I could care less until a All-Star goes. I don't give a shit if these garbage and bencher guys are leaving. But when they start taking guys like Lebron, Kobe, JKidd, CP3, Bosh etc. Then I will get just plain rattled

we steal their talent, but when the turn around and fight back it's wrong? i hope we lose talent to europe. maybe the league will focus on becoming the elite league it once was that had europeans dreaming of coming over to.

Ginobili played in Europe prior to coming over though if I'm not mistaken

FA's going to the Euro teams... it's not even a fair trade. We take all of their best players and they get some of our bench players.

Having a few or even a bunch of 7th+ men go over there is only going to improve their game and improve the players around them. This will increase the interest in the game world wide.

I don't like the idea of the Euro teams being farm teams to the NBA, but a FA farm system isn't a terrible idea, at least IMO.

I asked this somewhere else and I'm just curious. Has it always been like this every offseason? Where everyday Euro teams take one NBA player at a time..?
