This whole small market bullsh*t needs to stop, they need to do their homework and lock up their players before they are snatched up. You build a great team you will have the fan base to support the payroll. You only need to look at a few teams to see that management could care less about building a winner however, they are content making money and just being in the league.
n*gga do you remember the '03 Finals?
Basketball has too much money running through it nowadays for n*ggas to be watching a Memphis-Milwaukee final.
The game been rigged since LeBron beat Detroit and all the stars are in on the fix. That's why Melo and Dwight left their teams the way they did.
You'll never see a player like J.R. Smith signing the vet minimum for a team like Minnesota, no matter how skilled they are. If they don't have a player doing Sprint or Nike commercials, them n*ggas ain't making it past the second round. Bet.
