What other sporting events actively market the ROAD TEAM SUPERSTARS. COME SEE LEBRON, knowing that nobody wants to see the piece of s**t crappy product that their own organization puts on the floor every f**king year.

It's a grand waste of time.


f**k that noise.

I got better things to do with my time.



I've outgrown this nonsense.

The NBA is a terrible league
Thats why I pay a lot more attention to the NFL and MLB

When its NFLseason not a single f**k is given about the NBA

I agree with you guys. It's becoming more and more difficult each year to watch the rich get richer. I'll never bandwagon one of the "super teams". I'm still with the Warriors...but let's honest...there's no way that we get a playoff spot unless we steal a few games from the Lakers and Clippers (in the Pacific Division). Yeah, every team has to play the full 82, but damn.
Ha. Keep drafting the way you guys have the last couple of years and avoid giving guys like David Lee massive contracts, and you'll be in the upper echelon of the league as well. Might I remind you that you guys drafted Ike Diogu head of the main piece that went out in this deal. No Bynum, no Howard in LA. You make your own luck. See NYK.

Lol, not a Lakers fan at all but can understand your excitement. Just don't forget the Eagles last year....

That being said, went into the Lakers thread and just to read the posts...

For a Warriors fan like me I hope the Lakers crash and burn, but will not troll in the thread... but basically the fans in there already say the title is a done deal. We shall see...

Two factors are needed to build a winning squad: competence and luck. And we could go back and forth arguing over which of these two factors plays a larger role in a teams' success.

But my point is, once you actually acquire that elusive impact franchise player......it's almost impossible to retain him. That guy wants to either play in a sexy market or play with his friends on a superteam.

There's a palpable lack of parity.

And maybe that's just the nature of the sport. Maybe it's impossible to have competitive balance in a league where a single transcendent player can turn you from the worst team in the league to the best team in the league.

But then, what's the point if you're a fan of a mid-market team.



Is the ultimate goal, for me as a fan of the Warriors, to hope that one day this organization will have competent enough management and enough luck to somehow land a transcendent player............and then have a window of only four years to find other elusive pieces to complement this player....and then pray that the guy doesn't leave anyway for Los Angeles or to pair up with some other superstar player in some sexy market.


I know that the NBA will never be the NFL.


But the NBA as it's currently constituted is flawed. And they have no intention to do anything about it. The NBA prefers a league without parity because superteams are easier to sell to the casual fans or the bandwagon fans.


The distribution of talent in this league is too thin for there to be 30 teams.
errbody in the club wanna play for the Lakers

Easy solution for the league if they want parity...hard salary cap. The penalty/luxury cap BS doesn't mean shat.

Partial solution for the Warriors....you are right...better management, better evaluation of talent. Get the f**k out of Oakland, build the arena on the waterfront in SF, change your name back to the San Francisco Warriors (like it was originally when they came to the bay) to bring back "The City" identity. This will make the market more "sexy" as you say, and players will actually consider this as a destination to play in.

Good post, I agree with everything you said

and I was just thinking. Honestly if we drafted a super-duper star and he demanded a trade to the Lakers or Dallas and we fulfilled it, I dont think I'd watch the NBA for a while. I'd be too pissed at how corrupt the league is. It pisses me off when it happens to teams i dont care about, I cant imagine how pissed I'd be if it happened to the Warriors.

That, AND do away with the stupid lottery nonsense. The reason the NFL has such parity is it is easy to climb out of the cellar because of the way the league is set up. You suck one year, you are rewarded with a high draft pick and a last place schedule. In the NBA (although unlikely), the worst team in the league one year could end up with the 4th pick, and the hardest schedule in the league.

I love the NBA, but there is a reason it is a distant third as far as my favorite sports.
