after seeing all the recent reports of outrageous signings, and outrageous trades, I can't believe I was so naive to think the Owners had actually won the Lockout. The owners can talk about having the need to limit their spending and cutting down on their loses, but at the end of the day, all the BRI percentage drop won't a make a single difference if they keep up their reckless overspending on over priced 'talent'. Yes, certain middling players will recieve less through the new CBA, but more often than not you will get players like Tyson Chandler and Marc Gasol cashing in on the jackpot of Fiscal irresponsibility on the part of the NBA owners and management.
Adding insult to injury, the Lakers are on the verge of destroying any fairness that's left in the league with the Chris Paul mega deal. If Dwight Howard goes to LA, the fans should lockout the NBA for this ridiculous pattern of superstars completely hijacking their entire team's well being for their own selfish pursuits. The recent mega deal would be a clear sign that there is zero balance in the NBA, the Lakers were supposedly on the decline given their age and the salary limitations they had, but in one stroke, the NBA allows the Lakers to remain on top of the league for years to come.
Will someone please explain to me why we lost two month of basketball? As of right now, it seems like it was for a pointless cause, undeserving players will continued to be ludicrously overpaid, star players will become ever more egotistical prima donas continually holding themselves above the rest of their team, and small markets will still continually be penalized because they lack the glamor and glitz of L.A., Miami, Chicago or New York.
