17 ppg will do that for you (Oladipo).

Adams and Gobert are overpaid but if you don't overpay someone else will so you have no choice.

I think Adams and Gobert will be paid appropriately for what they provide.  They're both potential DPOY, young guys that would make just as much or even more should they hit the open market.

I think most players are overpaid but the owners don't have a choice if they want to be competitive. There are a lot of good players in the NBA right now.

To say the players are over paid is inacurrate except in opinion only. All entertainment employees are paid what the market dictates. Simple supply and demand. You think athletes, movie stars, rock stars, or prostitues are getting paid too much you just don't support their product. Evidently pro sports teams are doing ok even with soaring salaries because the owners keep ponying up the cash. If people want to pay $10 to see a movie, $100 dollars to see a concert, $1000 dollars to see a stoopid game it is their choice and evidently there are lots of folks out there willing to do just that. In my opinion plummers, mechanics, and doctors are over paid but when you want one you either do it yourself or pay up. We all should boycott all sports for one year and see what happens then to salaries, ticket prices, and a hot dog and beer at the game. Until then, take it with a chuckle and a grain of salt.

It's subjective.

Guess that's why Curry shoots 3's so well. He's part white.

Hey now, don't forget about the power swing. The teams in the East fared better than the West last year.

The East had one team over .500 not make the playoffs last year.

The West had at least one team under .500 make the playoffs.

But.....the East got to play each other more times. When two chitty teams play, one still has to win.

Barring injury, how many teams could come out of the West? How many out of the East? (That wouldn't get embarrassed in the finals by the West winner)
