    He's upset about his ranking in the ESPN top 100 players for this season. He's just whining. Although there are some issues in the rankings.

    I've been trying to keep my mind off of it, but's it's difficult.

    I'm going to miss Tony Allen.

    It's crazy to say with Canley and Fatsol still on the team, but with Z-bo and TA gone, it feels like the end of an era.

    Your idea is basically like saying that everyone that graduates college with honors in the real world should go work for Exxon, Google, Monsanto, Amazon and Apple. None of the smartest people in America should ever go and try to start their own business. They should all consolidate into the biggest corporations and make them even more powerful to create an even larger monopoly on the world.

    This idea would completely ruin the NBA. You big market fucks that ESPN gets on their knees for every night would be happy because you would securely never have to worry about your team sucking. Just the location alone would guarantee the teams success for basically ever. Teams like Milwaukee, Cleveland (after Bron), Sacramento, Phoenix, OKC (after Westbrook) would essentially go out of business or get contracted because they would turn into nothing more than jobbers for the rest of the league. Many of the fans of those teams would just say fuck it and quit watching basketball all together because the league would be set up to give big market teams a clear advantage over the already free agency destination advantages that they already have.

    What do you mean there's no compelling argument for the draft? It creates parity. It gives teams a chance to improve if mistakes were made. It dissuades monopolies from being formed. It gives teams that aren't in NY, LA or Miami a chance to land franchise players. Who gives a shit if Phoenix or whatever other shitty team tanks the last 20 games of the season to build for the future. It doesn't harm the league nearly as much as consolidating the NBA into 6 super teams that just battle each other until the end of time.

    NBA never really had parity and it still doesn't. It's always about a couple dominant teams and a couple of also rans and a bunch of cans.

    As I've said, I have some misgivings about Faust's draft idea, but if the 'parity' case were so compelling, we wouldn't have the league we have now with the draft.

    Agreed.

    Gotta understand though that there are a lot of people in this world that don't understand the big picture of things.

    People that are cool with the NFL keeping on their suspension of Zeke despite charges being dropped and the bitch lying purely because the NFL likes to be a tyrant and there are a lot of spiteful fans out there ok with it as long as it's not their player despite not knowing its bad for the league.

    People ok with just letting the flood gates open letting in illegals not understanding that it dilutes our very own country letting in unskilled, poor people let a lone people with questionable backgrounds that could potentially increase the crime rate or chance for an act of terror.

    As a fan of the Lakers who would benefit from this I'm with ya. Yeah the system now isn't perfect but the proposed idea before us would eventually destroy the league.

    All of this reasoning is flawed [no offense]

    You are emotional about this issue because you're a Queens fan, but don't worry buddeh, the Queens will have a certain degree of attractiveness. Absolute shit franchises with shit rosters will be of interest to rookies who want mo shats right out the gate. In your entire rant you failed to even mention this aspect which makes it very hard to take you seriously on any level

    {<doc}

    Do you realize what the concepts of rookie maximums and salary caps are? They alone make it impossible for teams to horde the top young prospects season after season.

    The draft, meanwhile, is just a reward for failure. Same shit teams drafting busts year after year. The concept insults the intelligence of actual NBA experts
