Ok first Childress goes....no big deal
Carlos Arroyo....still no big deal
Earl Boykins...who could actually tell you off the top of their head what type of stats he put up last year
But now Kobe and Lebron are considering leaving the nest and David Stern has to be a bit scared. I personally think Lebron is bluffing he still has much too prove in the NBA. But Kobe has done it all, Championships,MVP,Scoring Champ,All Star, All NBA first teamer, etc. So why would he turn down 40 million?
The NBA has a major problem and to me the only solution is to get rid of the salary cap. Currently the most a player can earn is 20+ million per season, Europe can double that. I read a report about The NBA expanding to Europe as an answer, but with there being a NBA cap that really just makes playing for a Euro Leauge team more intriguing, why would a player play for a NBA European team making an NBA salary when they can play for the Euro League for more? To me the only answer is to kill the cap and to allow us to offer top dollar to keep our players.
This is where Dolan becomes an asset to us. What does Dolan do best....spend money! If there was no cap Dolan would just buyout players like Jefferies and James and simply purchase players to fill in there spot. Without a cap the Knicks will become a contender instantly thanks to the power of the dollar! We will essentially become the NBA's version of the Yanks. I predict we drop 100 million on our starting five alone!
Anyways sound off
This scenerio would offer millions of possibilities and honestly is not all that unrealistic.
