I have a riddle for you.
Why would Mark Cuban not want Chris Paul to go to the Lakers and Pau Gasol to go to the Rockets.
Tough one isn't it.
The whole CP3 situation pisses me off, and I am **** sick of small market teams bitching and moaning about what the GOOD teams do. I have a suggestion to all you whiners out there who run NBA teams. Suck it up and BUILD your **** team.
Maybe the the reason your team sucks Whale dick (Dan Gilbert) is because you're too busy bitching about what the Lakers or Heat are doing instead of, I don't know, looking at ways to improve your god awful team.
It's not like it's ****
impossible to do. OKC is a championship contender, Portland is always
competitive, the Spurs were a dynasty, the Bucks are a play-off team,
Phoenix is still a very good team, and the Jazz were a fixture in the
play-offs for over 2 decades.
It's not like there's no way to build your team. There's a draft and there's free agency. Find quality players. Don't be mad at the Lakers because they have their eyes on the prize. They may have more money, but that doesn't mean **** if you don't know how to use it. Smart people make the most out of what they have, and if you can't then maybe you shouldn't have let your parents use you as a softball as a baby (Dan Gilbert).
You can't control were players want to play. If they leave your team, then you have only yourself to blame. If LeBron had won 2-3 titles in Cleveland, do you think he would've left? I don't think so, but because the Cavs were run by Morons, he left to go to a team that knew what they were doing. Really, you didn't want to give up JJ Hickson to get Amare Stoudemire? That was a really smart move wasn't it?
The point is, if your favorite team is a pathetic joke of a franchise. Don't blame the Big markets, don't blame the system, and don't blame the super stars. Blame the idiots who make all the stupid decisions that confine your favorite team to mediocrity.
