    But the last part cannot be true. They have a certain amount of money they have to spend. And if too many owners use the "pressure relief valve" and use all the soft cap exceptions, players lose...

    But it doesnt just apply to players at the end of their deal. Even if the Cavs would have to take a dead cap hit due to different contract structures and got virtually no space this year, they would...

    But that doesn't make it right. And the NBA players have to put a percentage of cash in escrow, so if too many teams go over the soft cap, all of their salaries can be suppressed. It still comes down...

    Not super relevant to the discussion, but I actually disagree with that bottom part. Everyone says guaranteed contracts are better for the players, and that's simply not broadly true. Guaranteed...

    Doesn't the NBA have some of the most player movement in all sports? LeBron has played for 3 franchises, 4 if you count Cleveland twice for his two stints. Durant has played for 3 orgs. Kawhi has...

    I don't think think it does though. The sports are way too different to think the financial structure is the only thing seperating them.

    The advantage the NFL system has is that the hard cap and...

    Part of what makes hard caps possible is the NFLs non guaranteed contracts. If you sign a RB to a deal and he blows his knee out, you can get out of that deal. That doesn't happen in the NBA. Sure...

    Part of it is location, but stars are a bigger part of it. The bucks haven't been tier 1 buyout guys but Marvin Williams cmae lats year and he's a higher end buyout guy last year. I tbink location...

    Agree. I didn't catch last night, but as a whole, Rodgers has probably been the best one outside of the guys familiar with the show. Richards and Jennings were probably better, but they've also been...

    I look at a guy liek budda baker. Granted, this tweet was prior to last year, so it doesn't include his snaps last year, but his career snaps by position prior to last year were 882 at slot, 708 at...

    I agree the contract structure hurts the league. It encourages super teams even more and removes money from the equation for the best free agents. That being said, I think we all also recognize that...

    This is exactly it. Sure they aren't great players but even mediocre players acquired for nothing to fill 15-20 minutes a night can have a huge impact on a series.

    Your basing assumptions on a consistent long term trend that's only recently hit a small bump in the road. For the very short term, the NBA may experience a slight cap decrease or flattening. But...

    You're talking about unattainable guys. Paul is not really a closer. I don't understand how Chris Paul has never made the NBA Finals but is somehow this elite closer and elite winner. Kyrie has...

    Raven Greene and Will Redmond both played 33% of the snaps last year. Some of that was with Savage missing some time. Amos missed a few snaps bit nothing major. Scott also pulled out about 10% of the...

    But from a TV perspective, the long term risk is relatively low. The league generally knows now how to relatively mitigate it. The fans in the stands thing doesn't impact the TV deal. The NBA has...

    You guys are focusing way too much on the results of a once in a lifetime global pandemic and not the big picture. Maybe the money gets shifted a bit due to pandemic, but when we're talking long term...

    Real question though. Is Jrue a max player? Probably not. Does Jrue get a max offer on the open market? I would say he probably does or at least gets super close. It's gotten to the point where...

    Not as big as '16 but I think there will absolutely be a decent bump. But it doesn't take a ton of searching to already see the conversations. The leagues deal tripled in 2016. Rumors now are they...

    Defensive 3 seconds isn't going to solve the problem. Guys can lay back pretty easily already. The problem with traditional rim protecting bigs isn't that they can't sit in the paint due to 3...

    I agree. I wouldnt at all be shocked if we go safety somewhat early. We play a ton of nickel and dime and we could absolutely play an extra safety in those spots. Savage could potentially play more...

    Agree. Sure, we didn't upgrade the roster. We brought the band back together mostly. That being said, we were probably the best team in the NFC last year. We lost in the NFC Championship becuase a...

    Yes, the ratings are falling, but ratings are falling across the board. But generally speaking, live sports are decreasing at a much slower rate than most of the other prime time showings. With the...

    This is simply not true. NFL just got a huge deal. The NBA is as popular as ever. The RSN thing is a negotiating issue not a lack of interest issue. People don't watch "normal" TV en masse anymore....

    I think one thing as a whole that's surprised me this offseason is that there really haven't been a ton of phenomenal deals yet. There's been a few guys who have gone for cheaper than they probably...
