                I’m all for player empowerment, personal agency, and individual liberty... but I also see how the current free agency environment can hurt the league in terms of parity and brand integrity. I don’t know what the solution is :/

                  i didn't like but now i love following the players. Shorter contract is good for the sport and fans.

                    Player empowerment? Wtf, when did the NBA become civil activism for pampered millionaires? These filthy rich ball players gave up those benefits when they signed the contracts. Do you feel bad that justin bieber has to go on a world tour so he cant see his family on their birthdays? Or is lebron James just more righteous? They're entertainers and they are compensated justly so they should sacrifice the same.

                    Adam silver turned basketball into Keeping up with the Kardashians. Complete with inflated fake-stat non winning stars.

                      Actually think the NBA will get worse because of Adam silver. He is not a good commish. Too many players dictating the NBA. Look you had a dude win a championship and still leaves....dude that’s a problem. Mr silver I’m out...NFL is the best league ever. Prefer to watch my superstars play for one team. That’s why I love my packers and Aaron Rodgers knowing he plays for my packers forever. Mr silver I dont like the nba and dislike so much player movement. Lebron is the commish and mr silver you are his babe. Deal with it baby. Let’s go nfl 2 more weeks...I have stopped watching nba worse run league ever.

                                          The NBA is about the owners. They create their next crop of NBA stars for the next generation. NBA players will always be employees and replaceable. If it really about the players then they will be no NBA when MJ retired LoL.

                                            We have seen too many instances where teams turn around and deal players. (Their rights). It has made us understand the reality of the nba and not be overly sentimental about a team and in turn root for individuals more. Honestly it’s the fault of the franchises. And most importantly it’s the players that saw this and that’s why the fans perspective has changed.

                                                  Adam can be an idiot sometimes, like this whole Governor bullshit because one player complained about not liking the word "owner". And let's not forget the rule tlchange for helping players who couldn't shoot freethrows. Oh and putting the NBA into the whole Tranny discussion and taking money away from a city because they didn't want men pissing next to little girls or women watching little boys in the bathrooms.

                                                          I loved Silver's response regarding
                                                          Paul. The Path to success was unique, Similar to Jobs or Gates. NFL, America's favorite has such a long way to go to get owners to treat players more equitably with its 52 players.

                                                                            NFL rules still say an agent needs a degree and so does the NHL.

                                                                            Both of those leagues would make exceptions when necessary. The NCAA obviously would've made exceptions when neccessary. There's a reason Rich Paul is the only example used to make the argument that this requirement was bad.

                                                                            Plenty of jobs out there that require a degree on paper but have been given to ppl with no degree because they proved their ability to do the job.

                                                                            This isn't a situation where Rich Paul tried to rep a student and got turned away by the NCAA. This is a situation where LeBron jumped on Twitter to make something about him and his friends brand for publicity and it's obvious.
