    I watched a game where whoever he switched on got the ball on offense, and they were just driving around him like a turnstile. He has a good jumper still. He was having trouble with lateral moves on defense.

    Financially it's worked out well for Gordon Hayward but I didn't like the way he left the Jazz.

    Of course now, the days of loyalty are over.

    All about the media $$ and gettin yours.
    If it wasn't for the competition it would be unrelatable. I liked the era of 10 buck nosebleeds and packed arenas. Maybe they should bring it back! ;):suns:

    The owners are screwing themselves and they don’t even know it. Didn’t they just go to players and ask them to defer money and about how they are losing money like crazy cause of all this.

    lol if I’m a player screw you pay me. Oh no fans next year? Don’t care pay me. I’m not taking no cuts

    As long as the money keeps flowing the NBA owners don't have reason to change their ways unless the coronavirus has an impact yet unseen.

    Owners were supposed to be more restrained in their spending this free agency.

    I haven't seen it.

    I have a feeling Crowder is one of those guys who you hate until they're on your team. The Raja Bell comparison further back was an apt one.

    Didn't he and Booker have a mild beef after the 70 pt game?

    the problem is the Money isn’t actually flowing like it did. Today’s free spending ways is the result of a NBA that does not exist anymore. Sure there is plenty of cash still, but those revenue streams have already reached max potential. The league has some issues that haven’t been solved yet. Today’s NBA is stuck in a non growth pattern for a couple of years now. Thus the whole Chinese debacle.

    Yea, Crowder wrote on the Instagram picture where Book was holding up the “70” surrounded by teammates: “Never seen so many smiles after an L”, and Book responded “You can’t guard me”.

    The NBA and the NBPA put a provision in the new CBA agreement where there is a mutual opt-out agreement after the 2022-23 season. If league revenue does not improve this may be what happens. The NBA sort of bank rolled this free agency with concessions by the players to put a percentage of their salary into escrow.

    I made a comparison to Christmas shopping somewhere and this may be sort of what it is, going into debt for gifts they may not be able to pay off later.
