    The NBA is all about money. If no one watches them they will cease to exist. Who said uneducated celebrities like Mr. James would be the person to talk to for advise an anything. I think he went right into the NBA from High school. I don't know if he has done some college since. We hear a lot from people who may be talented actors or athletes, but tend to be short in the brain power.

    Hey Moto X, Have you seen the bulls last ten years? They stunk after Jordan left! How about the Warriors who went from not a chance to a great team! The Knicks just beat quite a few elite teams and have a high record in the east! Who would've thought!

    No question there are some bad teams but with poor management. No ones fault. Look how many 1st round picks the Clips have had and wasted. What happens to the Heat when the Heat doesn't meet expectations? The Jazz have to be more frugal than the truly "rich"teams. That is OK. Would sooner support the Jazz than the Heat. It is more about the journey than the trophy. Go Jazz!

    This is at least the second angry rant from Robinson about Lebron. As I read the article and all I hear is HATE, HATE, HATE. Why so angry Robinson? You don't have to like Lebron, but you don't need to insult his intelligence along with Karl Malone and others. Maybe you wouldn't be so "smart" if you grew up in the same circumstances these men have.

    Go Jazz

    re: Tyler Ray

    "Lebron doesn't understand what pro sports is all about. It's all about the teams who don't stand a chance, who build and work so hard to become competitive and the fans who support their team through thick and thin."

    Uh, pro sports is about money. Its not about the teams that don't stand a chance...its about the teams that make money "sharing" with those that don't.

    Most teams that don't stand a chance never to the clippers.

    The same few teams win every year in the NBA. LA, Boston...rinse repeat.

    Lebron doesn't understand what pro sports is all about. It's all about the teams who don't stand a chance, who build and work so hard to become competitive and the fans who support their team through thick and thin. But Lebron wouldn't know anything about that. Real superstars make the players they have around them better. Like Jordan did with Kerr and Pippen and his entire team. I'm so sick of the team swapping and disloyalty players have now days! Stick with the team that wants to stick with you!

    LeBron is not my favorite by any means, but the NBA does need contraction. There a few franchises that just need to go away.

    Unfortunately, before the NBA shrinks it will grow. Everyone know Stern wants to "go global". A team in London, a team in Moscow, a team in Shanghai, a team in Mexico City. Not soon, but some day.

    His comment about the league being watered down and him leaving Cleveland are not ironic. His point is that if there were less teams in the league, he wouldn't have to be the only good player in Cleveland, and he could have stuck around. Certainly Lebron has his fair share of stupid comments, but this one I don't necessarily disagree with. Closing down six teams gets rid of the worst 72 players in the league.

    Can logic be faulty? This whole article confirms why we love the Jazz, because they care about each other and have a coach who wouldn't put up with this kind of "logic?"

    "BronBron." Now that's just plain funny.

    It comes down to the NBA being unwatchable, uninteresting, unentertaining, too expensive for the working class and just plain bad competition.

    They are lazy athletes who are mostly self-serving, too tattoed, too whiny, un-coachable, undisciplined, uneducated, who slur their words making it impossible to understand the interview, "yea ya know," is the beginning of every sentence and "well, we'll see, ok sank you," at the end with pick your cliche in between.

    Thanks Doug, another great article.
