Problem is, when does it end? People say "well Player X deserves to play on a good team" and then the teams end up get contracted, and then the teams get better, so some teams will still be worse, and player Y now deserves to be on a better team, so contract some other teams, etc... I don't disagree with perhaps a couple of small market teams, but there has to be a line.

Easily my favourite thing about the NBA is the fact that on any night a team can beat another one, and it still rings true. Yeah, so some teams win more often than others, but occasionally teams like OKC (and Portland, if it hadn't been screwed by injuries) pop up and become great teams through the draft - exactly the reason why the draft is how it is.

Way to throw your fellow employees under the bus, LBJ. Less jobs for everyone.

If this were a couple years ago I'd agree. But right now there's actually more superteams than usual, more than any year in the '80s, so it's all good. But I'm definitely worried what happens in maybe 5 years or so. Hopefully it won't be like it was in the early 2000s.

it'll never happen, but why can't we all agree he is 100% correct and we should respect the fact that he spoke the truth, as unpopular as that may be.

Contraction would obviously make this harder not easier ... think.

Once again LeBron says something fairly non-controversial and completely obvious ... and everyone freaks the f*** out

Relax guys, he's no actually "The Chosen One"; he's just a good basketball player with some opinions. He can't actually contract teams on a whim

he said it would be better for the league. You mean the organization? Yes, it will likely turn a higher profit. As far as employees, including players it is much worst for them. there is less money in the pot for the same number of players, meaning less max contracts which trickles down.

Also, how far do you contract. If you really want it to be better for the league then it would prob need to be at least 4 teams. How do you pick those for teams.

Take the Grizzlies for example, OJ Mayo and Rudy Gay are so f****** talented, Marc Gasol is also very good, but the organization they play for is a joke, and they will continue to have sub 500 record year after year. Get rid of them and other crap teams. Combine crap teams from conferences like the Hornets and Grizzlies. Twolves and Kings

PG: Chris Paul
SG: OJ Mayo
SF: Rudy Gay
PF: David West
C: Marc Gasol


PG: Johnny Flynn
SG: Tyreke Evans
SF: Michael Beasley
PF: Kevin Love
C: DeMarcus Cousins


and let's start playing basketball


This is not good, it's only gonna kill the talent. 1 ball not enough touches for some of these players to flourish

Contraction is a non-controversial subject?

Actually, contraction would probably make winning a championship more difficult.
