So I have been thinking about the upcoming presidential election... and even though the NBA is a business (see Stern trumping the CP3 to Lakers trade) and Stern's successor has already been chosen (his clone Silver) I think it would be fun to see who you all would pick. I supplied some ideas:

Rasheed Wallace
Jerry Sloan
Skip Bayless
Phil Jackson

Ummm...

Of those, Silver, hands down.

I don't know enough of anything to pick a better candidate, but Silver is definitely very worthy.

Kevin McHale. So he can screw up the league just like he screwed up m Wolves! Rockets fans, you're next! jk that would be my drunk response.

Silver is good because you need someone who can be the villain and make business decisions. A fan-favorite comissioner is one that sucks at running the league.

No Joke I think Shaq would be an awesome commissioner. He clearly is very good at dealing with the media and creating a positive frenzy in everything he does. I think he could really enhance the attention the NBA recieves and be the guy who branches the league overseas. He is an attention whore but he has a very good business sense.

Can you imagine how many times the refs would get knocked out during a game?? Vince McMahon hitting Kobe with a chair in the NBA Finals screwing him of his 6th title while the evil LeBron is left in the center his arm held high by Vince McMahon

crooner second Rule.

Sloted Salarys.

player 1 15 million ayear

Player 2 10 million a year

player 3 7 million a year

and so on.

Want to create big threes?

Im ok with it, but you are not going to earn the same money being the third dude in the trifecta than being the first dude in your team.


It can have one of two positive benefits.

it will cause to either.

1 have a more leveled league because star egos wouldnt allow them to earn half than a similar quality player because of bieng the third dude in a trio.

or

2 cause a humbling of players and a more team oriented league instead of star led.

Why am I even a little bit interested in the "Crooner Rules" lol?

But I am.... so how much do role players make? And wouldn't this mess up trades (based on the salary scaling)? A team couldn't get rid of an old big contract for picks and young players based on this rule.

So basically a junior varsity division for the scrub teams.

I dont understand why ppl hate on Stern so much. He is just a mouth piece for the owners or the majority of owners in a lot of cases. They are his boss. IF Barkley or Riley or whoever ever got his job they'd do the same thing or just get booted out.
