View Full Version : What would happen to the NBA if more super teams are formed?

Say all the surplus of talent on teams like the Hornets and Magic are depleted and the NBA is left to this:

Heat:
-LeBron James
-Dwayne Wade
-Chris Bosh

Knicks:
-Carmelo Anthony
-Amare Stoudemire
-Chris Paul

Nets:
-Dwight Howard
-Deron Williams

Bulls:
-Derrick Rose
-Brandon Roy (trade for 2nd option)
-Carlos Boozer
-Joakim Noah

Lakers:
-Kobe Bryant
-Danny Granger (trade to shakeup team)
-Pau Gasol

The point is, if the Knicks get Paul and the Nets or Lakers get Howard, other teams will react and make trades (like the Roy/Granger ones), in effort to stay on level talent-wise. If all the talent is lopsided to five or six big market teams, what will happen to the NBA?

I personally think business with skyrocket, as series like Nets-Knicks, Knicks-Bulls, Heat-Nets or Heat-Knicks would be classics.

Having only 4-5 competitive teams would be pretty terrible and make the NBA uninteresting. There is at least decent parity now in the Western conference.

Would kill any markets outside of the big ones and would probably lead to a contraction and less teams overall. I just generally wouldn't have as much interest at all personally. Part of the attraction of sports are unexpected outcomes. If the same 4-5 teams are just playing one another every year in each conference finals for the next few years it would get really old really quick.

The league would fold because outside of those markets no one would want to see that crap.

Why have other teams if they keep losing there stars.

05-12-2011, 03:14 AM
Exactly what ^^^ said. it would kill small market teams like the hornets. The only time you would get decent ticket sales as a team would be when a super team came to town.

I think parody is a good thing. It's nice to think that on any given night your team could have a shot depending on the matchups.

I agree with contraction but having 16 teams only? Yeah that'll keep the league afloat.. the league would fold after a year of that BS because nobody outside of those 16 areas would watch or buy merchandise..if the Suns were contracted i'd say eff b-ball for good..but theres no reason we should be contracted..we got the 5th largest population the country...not sure about the market

as far as superteams..its bad for the league..its bad for the players..what happened to competition ???????

Lets form one "super" team before we start speculating about stuff that will never happen.

It'd be brutal. Once the league settled into a routine and players were locked in with long-term contracts there would be one team that had an edge talent-wise. They'd win every year for a long long time and nobody would care any more. Plus there'd be places where basketball is very important but the NBA is no longer relevant so they would probably turn their attention to college ball.

The Lakers would be worse imo, Bynum is better than Granger. Granger is overrated.

I'm all for it, but thats not that many superteams. Teams that are balanced would still stand a chance. The huge downside is that building for the future seems kind of dumb now with players just wanting to join each other.

It would turn away the majority of small market fans for sure. Not that it matters, large fan bases would hop on the bandwagon in masses and the revenues would stay high for those teams, but the majority of small market teams would have a withering fan base, and eventually it would cause contraction because owning a team in Minnesota or Milwaukee would no longer be attractive.

Having more superteams would hurt the NBA big time imo. Some of you large fan base fans could care less, but I would rather have disparity over 4-5 superteams and have to watch the same playoffs every single year, following the same regular season every single year.

agreed. it all depends on the new CBA. The owners want a hard cap, and a franchise tag like the NFL, but with a few tweaks. I'm willing to bet that there will be a little lower of a cap which in turn miami would be f-d. How about them 7 championships then Lebron??:laugh2:

The NBA would only suffer if all of the "super teams" were formed in small markets. As long as there is at least 1 super team -- and a championship team at that -- in a major market, the NBA seems to do just fine. I mean this is a league where a franchise has appeared in practically half of all of the Finals. I think it could easily profit from having multiple rivalries and multiple top notch contenders in the billing.

Da Knicks
05-12-2011, 10:10 AM
Funny that people are thinking the way they are, the league has had superteams forever and the lakers and celtics have run the nba. True fans stick to the team they like and dont care that the lakers and celtics have more chips than all the other teams combined. Stacked teams have being around since the beginning of the nba nothing new here. The only difference is that the Lakers and the Celtics are not the teams that are getting the love right at this moment. Miami and New York are big markets that needed a little bit of help. Miami was not selling tickets and New York fans where growing impatient being faithful for such a long time and not having a winner.

If the nba was your business would you not try to fix the markets that are down? esp the ones that could make you so much money... At the end of the day its a business and you have to figure out what sells...

Don't like the idea, that is why I don't want Miami to win, because then it encourages the idea of superteams which means about 25 teams wouldn't have a snowball's chance in hell to win it all.

I like the idea of a franchise tag like the NFL, so that when a team is bad and they get a good marquee player thru the draft, they keep that player vs him jetting off to winning organizations.

But teams have players for 7-8 yrs depending on what round their drafted in and what contract they sign after their first couple of yrs in the league. Now everyone wants a franchise tag. How about the build better teams. IMO some organizations are just content with winning 40 or so games, having a couple of playoffs berths, and filling the arena on a nightly basis.

It doesn't surprise me that that's what you guys want, but MIA wouldn't be f'd, especially when we get to choose who we'd want to get rid of. Too bad.

It would be alot more than just bosh. Some of their role players would go as well. Having 33M wrapped up in james and wade only leaves about 22M or so to fill out your roster. I've heard the cap they want will be about 57-58M. Or the cap could be lower than that. So bye bye to haslem, mike miller and a lot of those other guys. Plus there might not be a MLE either. All that mixed together will f them over. I'm not just saying it to get you guys wound up, its just harsh reality. don't get too defensive man.

The C's will probably be in the same boat, but the one thing with the c's is that the Big 3 aren't in their prime. Which is why I expect some moves in the offseason by the c's. Some of you heat fans get some bent out of shape over the Big 2 1/2 will probably have to get broken up.

The playoffs would be insanely entertaining. The regular season... not so much.

Let's be honest too, the NBA isn't exactly the model of parity as is. Every year there are maybe 5 teams that legitimately are reasonable title picks and another 3-5 that could be darkhorse candidates if breaks go their way. Superstar teams are not going to change that significantly.

which is why the nba is going down the tubes IMO. That's why the NFL is the #1 sport IMO. Alot more balanced teams, and you have about 20-22 teams or so that have a legit shot to win it every year.

I already feel like the league is teetering on disaster with how things are now. You add teams like you mentioned in the OP and while it's exciting for fans of those teams, why would I, as a Suns fan, care about basketball.
You're banking on draft picks or the perfect storm that the Pistons snuck in in '04 & '05.

people should stop and think bout this.

In the 70s several teams made the finals, several team won rings ( only two teasm repeated)

now what? League was losing hughe money no one was paying atttention
the 79-80 finals were only showed ON TAPE DELAY

now think bout this Stern steepd In

from 80 to 98 Only Lakers, Sixers, Celtics; rockets, Pistons, Bulls won rings
Finalists? only sonics, suns, Jazz, Blazers made the cut.

So for 18 years was all bout 5 teams and to be honest jsut bout TWO of them who got 11 rings.

You knwo what?

In terms of making money, expanding and getting profit it was the BEST ERA of the nba, they never made more money that in that span.

Even Worse the BEST span it was the one on the eyars that NO ONE could catch the bulls.
It was a monologue and it created more and more money.

Why do you get that notion that superteams is a bad thing?

why would owners want to shag big market teams?

Check the viewers of the finals in the bulls vs sparring years, check the viewers on Lakers vs Celtics ( both in 80s and the recent reprises) now compare it to Spurs vs Pistons and Spurs vs Cavs.

Whats best for their pockets?

smith&wesson
05-12-2011, 02:40 PM
umm couldnt you say that the kobe and shaq lakers team was a super team ?

also couldnt you say that the spurs have been a super team ?

also dont you think the suns with nash, marion, amare all in theyre prime was a super team as well ?

how bout tmac and yao .. that was an attempt at a super team.

what about the miami team with wade and shaq, payton, walker, haslem, posey, kapono ??

i dont think these super teams are any thing new.

infact i much rather watch miami with the big three, or new york with stat and mello then to watch the pacers, 76ers, raptors ect...

C - Dwight

DWill is a great off-ball player, Lebron and Stat can run the pnr all day, Durant is the epitome of an off-ball scorer, Dwight pulls the whole thing together with his defense, rebounding and lowpost scoring, while Melo comes off the bench for the scoring spark.

ALL THREE MEMBERS of the HEAT took PAYCUTS.

You think Anthony and Stoudemire will opt out of there contracts so they can re-adjust there contracts so they can take paycuts to make room for Chris Paul???

Dwight Howard and Derom WIlliams in nets is just two people getting Max Contracts so it aint bad....but i think chris paul goes to Orlando or they find a team in west to get on.

I think Kobe is going to be stuck with Gasol. lets see

Contraction is always a good idea when your team isn't being shut down.

The teams that didn't make it should start a minor league, like in baseball, do a draft and everything for the players left over...

Teams with inept management that is constantly playing it cheap (IE: Donald Sterling) or just making poor moves deserve to lose their star players.

As much as this super team talk has started recently, all that matter is which players have left teams with a history of winning and good management to go to teams without a history of winning and poor management?... none!

Of course players want to play for winning teams, with a management organization they trust in that will deliver success. It's not brain surgery. You put together a winning product or something to give guys hope, make the player feel comfortable, and they will want to stay (IE: Zach Randolph), or you can not put together a winning product, and just try and throw oodles of money at them (IE: Garnett @ Minnesota).

Wow, that is a horrible idea. Nothing personal.

The NBA is what the NBA is... If you like basketball, watch college hoops. If you like an athletic exhibition vaguely resembling the game most of us grew up playing, watch the NBA.

If you have a super teams in all your major markets of course it would bring the league a lot of money, and revenue would sky rocket, but the interest of the sport by other fans will quickly drop..I would hate to know what teams are gonna be in the conference finals every year because every other team wont be able to compete.. Business POV great for the league.. For the Sport the worst thing that could happen! thats why NFL>NBA

Completely agree. And I would think that teams would maybe start to intentionally lose so they can try and score big at the lottery. So the biggest day for the fans of the underprivledged teams would be draft day and only draft day. Snoozer!

Like I said in the beginning of the thread, lets wait for atleast one team to form a "super" team.
