CBA dont ruin the NBA

The NBA is looking so good right now and for the next 7-10 years

The Celtics and Lakers are at the top again.

The Knicks and Heat are reviving their once brutal rivalry and its only going to get better

The Chicago Bulls are relevant again

The Oklahoma City Thunder are giving small market teams hope

And we have a great deal of young talent putting up veteran type numbers.

The only thing I wanna see more of is more aggressive defense like the 90's and less soft foul calls.

With the CBA expiring I hope they reach and agreement and keep up the momentum cause the NBA is looking so good right now

If they stop &$#%#&@! fouls

If they stop &$#%#[email protected]! fouls we'll have a golden age of Bball again with all the stars we currently have and how they are combing for super teams.

Don't forget that the Clips

Don't forget that the Clips might be decent in a couple years too.

The Spurs are back too bad the same can't be said for the Pistons.

The Technical fouls are awful I agree but the league has resended some but some players need to adjust as well.and the refs are terrible too enough with the touch fouls.

I don't like the way that

I don't like the way that David Stern almost always sides with the owners. The NBA are the league's governing body and thus should be the broker between the players and the owners.

The league needs to realise that some teams will make more money than others, those getting 12,000 and having losing seasons don't or will not make as much profit as those averaging 20,000 and having deep play off runs.

We need to impeach David Stern

He is like a dictator!!! making up rules as he goes along. He is more about image of the league than the actual entertainment factor.
Down with King Stern, Down with King Stern

nateoak If they stop all the

If they stop all the p.ussy fouls as you said, your favorite NBA player wouldn't shoot a single free throw. Monta Ellis. He's so weak, a single push looks like they tackled him. Lmao

Only thing they really need to change

Please, for the love of God, do away with 100% guaranteed contracts!! Adopt a version of the NFL's salary cap, maybe tweak the reffing, and your good to go.

Lots of contracts are only

Lots of contracts are only guaranteed for so many years or have team options,player options. Look at Mo Williams final two years were player options, Billups, Carter, Jason Terry etc having various buyouts for next season and Rashard Lewis's last year only being guaranteed for about $10 million but it increasing on how many games he plays.

Is there details in the current CBA where it says when team/player options can be put in. Maybe the best thing is no contract can be longer than 3 years including the rookie deal so that teams and players know what the flexability is.

I'd guess this might be David Stern's last CBA as he is 70 years old next year and he cannot go on for ever as Commissioner and whilst he may feel he is able to take a harder line as he may not be in his current role when the next CBA comes around. I would guess that he would be very wary of having a lockout as that could be what he may be remembered for and could undermine his poiston if he was seen to have forced the lockout to happen.

@ Boomshakalaka Stern sides

@ Boomshakalaka Stern sides with the owners cause they are the ones who pay his salary.

Other than that the NBA is really turning into a revenue generating locomotive. If they can reach the CBA without any problems and by some miracle of god refs stopped calling ticky-tac fouls all game the NBA would definitely reach a new all time high with the new innovation of super teams.

And P.S if the Heat-Knicks rivarly gets anything close to what it used to be and Amare chokes out Bosh or something I will literally lose all control.
