    Has Adam Silver given NBA players too much power?

      Adam if you're really bent on changing NBA schedule;

      Half preseason games
      Playoffs format

      First round 1 game wins all.
      2nd round best out of 3.
      3rd round best out of 5.
      Championship best out of 7 obvsly due to the randomness if the first round and like the clippers could've won they would've had to beat a better team in championship round 4 times if they exactly made it. That's my idea otherwise leave it alone, it exposes the real Hooper's.

      Collin why didn't you mention Blake and the Clips when talking about PG and his contract? Contract stuff is happening both ways bro.

      No one complains about the owners having control over the players movement for the 1st 5 years. And can then trade them without the players consent

      Jimmy Early I think 💭 that is how u look at from your age group or prospective, i root for a team and for players. I think players don’t have too much power because a team can trade you at any time, but you can’t ask for a trade, please take a look at demar, it,Blake etc they were traded away after been so loyal , they were repaid badly ( so if a team can do it why can’t players) expect u are a double standard person

      Since Austin Rivers plays for the Rockets, and Doc Rivers is the Head Coach of the Clippers, if they went to dinner after the Rockets play the Clippers (or visa versa), or went on vacation together during a lay off like the All-Star break... would that be tampering? You know they’ve talked about Austin playing for Doc again down the line.

                I think the NBA should adopt the european football model. Yes to the salary cap but no max contract ceiling, 5 years max eligibility extended to every player, trade destinations must be agreed by both teams and players and more importantly the trade and free-agency deadline window shortened to limit in-season transactions

                  Well you all did or did not know about the DUO conversations... because if you did, then you knew about Paul leaving when he knew that Westbrick was going too.. Too much drama in OKC. Kd's move must have been supported for ALL the DUO talks.. In addition, The commissioner and the owners HAD to quell all the super-team talks.. and the players agreed to give folks a fair enough chance to win the TITLE. This is nicely orchestrated and agreed on..

                    You dont get to pick where you start your career and if you're a star you're forced to spend 7 years with the team you didnt pick. Oh but they can trade you whenever they want. American sports breeds wanting out of contracts you're essentially forced into.

                        Steph Curry/Klay is not the same as KD/Steph. That comparison dismisses how toxic things are for them as a pair as it relates to the media. They wanted them to break up. The media said KD(2 FMVP) just has to accept he is the #2 option for GSW. Klay is more willing to accept his role b/c he clearly isn’t their best player. KD wasn’t willing to settle as their most talented and efficient player. Soooo it was never going to last.

                                    Excellent analysis. The best so far. Steve, Dray, Steph and Klay's personalities are perfect for a team's culture. And D'Angelo and Willie, just listening to them, are not far off from great personalities. That is what I will base a judgment on. Those who ignore these GSW players do so at your own risk. Culture and common goal will win out when the season gets tougher. Remember, it was the heart and common culture that got them to the finals of a very tough western conference in the first place. Most teams would have folded with what they had to go through all last season.

                                      I honestly believe New Orleans getting Zion was rigged by Adam Silver cuz if Zion never went there, I don’t think New Orleans trades AD. I’m all for player movement too, but breaking contracts is getting ridiculous.

                                        i don't think legalizing gambling is the same level of allowing more player movement via pro-player regulations.
                                        Gambling is actually something that is problematic. I don't know many people that are leading great lives because of their addictions to gambling. (i.e. Lottery and scratchers)

                                            Colin, tell owners to stop "trading" players, then players will stop asking/demanding trades. What's with the double standard ? Do owners not break contracts ?

                                                  Players today, ESPECIALLY in the NBA, don't know what integrity is. That's today's culture. I'm of the same age, but I was raised better.

                                                  Duke Johnson, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie, etc. The players are poisoned. If they didn't have the leverage they had, they'd be out of luck. They don't live in reality.

                                                              I think tampering rules should be rid of. Also players shouldn’t be able to force or demand a trade until their last year of their deals that way teams are less interested in trading because they’ll be rentals. They do have a chance to move it’s called free agency, so I don’t get why they also get to demand trades two years into a 5 year deal

What a stupid idea, the women don’t flop because they don’t know how to draw a foul!!! Women’s soccer is slow with no tactics, put the USMNT up against the USWNT and see Who is better. The USWNT play inferior opponent, the USMNT play equal to superior opponents, all of whom are far superior than any women’s soccer team. Truth.

He's too sensitive, he's too emotional, he cares too much about what people think, he's too indecisive, he's just all over the place. Why you would leave a team that's won 3 titles in the last 5 years to go play with one guy that couldn't even play with Lebron is beyond me.

They signed Paul George to a 4-year deal and he turned around and demanded a trade. The players dont want to play there. The Blazers now have ZERO chance in the west. Sorry man the landscape has changed due to player mobility.
