LeBron: NBA Might Be Better Without the Nets,*T-Wolves

PHOENIX — To LeBron James, the attraction of Saturday's Christmas Day game at Staples Center is not as much Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers as it is having so much star power in one place.

He said that's what made the NBA such a special place in the '80s, when just about every roster was loaded.

"You look back at it in the '80s," he said before Thursday night's game at US Airways Center against the Phoenix Suns, "you had probably 10 teams that had two or three All-Stars on one team, at least. You go from Portland, you go of course to the Bulls, the Lakers, Detroit, Boston, Houston."

James then offered an inventory of stars on each of those teams, before adding, "but it only happens every now and then now."

The Heat, of course, have that, with James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, as do the Lakers, with Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom.

Others? No so much.

It was then pointed out to James that the league had far fewer teams back then.

"That's why it was great," he said. "That's what I'm saying."

Asked if he was suggesting contraction, as has been offered as a possibility from Commissioner David Stern amid the league's contentious negotiations for a new collective-bargaining agreement, James said, "That's not my job as a player, but that's why the league was so great."

He then essentially headed down that path in front of the a.ssembled pregame media.

"Just imagine if you could take Kevin Love off Minnesota and add him to another team," he said. "Or, looking at some of the teams that's not that great, you take Brook Lopez or you take Devin Harris off these teams that's not that good right now and add 'em to a team that could be really good.

"I'm not saying, 'Let's take New Jersey, let's take Minnesota out of the league.' But, hey you guys are not stupid. I'm not stupid. I know what would be great for the league."

He has a valid point, but Lebron being the attention wh0ore that he is, he can't just say it without being an attention wh0ore he's gotta take shots at certain franchise.

The talent pool is way too thin, there's easily 5-8 teams every year that have absolutely no shot at even makin the playoffs nevermind contending for a title.

There goes the argument for the idiots that made that thread not so long ago... claiming that the NBA was more loaded now. Where I said it was watered down.

With that said, LBJ needs to stfu and keep his ideas about any and everything to himself.

I think it was more him praising the players then bashing the teams.

He wants Love, Lopez, or Harris to see that quote, and come on down and join the nWo.

Boss.

You do some realize people have been saying the league needs to contract since the 80's?

s**t, just in the late 80's, you had the Magic, Heat, Hornets & Wolves coming into the league. Then in 95 it was the Raptors and the Grizzlies.
