't necessarily subscribe to this idea.. There are still the same amount of seats in any given NBA arena and James would be selling those out in the future just as he's selling them out now so it's a push really except for the fact that if Cleveland loses James then I think the NBA loses money big because the Cavs wont draw anywhere near the fans it does now at home and on the road.. If James signs with a legit contender, a team that already sells out wherever it goes then all you really get is one more high profile player on a high profile team..

If all of Tim Donaghy's stories about refs tampering with games is actually true.

I read a lot of his accusations and some of them seemed pretty damn legit.

I do not doubt favoritism in the NBA, and I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised if some games were rigged. And that's upsetting.

Star treatment blatantly exists. Iverson got it here in Philly.

Hell that 00-01 finals against the lakers it was star treatment city with Iverson v.s Shaq (both those guys drew fouls like none other in their prime)

Call the game fair, let the best team win. That doesn't happen enough today.

Nothing against the cavs but there is no way David Stern/the NBA/ the Refs would allow them to lose in the first round this year. Yes they are the rightful best team in the NBA but you have to believe that if the Cavs were down by 1 in game 7 against the Bulls with 5 seconds left and Lebron went to the rim, HE IS GOING TO DEFINITELY GET THE CALL. No matter what. It happens all the time.

And this is not a slight against the Cavs and Lebron, I like you guys, good luck in the playoffs :) haha, but im just saying what I believe.

I work in the music business and trust me that more ****ed up **** goes on behind the scenes than you would believe haha so who knows what goes on behind closed doors in the NBA.
