Default Rose: NBA should do away with salary cap

Quote:
Bulls' Rose wishes NBA would do away with salary cap

Posted Oct 26 2011 7:07AM - Updated Oct 26 2011 10:17AM

HONOLULU (AP) -- Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose has established himself among the elite NBA players in just three seasons. His salary, however, doesn't come anywhere near the top in the league, let alone his own team.
Because of rookie salary scale restrictions, the league's reigning MVP earns about $5.5 million a season - far less than other NBA stars. The scale is on the table between the league and players' association during its extended labor dispute that could result in more games being canceled and might wipe out the season.
Rose, in Hawaii this week visiting military personnel as part of the Hoops for Troops USO Tour, will undoubtedly earn a lot more when he becomes a free agent at the end of his four-year, $22.5 million contract, depending on the new agreement, of course.
"I wish it was back like where it was in the old days where there wasn't a cap,'' Rose told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "Back in the day, they were giving guys coming out of college with multimillion-dollar contracts, so why stop it now? The game is growing. There's no need to stop it.''

Rose can't even spell "salary cap".

Every top draft pick would come into the league with the ego of LeBron James if they could be offered multi-million dollar contracts right out of college/high school. The league would be filled with that sort of whiny entitlement complex in a matter of years.

I love Rose but completely disagree with him on this.

Too bad he wouldn't be saying this if he wasn't playing for the Chicago Bulls. Put him on the Charlotte Bobcats or some small market franchise and he'll beg for mercy for a salary cap.

It's funny how the union lies and says that the owners want to kill the mid-class guys, when it's the opposite and then you have the rose's and Duran't, preaching no salary restriction that obviously would decimate the NBA mid class.

If you don't like seeing Luke Walton, Darko, or Michael Redd making millions to be scrubs, then you should be agreeing with Rose.

The NBA absolutely can't do away with the Salary Cap. If they did the Lakers, Knicks, Celtics and Bulls would compete for the championship every year. Can you imagine the Knicks with Amare, Bosh, Wade and Lebron? Because, that's what would have happened with no cap!

Getting rid of the salary cap would be terrible. It's already basically the same teams competing. There would absolutely only be a few teams competing if there was no salary cap.

No not really because if there was no salary cap nobody would play for the Bobcats lol.

There would be like 4-5 super teams in Boston, LA, Miami, NY and Chicago... then again, baseball manages to get different teams in the world series so maybe it wouldn't be that bad.

It's funny that people complain mid tier players are overpaid, then when someone suggests doing away with a salary cap they say OMG they then begin to worry about mid tier players. You can't have it both ways
