At this point I actually think contraction would be really helpful for league parity. Drop the worst 4-6 teams and at the same time turn the D-League into a bona fide version of bball AAA or like the OHL/AHL. Then in a couple years when the talent spreads itself a little better you can have a system like soccer with relegation and what not so we don't have to ever see a team like the Bobcats play against a real NBA team.

I'm not convinced that it works all that well, or that they get by the Thunder, let alone the Heat. They had better hope that it works quickly, because they don't have a huge window before they become Orlando. And that's if Dwight stays. That will be another problem - they will start off with the west coast Mickey mouse story of distractions about what the guy that can show once and or all that he is not Shaq will do. It'll be interesting.

So can we just veto this season, give the lakers the title, and move on to 2013/14 season?

Agreed 100%. Dwight Howard went from one of the coolest guys in the nba to probably it's biggest douche bag. Artest is a prick, metta or not. Kobe is just love, cocky bastard but that's always how he's been.

Stars hold teams hostage. The league allows and promotes it.

LA stole Pau, now they steal Howard.

Basically what Jeff just said, and its been confirmed that both HOU and BRK offered much much better deals. I still dont get it.

And with LAs offence, Kobe is going to have to adjust his game a bit, or Brown is actually going to have to learn how to set up an offensive system that can make Kobe posting up with the bigs on the other side of the floor work with correct spacing. This is going to be a big year for Kobe and his reputation because hes going the guy thats going to need to adjust his game the most. If he continues to try and take 25 shots a night he'll be the one criticized to hell.

totally agree. Miami certainly aren't likeable but they're nothing compared to lakers in the horrible stakes.
