Who says they deserve to play on winning teams? Not many talented youngsters get to play on winning teams at an early stage. Have to lose to understand what winning is. It's a rite of passage.

I dont even agree with Bron but that guys reasoning was so full of hate. It's hilarious.

I am against contraction as a whole.

They don't deserve sh-t. If they were such good players, they'd make THEIR teams winning teams. No one ever grasps that. If you want to play on a good team, win games for YOUR team. Then you'll be on a good team.

Wizards wouldn't go anywhere. DC is a big market. The Bobcats would probably have to fold.

Not much complaint there, but there are the ordinary people who work in teams' offices, the vendors, parking attendants, and other people who work at the local arena during home games, etc. And with the economy the way it is, you almost have to keep the NBA at 30 teams and just bite the bullet of watered-down talent for now.


Actually the Recession supports a contraction, not keeping it as is.

Lebron's own franchise should be contracted.

I love South Beach.. but Miami is the worst sports city in America. They don't deserve any sports franchises. Their fans are as fairweather as they get. The crowd at Heat games are seriously pathetic. They can't even show up on time to the games and can't sell out their home games, even with the Heat hype at epic proportions.

Look at Marlins' hme games. The place is a ghost town, and the Marlins have two MLB championships since 1996. Miami is great (especially the hotass women) but their fans are f'n sad.

They have a $hitty management. Do you think Kobe would have won an NBA title if he wasn't traded to the Lakers? Hell no. He's very lucky because he was given an opportunity to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers signed Shaquille O'Neal in 1996, and Phil Jackson became their head coach after the 1999 NBA Season.

The rest is history.

I strongly agree with what Lebron said, though I understand some people won't, because it's Lebron saying it.

Personally I'd substitute the Bobcats for the Wizards. At least the Wizards have history.

BTW, nice going by LeBron to rile up the Timberolves and the Nets against himself and his Miami teammates.

Keep the Wolves* and Wizards but get rid of the Bobcats and Kings instead.

Have a draft for the free agents to be.

*Minneapolis and St. Paul is a big market, and I think a lot of Wolves fans still support them.

Haters gonna hate. I don't understand why some posters on Insidehoops let their emotions cloud their judgments.

In practicality, I agree. But it would be a bad PR move.

Default Re: For once , i agree with Lebron

I'm glad Lebron said this, as I've been saying this since the season started.

The league really IS too watered down. Look at the schedule most nights and over half the games are completely unwatchable. So many of these teams are made up of 19 and 20 year old "prospects" and journeymen never-was'es, and they're all just out there fumbling the ball around. I've seen so many mind-numblingly sloppy games this season. On a given night you could have Sacramento playing Minnesota, Charlotte playing Detroit, New Jersey playing Toronto, Cleveland playing Washington, and Philadelphia playing the Clippers. That's absolutely horrific.

If you removed Sacramento and Charlotte, you could add Gerald Wallace, Stephen Jackson, Tyreke Evans, Carl Landry, Jason Thompson, Tyrus Thomas, DeMoron Cousins, Muhammed, Diaw, Augustin, Udrih etc. to the other bottom feeders and at least make them a little better, and also eliminate some of the awful games that pop up on the schedule each night.

I think the fans should try to push this to the league and make it known that this is something fans want to happen. I know it will suck for fans of a few teams, but let's face it, if you're in the bottom 2 in attendance there's not many fans to upset.
