honestly f**k the nba.

The NBA is like an online video game---where the small market teams are playing with a dial-up connection and have lag, while the Lakers have the cheat codes.

Glad the new CBA fixed all these problems.

Small market teams can now keep their marquee free agents (Chris Paul, Dwight Howard)
And the average players will no longer be overpaid (Chuck Hayes 4 years $20M)

I like Chuck Hayes, but 3 years, $9M would be more like his value


Honestly, I hope the NBA folds.

said small market teams should pony up for a better connection then.

i guess san antonio qualifies as a big market then? not like they've won anything in the last 15 years.

Well, there aren't too many Tim Duncans after David Robinsons. Guys who are HOFs and WANT to stay with their small market teams. The Spurs will go down hill now (beginning with this year). And that is with an awesome coach and great scouting.

Seriously... It was all BS.
So is Houston included in this proposed deal?

And if so is Pau all we are getting? We better not send that Knicks 1st rd pick to NO.

I understand Scola and Martin arent superstars, but I dont understand this from the rockets level, is this a way of getting Nene to come to Houston? Who plays SG for us, I'm confused.

so now we're making exceptions to this small market teams have no chance argument?

No, not an exception but definitely a rarity. The Thunder got Durant which is great for them, but like I said it's extremely rare. The odds of getting a guy like that are bleak for a small market team.

Bottom line, small market teams are at a HUGE disadvantage to put it lightly. You said that in the Laker thread even.


Really?! I hate the NBA some times

tough. life isn't fair. small market fans spend all day making excuses when they can't contend wtih the big dogs. plenty of small market teams have been competitive and won championships.

detroit, san antonio, new orleans, utah, orlando, cleveland (they had their run), sac, portland, okc...

then there's major market teams that suck(ed): knicks, boston (pre big three), clippers...

dallas was a big spender year after year but was mostly a failure until last year

do we even consider the heat to be a major market? florida fans are terrible frontrunners.


disadvantage? i'll give you that. major? no. you can compete as a small market team, but you gotta make good decisions and also get a good draft pick instead of forever staying near the bottom of the lottery. tanking does pay.

This is one of the dumber parts of the trade. The rockets gave up 2 really good players and draft picks for Pau Gasol??

Ridiculous

Are you serious? Yes, it's a major disadvantage. Small market teams have a few good years and are then f'd for a decade (except for the Spurs, and this may happen to them soon). The big guys with all the banwagon fans may have a few s*it years, but always buy themselves out of it. The Knicks are an exception because Isiah Thomas is so dumb he defies any logic.

Yeah, Miami is a big time market. Their fair weather fans will show up if they are winning just like all the teams. And yeah, small market teams have to constantly hit their picks because the good ones usually leave. While the banwagon teams just buy their s*it.
