Owners vs. players

By tkawai - May 30 2020

I totally agree that the public/fans usually side with owners (teams)which I can’t stand. What’s your take on player’s salary and the whole salary cap? For example all the criticism Dak (Cowboys QB) is getting about his next projected contract or when Kobe got his huge extension and how the critics said it hurt the team to sign other players. I’d appreciate to hear what your thoughts are. Thanks! Tamao

I have a question for a school project

By Shady Saleh - May 28 2020
Read more
Hey Anthony, I needed an NBA source for a school project and I was wondering if you could answer my question in the mailbag or in an interview. The question is what are the immediate and long term ramifications of the suspended NBA season? It’s a broad question but it could be in regards to players getting injured due to rushing back without enough games to get acclimated. Or setting up a template for the way future pandemics or other disasters are handled by the NBA etc.
