Plenty? where? I'm not seeing them. Is that talent sustainable? Why has the talent been diluted so badly in this league? Yes, even the worst NBA players can kick my ass, big whoop. That's like saying the Incredible Hulk beating the shit out of a midget is an accomplishment. Legal adults can purchase guns, doesn't mean that everyone should be able to.

The NBA perhaps wouldn't have players working hard to get a big contract, then virtually disappearing when getting it because they got their payday and have jack for maturity. We wouldn't have big men drafted off of potential then becoming busts, but big men who have a proven skill set being worthy of drafted.
