>Lebron takes his talents to south beach
>Dan Gilbert rages like a phaggot and says the Heat won't win a title before the Cavs
>Dan Gilbert is a phaggot all season long because he knew the lockout was in the offseason
>Dan Gilbert rallies up all the small market teams for a salary cap not because he wants to even the playing field but because he wants to fuk Lebron. The Heat would only get better after last season bc of salary cap abuse, Dan Gilbert wants to put in the cap so that the Heat can't put pieces around the big 3.

No sorry, but Lebron isn't the reason for the lockout. Money is the reason for the lockout. The owners have cooked the books to fake a loss and they are trying to shove a pay cut down the players throats. The players have tried to negotiate because they believe they will lose in court.

It's all about the split. The cap is already gonna be a luxury tax based one. I doubt we have a season. NBA players are doing a lot better these days at saving their money.

The reason I feel like it's less about the money and more about the cap is because the cap hasn't been really negotiated much (if you've looked at the owner's proposed cap it's retarded), while the players/owners have somewhat negotiated the revenue split. We at least have a 50-53% range which'll probably get renegotiated as a part of salary cap concessions.

And of course the tax is gonna be a luxury based one, it's already that. There was no chance ever of a hard cap coming into play. The luxury tax penalties right now proposed by the owners effectively create a hard cap though which is the biggest dispute imo.


The league’s reported tax proposal was restrictive enough for the players on Monday to characterize it as essentially a hard cap. If you’re going to tax teams at an 8-to-1 ratio, the argument goes, big-money teams will stop spending so much, and when they do, players will have lost a key source of free-agency leverage.

Meanwhile on the other end we have


In his frustration Thursday night NBA Players Association head Billy Hunter said he felt there was a divide between big market and small market owners. He said that some big-market owners were ready end the lockout.

It's Dan Gilbert and his small market phaggotry that's holding up this lockout.

It's owners being pissed that owners keep signing role players and interchangeable parts to huge contracts.

i'm actually inclined to agree with the red. cuban came out and argued for an end to the salary cap and dolan and a couple others agreed. you can probably guess which cities those owners were from.

Its the NBA players wanting money. They need the money to feed their families.
