  • Great job Alex...enjoy all your articles

    I like the Beasley look lol You just dont see that anymore.

    All those Pistons missed practice! That is crazy...those are some high profile guys too.

    Big Market...im thinking you know but if you dont, i guess it means Chicago,Boston,New York,LA an whoever else is in a big city. With all these stars joining forces...the NBA is going to have more terrible teams then ever. Who goes to a Raptor game? Or a Cav game? Bucks? Bobcats? Bad for the league imo. Luckily the Bulls are one of the good teams in the league.

    Thanks. I appreciate it. :)

    The Pistons are a mess. It started with Knee-Mac showing up fat on top of Ben Wallace just being a con man collecting a check. Terribly generally managed team. I don't know why anyone would wanna buy that mess.

    You see? NYC, Chicago, LA are extreme examples. Money and roster spots are still scarce and there are only so many head coaches that can coach there. Toronto's more cosmopolitan that Americans give them credit for. After a handful of markets, you're really looking at the difference between smart general managing/coaching competing and mediocre-to-bad of the same failing. I'm not saying the disparity doesn't exist. I asked the question because it isn't as black and white in terms of power balance in sports as it's made out to be. Let's be real, it's not like there are NBA teams in the countryside.

    Also, that's kinda' the nature of the beast. Sports are competitive games, the league are associations of competitive franchises, but it's entertainment over all. The revenue comes from consumers and advertisers spending money on the product -- marketing, TV, merchandise -- and players are individuals in a relatively freer market country with the recognized right to be enterprising in a diverse manner. My point's that there's no way to keep entertainers from not gravitating toward monster markets. That's entertainment.
