I'm not sure how all that stuff works, but I think all that goes to an independent arbitrator so it might not take as long as you think.

damnit, just realized I'm turning this into CEsspool frown.gif

Back to basketball, if Pacers lose next game, who gets traded, Hibbert? Stephenson? Hill? West? They are ateam built to beat Miami, but in order to beat Miami you have to play against Miami and with the Hawks (who will be better next year), rising Bullets team, a Derrick Rose (or Carmelo) led Chicago, they may never make it to Miami in a playoffs so do you reset your team?

Hibbert gotz to go.... he either straight up quit on the team or is a total headcase.

I've never seen anyone that young fall off like that.

So, are we to assume Vogel gets shitcanned? I wouldn't be surprised if they got rid of Hibbert, Scola, or Hill tbh. They probably would get rid of Turner too if they hadn't just acquired him

Of course, I knew that. The Guggenheim Group bought the Dodgers, not Magic.

And that Russki bought the Nets, not Jay-Z.

I'm fine with increased black ownership in sports. But it would be nice if they contributed the equity and had a more vested interest.

And it remains to be seen if black owners will be better for black players. Sure players will have that feel good period when their team becomes black owned. But will it really be better for them.

MJ has not been a great owner for his players economic interests. Look at his hard ball actions during the lock out. When the rubber meets the road, players will want to play for an owner that is best for their interests, black or white.

paul george got robbed and had his all star ring stolen. damn dude just can't catch a break

I saw that. Same thing happened to Chris Bosh not too long ago. I guess if you're a pro athlete, everyone knows you've got money and exactly when you'll be out of town

last night on the chatter, kenny and chuck were unanimous in the opinion that when a team loses by 7-10 points, you can point at the coach. When it loses by more, it's the players. not sure what this means about vogel's future ... one of the roles of a coach is to keep his team focused ... but when a team in any sport goes off the board like that, there's got to be a MAJOR back story.

As far as Sterling, I think there's a lot greater chance of him being forced to sell than most others seem to. the nba ownership is a cartel, and there are provisions in that cartel for getting rid of someone who is deemed to be detrimental to their interests. granted, it's difficult, i think it takes like 3/4 of the owners vote? but this would be a perfect case for it -- a) everybody hates Sterling anyway; and b) it gives them a chance to stand up and act heroic.
and the clips have already turned this into a brand!

To be fair, at least the team can be dismantled knowing they achieved their goal of getting the No. 1 seed rimshot.gif

Man, I'm giddy thinking about the shifts of power that would happen if Doc, Paul and Griffin somehow manage to force their way off the team. Even Jordan, Redick and Crawford to some extent as well

Interesting statement. I didn't hear it live, but I mostly agree. Hibbert has been a disaster. He was a disaster all last season save for some late season quality and a good playoff run. His mental strength has to come into question. On the other hand, Vogel should have parked Hibbert after game 1. Everyone saw that the game plan wasn't going to work and it hasn't. Scott Brooks has the same problem of sticking with a situation too long.

For my money, ship Hibbert and George Hill.
