Not enter a draft, where if you are one of the best players you will surely land on one of the year in year out ****tiest teams, not even be able to negotiate a contract and having to play there for 5 seasons.

This draft silliness needs to stop.


Football/Soccer is played all around the world. There is not a league like the NBA that all the best players go to. Draft and salary cap are essential for the NBA and it's franchises. It allows most teams to have a star player.

Without draft and salary cap, It would not be fair. Lakers could have a team like:

PG: Paul
SG: Kobe
SF: Lebron
PF: Garnett
C: Howard
