Cruel Irony?

Am I the only one that finds it very ironic that the new luxury tax which was supposed to heavily penalize and keep big market teams from getting a bunch of star players and keep small market team competitive, is backfiring as that is the main reason why small market OKC is on the brink of breaking up it's core of great young players due to not being able to afford a hard luxury tax?

its too early to tell how the

its too early to tell how the new slaray structure will affect teams around the league. But reality is this, the lakers and a few other teams were gonna go over the salary cap regardless. Some teams are not really prepared/able to go over the cap. Its quite possible though that the nba teams like the thunder just flat out wont be able to afford the increased penalties and then yeah, you might be right. This new contract will only make it tougher for mid markets.

The next few years will tell

The next few years will tell the tale. Lakers are spending now when the tax is not that punitive. When it starts increasing and teams have to pay for repeat offenses then we will hopefully see the big market teams come back to the field as regards to spending.
