    Why do people ***** about it when a player signs with a contender?

    Why do some people here complain so much when a player signs with a contender? What do you expect? If hes a free agent/bought out/released do you think hes going to sign with a ****ing losing team? You would do the same thing. But then if a player rejects a contending team for a bigger pay day, you criticize him for that too. So in order to be a decent person the player has to sign a minimum contract with a sucky to for you guys to be happy??/

    btw, im not talking about star players. im talking about regular role players

    I'll admit it. Sounds about right. Also, it's challenge when you like a player and they sign with a team that you hate. That's hard to handle.

    Bug's me when a player gets traded then wants a buy out and picks his team. Just seems like a way to get some thing for nothing but really I don't care that much cause usually there just average players

    For the most part, I couldn't care less.

    But I will say that I'd like talent to be a little more spread out than it is right now. From my personal experience, it is MUCH easier to predict the NBA champions than it is to predict the champions of other sports. I feel like this takes away from the competitive nature a little bit when playoff time comes around, especially in the east where there are teams below .500 that are in playoff contention.

    In closing, players are free to do what they want. I think it's great to choose winning over money...I just don't know that it is necessarily a great thing for the league.
    I'm a Lakers fan...BUT:

    1) No I don't think Kobe > MJ

    2) No I don't think LeBron sucks.

    3) No I don't think it's funny to continuously make jokes about Charles Osborne.

    A couple of reasons, one good, one bad.

    1) For the love of competition. When some guy just jumps on the boat thats sailing the strongest and the fastest people feel like that underminds the process of building up a team and allowing it to develop organically. Essentially the players jumping on ship get **** for skipping the organic process, and for cutting to the front of the line.

    2) Some people are just haters. Even some people who are generally good fans can have short binges of hater-dom. It's likely that fans of rival teams feel threatened by veteran acquisitions.

    why,those that trade for player like that want his contract and not necessarily him.

    i think its a bit of jealousy.those that ***** are already resentful towards top teams to start with(while their team is either mediocre or bad).its not giving thought to the quality of the player,that doesnt matter.its just the fact of seeing those top teams(whom they already resent for being good/elite) adding to it and seeing their team not.

    the haves-will always like the current system and see nothing bad/wrong
    the have nots-will always complain about the system and want it changed until they(or their team)become the haves
