Thank goodness for salary caps

    Man, that's great that the salary cap in place in the NBA pretty much ensures that LeBron will stay in Cleveland and the league will have competitive balance for years to come. You might think only the Lakers, Celtics, or Michael Jordan could win otherwise.

    On the other hand, without it, how much money gets spent this week? Over a billion?

    What is your criticism? The salary cap in the NBA is 58 million. The Miami heat gutted their roster to clear space under the cap. If LeBron leaves Cleveland, he will be leaving $30 million guaranteed on the table. Do you want to make it impossible for a player to leave his current team?

    If LeBron goes to Miami, it's going to be Wade, Bosh, the Queen, Mario Chalmers and eight guys making the league minimum. I don't know if you can win a title without a bench, unless your big three plan on scoring 35 points each.

    Also, Cleveland had the 5th highest payroll in the league last year.

    The salary cap lie us that they allow teams to keep their own players because they keep salaries from spiraling out of control, thus ensuring competitive balance.

    The salary cap truth is that all they do is prevent billionaire owners from becoming millionaire owners.

    And to think, if you could have taken out the sarcasm, TSP's headline on this thread might have been the first intelligent thing he ever wrote on the subject of salary caps. Then he went back to being TSP.

    Go back to slurping your favorite rapist/QB.

    Typical TSP. Tasteless, pathetic personal attacks to cover up the complete lack of information and perspective.

    Seriously, TSP. Does being wrong all the time ever get old for you, or are you just used to it?
