    On Dame, 8 of his 11 playoff series for his career he shot .411 or worse, never shot over .500, and been in the 300s 4 times ... don't know that I'd say that's coming up big. For comparison Curry...

    No. I haven't seen many Portland playoff games. I don't know why, just hasn't happened. Probably in part because I don't live in the PST so the games go really late.
  3. If a player on a team below the soft cap walks...

    If a player on a team below the soft cap walks the team can use that money to sign another player. The same as the NFL. Because the rules are the same for both leagues when the team is under the...

    What he said was "30m in one state means something different than 30m in another" , he didn't limit it to just state income tax rate. It's why I asked him the question. Oregon has no sales tax at...

    Riiiiight, because what defined Steph's college career was his poor athleticism and poor shooting. PBJ and Steph are just the same.

    I've repeatedly said that PBJs peak will be determined largely...

    Washington has no income tax either right? And Oregon has no sales tax? While Texas has the highest property taxes.

    I think it's an interesting idea, but it certainly helps CA and NY teams more...

    Does any team have cap space they can't allocate elsewhere?

    I don't think you are using "compensation" in a way that matching my understanding of the word. Something, typically money, awarded to...

    Oh and Dolan is the majority owner of the Knicks and controls MSG Inc (or whatever it's called) that owns the arena. So, should probably count that too.

    The Nets, Wizards, Nuggets, Jazz, Trail Blazers, Pistons, and Raptors own their arenas too. The Bulls own half of theirs. And I believe the Bucks and Clippers are working on building their own...

    So adjust it by local cost of living and tax rate? That would be a major assist to big cities I think
  11. I didn't say only a hard cap will do, but you...

    I didn't say only a hard cap will do, but you were pointing out that the NFL has "compensation" for losing players. And by the NFL rulebook the only compensation is draft compensation. You called...
  12. Well, I didn't say 150 players. And you said...

    Well, I didn't say 150 players. And you said "impact" not "impact a championship". I figured since you were singling them out as "so few" you actually meant few players, but then you included...

    I said most owners/teams can afford to go into the tax and that it makes sense if they draft and develop players well. I never said all of them can.
  14. Didn't even think about that.

    Didn't even think about that.

    Part of that is already happening. Teams over the tax don't always use their MLE.

    Over the tax must match money exactly? Or are you going to leave the same window as presently? Allow trading...
  16. Not just "impact players" you said "so few" ......

    Not just "impact players" you said "so few" ... so that has to mean players that there better than just "can have any impact on the game" right? We've talked in the past about how there are not...
  17. And Klay, who I think played more minutes that...

    And Klay, who I think played more minutes that Tatum, was worn out too. But that's not the point I was making. The point was that KD lost to the Celtics because the Nets defense was bad more than...

    Right. So if MJ gets an offer of a few 1st round picks and some roster filler from the Lakers in a couple years for LeMelo vs him signing a player to a 5 year $200M+ contract ... it would surprise...

    Okay, I took it when you said "there are so few impact players and no compensation for losing them" that you meant stars because that's the category that there are "few" of and actually meant no...

    Or just get rid of all the exceptions and hard cap it.

    I don't think they lied, though I have no problem with them not telling the truth to fans. I think they hoped he'd be back multiple times and he kept having setbacks.

    It's not what is "normal"...

    No question NBA teams overpay for middle talent players, but you were talking about top players right?

    Are you implying that the NFL draft compensation DOES make up for losing star players in free...

    Not a traditional one that is the center of the offense, back to the basket banger. But he did occur to me. I don't know why they listed him as a 4.

    He might stay, but the Hornets are notoriously cheap and LaMelo seems like the sort to care a lot about his legacy and not just the money.

    The problem, if you want to call it that, is in legacy. Are people going to continue to overrate Beal and use the lack of team around him as an excuse.

    That said I appreciate when a great player...
