  1. Shoe companies pay mega millions to players and they want their client in a major market. This is why Kawhi left Toronto. He’s the flagship star for New Balance. Cuban is being pragmatic and showing why he BECAME a rich dude, not a born one.

  2. Governor is such a dumbass term lol way to go NBA. Why are people so sensitive nowadays, damn. You should be proud that Jordan is an owner, not change the term to make others feel ok.

  3. Brian windhorst just compared the votes each team has to an “electoral college” claiming the smaller teams can out vote the bigger market teams. It’s the popular vote you tool. Didn’t play basketball and certainly never took a history class. And why the fuck are you calling them governors?

  4. Just cut out half the league or more. So then you can just have super duper teams. Then all those players will be making less. Then We’ll fucking see how these players feel.

  5. Create a loyality rule (Nowitzki/kobe rule). A Player who is under contract maybe 5 years, without a trade or he left vor another Team, 25% percent of his contract will not impact für salary cap on their teams. Players who are there die 7 years 35%, 10 years 50%, something like this. Maybe this could help

  6. A big difference between NBA (or all major professional sports leagues) and the soccer leagues in Europe is that the teams in Europe benefit much more from their sporting success. The more successful teams are also more attractive for the players, it doesn't matter much if it's a big/small market. If a team sucks for years, they can't get top stars to join them. But in the NBA the big markets like the Lakers or Knicks can suck really badly and still have a good chance to sign the best players. I don't like this aspect of the NBA, and when the players get more power to choose where they want to play, it will become a bigger problem.

  7. If you want to protect small markets, here is how you can do it: Allow teams to make longer-term contracts with players. This way, a small market can discover a 7 footer that no one knows about, train him, turn him into an excellent NBA player and keep him for 15 years. There are plenty of undrafted kids that if given the right chance, could become amazing NBA players. Let the small markets sign them to 15 years exclusivity and you'll see some of these teams truly thrive. What's the point of training and developing players if you know that they're just going to leave in 4 years while asking for 10x more money? Good coaches can take a D-League player and turn him into an NBA star given the right work ethic and mindset.

  8. I would actually love if this goes all the way it can. Let the talent coalesce in the major markets. Fans stop supporting small markets and they start folding. Less players start getting drafted because there are less teams. Interest in the league wanes and revenue decreases. That means less sports talk shows and less talking heads to talk on those talk shows. The NFL rules the roost happily ever after.

  9. What the NBA needs to tell the players union.. Say if these small market teams go out of business.. and league has fewer teams.. = fewer players, =reduced contracts, and =smaller tv revenue.. You think NBAPA will perk up and start listening?

  10. Supermax needs to not be counted against the cap. Like the Designated player rules in other leagues. Or the amount over the max that = supermax $$ should not be counted for the cap.
