I follow it during the playoffs, otherwise not a big fan. Yeah, a couple good games yday. Kind of made my day too  :happy1: when the 76'ers lost as I'm not real big on Embid their center. Everybody raves about how good he is, 1 of the best centers ever :tut: & the guy has yet to play a 1/2 a season since he turned pro. :thumbs: Was pulling for Denver in the other 1 though :sad: as their young big guy, Jokic, is fun to watch. :cool:

The NBA seems to be embracing the new reality where the inmates run the asylum, which is to say the star players decide where they want to play, who they want to play with, and who gets to coach them.  Sports shows love the "drama" because it gives them something to talk about. 

I think there will be more and more stars hopping from team to team on short term deals.  No one will want to sign long term just in case a better opportunity presents itself.  Or if you are signed to a contract, as in the case of Jimmy Butt<bleep>, you just quit on your team and demand a trade.

The NBA don't care who plays where as long as revenues stay high, but the new model is tough on a fan base if you aren't in a glamorous city.  Time will tell.

As for me...  I'd rather watch NHL Playoffs.

A lot of max $ deals in the league as that's the only way they can keep anybody. Most are $35-$40 mil a year for 4 - 5 years type deals.  :crazy: So how much $ are the owners makin? :bonk: :sad:
