I think all of these things will likely be good for the league. Doesn't have a ton of impact on us this season, but we have plenty of Big 12 rivals who have several NBA players on their rosters who will have to stay in school most likely.
I signed a contract when I got hired at my job but I could be fired at any moment as Iowa is a right to work state. I guess contract may not be the best term but the NBA is probably the worst league when it comes to guys having a big postseason, getting a contract, and loafing.
They need to work out some type of compromise on the contract thing. Maybe for every contract there's a team option for the last year of it. They need to make some type of tweak because the horrible contracts have ruined certain teams being held hostage by guys like Eddy Curry making big money, yet sucking/not being able to play.
The 30 percent salary reduction is BS. Maybe 10 percent at most is necessary. The superstars are paid fairly (IMO) but too many guys like Drew Gooden making 32 mil for 5 years is out of hand. Gooden is basically a 8th man on a good roster. He should be making about 3 or 3.5 mil a year.
