    But that's going to be a problem with signing anyone much less a rookie. A team like the Heat has money tied up with the Big 3 and they aren't going to get into a bidding war with other teams. If you're good enough, you'll get endorsements wherever you are. Heck even Nate Robinson has a Taco Bell commercial. Endorsements weren't a problem with LeBron when he was in CLE.

    The NBA players' union are comprised of idiots. Billy Hunter could have cared less about the future of the league while he was in charge. He made the top players uber-rich instead of working on offering more balanced payoffs to more people.

    I think it would work. A hard cap would be the key. It would level the financial playing field and reward smart teams. It would promote parity because the great players would get paid more and be more spread throughout the league. There is no way Miami could exist in that kind of environment. LeBron could make 40 million a year or more. If that were the case, no Bosh, no Wade.

    So, Phil Jackson may be taking a front office job with the Knicks.

    I hear Dolan is trying to decide between Jackson or bringing back Isiah Thomas.

    Sounds like a Dolan move for Thomas.

    I'm hoping for Jackson so he is nowhere near LA - LA - Land when Dantoni gets fired.

    It's hard to play 5 on 8.

    Now, this could very well work. Granted -- and I know that I'm in the minority -- I don't really have a beef with the state of the game right now. If they (Your ideas) were to be implemented, I'd like to see -- once, again, I'm positive that I'm in the minority -- the league return to allowing players go directly to the NBA instead of the ridiculous one-and-done nonsense. Who knows, it may even bring rookie wages down in some cases as teams may be hesitant to throw significant $$$$ at players unproven beyond the high school level.

    It doesn't matter who is in the front office in NYC as long as Dolan is owner, that team isn't going anywhere.
