You have to remove max contracts. That's the only real problem with the current system.

You can form superteams because you can strip the roster bare and get 3 of them and fill out the rest with vets. Boom instant contender.


You remove the max salary and all of a sudden players are being paid what they should be.

If LeBron wants to have his superteams he better be willing to take tens of millions less per year than what he would make otherwise.

If he does that at least it's commendable in a way. Like Brady taking way less than he's worth with the Pats.

You gotta remove the situations like the Conley's of the league being paid more than Kawhi Leonard will make next year. Isn't Conley making 40+ million for the next couple seasons?

Remove the max, let them sign for however much they can negotiate for.

I dunno about this. It seems like it will lead to unintended consequences. Like the league's biggest stars will rot in small market teams while being paid $100M and never winning a championship.

It's Barkley's and Malone's career that made the late '00 Celtics & the Heatles. Not Jordan's.

Players don't want to be either of them. Of course Lebron was and will also be compared to MJ, but KD, KG and the likes? They're in the Barkley territory and rings are the seperator.

Yea it just results in a lot of great players having terrible careers while even the supposed "real" fans rank them as chokers and empty stat losers because they lost with teams that shouldnt have won. The years where guys are content to lose forever and make money are over. Guys play to win now. They will lose out on a few million and piss off some fans who dont actually care about them just to not end up on a "Best to never...." list ranked under guys who happened to land next to other stars.

I know, but it was a 1-time deal though. Not every 3 years or something

Conley is closer to 30. Was a lot when he signed it. Not so much now

Bran was easily on that list before he won his first chip due to forming a superteam. I remember him getting Elgin Baylor talks before the 2012 chip. Even with superteams for all of his rangs, he could still easily be 1/9 or even 0/9 depending on a couple of bounces/ref calls. Without superteams? I have a feeling he retires ringless.
