You kidding yourself, so basically we should get rid of free agency and allow owners to decide who should get what.
Celtics got Kevin Mchale and Robert Parish for a used stick of gum and we are not gonna talk about the trades that brought the Big 2 in.....celtic pride
and also how red drafted bird while he was still in college and the nba had to change the rule because of that
The Bird Collegiate Rule.
The NBA draft eligibility rules were changed to prevent teams from drafting players before they were ready to sign.
When the Boston Celtics selected the 6'9", 220-pound Bird 6th overall in the 1978 NBA Draft, even though they were uncertain whether he would enter the NBA or remain at Indiana State to play his senior season. Bird ultimately decided to play his final college season, but the Celtics retained their exclusive right to sign him until the 1979 NBA Draft, because of the NBA's "junior eligible" rule that existed at that time (allowing a collegiate player to be drafted when the player's original "entering" class was graduating and giving them one calendar year to sign them, even if they went back to college). Shortly before that deadline, Bird agreed to sign with the Celtics for a US $650,000 a year contract, making him at the time the highest-paid rookie in the history of the NBA.
