    I think FA before the draft could lead to better player development. NBA Draft picks have a pretty high bust rate. I think once FA decisions were made teams would have a better feel for both the...

    For the record I was a big fan of Cam the player. I've defended him from over the top criticism on this board (caught... MTM... cough). I just think the idea that he's this transcendent player who...

    Ok fine, 2018 doesn't count. What about 2016 when he went 6-8? What about 2014 when he went 5-8-1. I would consider Cam's prime to have started in 2013 and go through 2017. That's 5 seasons. And in 2...

    It's very difficult to think back to how players were ranked a decade ago.

    I'd argue that's made things harder, not easier for Lebron. Jordan got to play with Pippen for over a decade. Bird got to play with McHale/Parish. Magic got to play with Kareem at first and then...

    Agreed on that. But, we also have to acknowledge that Lebron played with Wade for his age 29-32 seasons. While Lebron was in his prime, Wade was not in his during their time together. Wade's reckless...

    You're right that Gasol was not a "superstar" but by that same criteria neither were Kyrie, Love, Bosh. Kobe played with a superstar in Shaq. Lebron played with a superstar in Wade. And Kobe played...

    C'mon man. He's 6-10 in his last 16 games. That's total BS that he makes any team a playoff contender. I know you're defense will be that CAR is a bad team around him but JAX/LAC/MIA/WAS are all bad...

    My point though is that $10B made last year doesn't necessarily mean that they have even close to that in cash on hand.

    Of the $10B in revenue, I believe 50% went to major league players per the...

    I think the Heat would get better defensively but worse offensively. Duncan was a better defensive 5 for sure and that would greatly help MIA. Offensively though, Bosh had developed into a great...

    I don't think it's fair to the 7/8 seeds that over the course of the season they earned leads for their playoff spots and now some other team gets to play them in a neutral site series. The playoff...

    Barry Bonds had an OPS over 1000 his last year. He never played past being an elite hitter because he was one up to 42. His legacy fell off because people "found out" that he used roids (in reality...

    In fairness to MIN, after the Joe Smith debacle I don't think they ever had a chance.

    As a total side note, in looking at their draft history I think there's a not that people forget from he KG to...

    It's certainly a legit criticism. At the same time though, which playoff series do you think he should have won?
