    As long as I get to see good quality basketball from at least one team, I'm fine with it

    Yeah I'm not too fun of it either but the NBA changes in different eras. It really sucks for small market teams though, they get these lotto picks then after the players become elite and well recognized they demand trades or go sign with a big market. Its a business first and these teams will deal them too for the best of their organization so.

    I think it puts a whole lot pressure on teams to draft well. I mean, look at small markets like OKC. If they hadn't drafted well, there's no doubt KD is out of there first chance he gets. Now, nearly no chance he leaves because they have a very solid core. Tim Duncan wouldn't have stayed in SA all those years had he not been put together with 4 other Hall of Famers.

    Either way, like it or not, the new CBA is penalizing teams that draft too well, ala OKC. We'll see a whole lot more 1-2 superstar teams now.

    I can't agree with this statement superstars wanting/forcing to join together have not been going on since the 90's and earlier. Only two-three superstar players come to mind that did it in the 80's & 90's, Clyde Drexler & Barkley at age 32 & 33 teaming up with Hakeem and Moses Malone teaming up with Dr. J. I could also add Wilt, Baylor and West to the list because Wilt did force to be traded to a western team(Seattle, Los Angeles, or San Diego).

    Other than those situations you rarely seen superstar franchise players force their way to play with other stars like today players. All I could say is that the league is changing and I hope we see twice as more superstar caliber players come out of college.

    Guys, it's not that all the NBA stars want to play together. There are just way too many stars in NBA because the talent pool is getting bigger and bigger. To beat the best, you need your own squad, that's what it's become now.

    I'm going to take a wild guess, but these two accounts belong to the same person (or they know each other).

    I love Super Teams! If Howard can find his way onto the Clippers or OKC, I would really like that; and that huge *** elephant in the room that everyone pretends not to see, as they nonchalantly walk around it, yeah his/her name is contraction.

If Beas can be what he was when he was a rookie (he won't hell be better) then the heat are coming away with another steal.

    How old are you 10?

    Was the NBA boring when the Pistons had Isiah Dumars Rodman Laimbeer?

    When the Bulls had Jordan Pippen and Rodman?

    When the Celtics had Bird Parish and McHale?

    When the Lakers had Magic, Kareem, Worthy, Rambis?

    Or heck is the NBA boring now with LeBron Wade and Bosh?

    It's not exactly the fault of the players.

    Back in the day, the game was far more physical. That led to dirty plays, hard hits, and players genuinely hating each other.

    In today's day and age with the social media and all that, players on opposing teams befriend each other.

    Essentially, you're saying you hate players that want to play with their friends.

    One of these things is not like the other...

    It is what it is in the league but this hasn't happened before where guys in their prime have openly maneuvered to get to play with the certain players they want to play with. I'm not saying its bad but I hate when people take these older examples where not one of these players you mentioned was signed as a free agent. This hasn't been happening and I hate when people say that. Yes there have been lots of great teams and player combos but it happened through drafting, player development, and good team building from the front office to coaching.
