Bandits.And Dewey, like CP3, refused to sign an extension and still made his way to a stud team, which is amazing. It's like baseball, except instead of prospects that aren't worth a shit going for the stud players you get young stars involved.BTW: Let's not feel bad for Orlando here, the only team to do a worse job than the Cavs building around their star is the Magic. They fucked this thing up in incredible ways and proceeded to let Dewey control the org for half a year before dealing him.It's far less about these great orgs being on the coasts (outside of the Lakers) and far more about who has talent to win titles.

Completely untrue, his ego and wallet desired and demanded Brooklyn. He made them his only choice ages ago.

Too many guys sat there and watched KG waste away in Minny.Build a winner and you can keep your stars anywhere. Sell out for a fake contender for a year, get yourself in cap hell and you are completely fucked.Plus, in the MLB you trade guys for shit sandwiches, in the NBA you get real returnsI mean, seriously, have you looked at that Orlando roster post that one bullshit run to the Finals?And if we want to talk about disgruntled football players demanding trades over the years we can, because more franchised football players have been traded in the last decade than NBA studs.

Oh.... and if it were a 6-team league and the Cavs players were entered in a dispersal draft, they'd have one fucking player picked. And he'd probably be a backup PG.

OldDawg wrote:But my point eye is that, using your logic, Booz would have never left because the Cavs were drafting good solid players. He darted as soon as he could. Regardless of how good we think he is. After we got LeBron, it was kinda hard to draft good players around him because we were winning more games and didn't have the opportunity to get great players. We got stuck to the trade and FA route. If there's a 6-team league, how many of those teams were built through the draft? One? Two tops. The very top teams have one, at most two, players that they drafted that are significant factors to them actually being elite.The way to draft a great team is to have 2 or 3 crappy teams in a row and draft well. Er, like the Cavs just had...

e0y2e3 wrote:I don't get WTF you are talking about frankly.1) The Knicks were the only team in the NBA that would offer an uninsurable Amare a max contract and the worse his knee gets the more fucked they are, terrible example.2) Mil has nothing to trade for any superstar right now, notta, zilch, etc.3) I am not in ANY WAY saying these guys won't run for the big markets and glammer after their second contracts if you fail to create a great, winning atmosphere around them. My only point is that if you do they will stay. The league is in no way perfect and it's pretty fucking hard to find them a young sidekick to run with and a great compliment of side-kicks... if you fail to do that in 6/7 years they are gone and running to the big markets.There is ZERO arguing that they prefer being in a meh situation in NYC with another FA over staying on a capped out mess in the midwest where they are worshipped. My only point is if you are lucky enough to pull off putting a strong core around them THEY WILL stay. Show me the FA that left a true young nucleas/title conteder?

Stupid for years and fuck-nuts like those two whose talent exceeds their brains go there.The mid-market teams need to be fucking perfect. It's next to impossible unless you get once in generation talents AND PEOPLE like Durant and Duncan.The league is full of knuckleheads. They are attracted lights like big, stupid, entitled moths.You need to be damn near flawless as an ORL, CLE, MIL, TOR, UTAH, DEN to pull it off.I'm fine going to 8 teams. Fucking nuke shit like those teams above. Put two teams in LA, MIA, NY and one in BOS, one in CHI for all I care. It'd be better quality and more entertaining than this shit now.Apologies to guys who live and breathe it but it's a fucking joke everywhere.Although a lot of human debris like Deshawn Stevenson and Chris Anderson would be on the streets and unaccounted for.
