Ouch! The truth hurts when it's that bad!
Read the post then post.
He said " Ask yourself which franchise the Blazers are closer to right now"
Sad fact is (And I'm really sorry to point this out) The Blazers are much closer to the Kings than the Warriors.
Why, in hell, would the Knicks do that? Lakers can have hope. They are at the front of dream for scenarios. I dream for a lottery win. About the same odds for getting that done.
That's the point. Give the Lakers hope ... then pull the rug out from under them.
I mean i think the max is too much of a percent of the cap. It still favors large market, richer teams who have the money to go over the cap.
Not just Lillard’s. And really its the cap itself that is out of control due to the out of control tv contracts due to out of control advertising money.
Mariners 20 plus years without playoffs.
Virtually everything I listed has changed in 3 years. The Blazers are better organization than the Kings, but they are closer to the Kings organization than the Warriors right now. Which one of my line items do you disagree with? They're pretty much all fact based assessments (minus the ownership)
Is this an April Fool’s joke? The Kings are the worst organization in all of sports. 16 straight years with no playoffs and that likely won’t change. Blazers won a championship 45 years ago.
You got me for a second!
August fools joke?
It's literally the same percentage of the cap it has been for awhile.
The only argument (which I've been saying for years) is that super max contracts should count the same as a regular max. That way you don't penalize small market teams that keep their stars.
I don't get your argument. The cap is tied to a percentage of the league revenue. If your argument is the cap and contracts are too high you're literally arguing that the rich owners should be getting more of the pie. That can't possibly be what you're suggesting, is it?
yeah, m’s and Sacto are 1A and 1B. The M’s literally just collected that bankrolled cash while Ichiro and as in uni. They didn’t even try to do more. I love Dame, but even Ichiro’s loyalty is 5x more (and Dame is a loyal motherfucker).
No no. There should be a cap on the advertising as well. Simply too much money all around.
Big sports is like big business.
The NBA is a machine, if the money wasn't there do you think owners would pay them? Think of the entrainment and fanatic frenzy the highly paid players have contributed too. You and I would be on this site if the association wasnt a multi billion dollar league. Now you have college football trying to capitalize the money to be had.
Easy to be loyal when they give you fat stacks and all you have to do is go out and get a couple singles. No requirement to win any games. Most love Ichiro, but those were some dark days for me as an M's fan.
The money could be cut in half and there would still be millionaires and billionaires in sports.
I am just saying, in a time when the whole world is reevaluating the economy, priorities, etc, money in sports is over the top and could be used to help many other things going on.
I don't blame any one entity, i just believe its out of control.
