    In what sense? Are you advocating for no max? Because then we'd see the big stars making even larger % of the cap and small markets having to overpay even more for guys

    Tho it likely is thrown around way too much. In the context of players that end up with max contracts, Siakam is totally deserving given his age and expected development. But we wouldn't be in this world if the NBA hadn't gone full retard (read : The Lakers, who fucked the entire free agency market with their Mosgov and Luol Deng contracts) back when the salary cap spiked up in 16
    The spike was an NBAPA fuck up but I don't think those dumb Lakers moves had any lasting effect. Smart GMs saw that and lol'd and it isn't causing them to overpay for crappy guys now

    The max means you get to underpay the best players in the game relative to their value, making superteams possible.

    Right. So in your ideal NBA would it essentially be one star maximum per team? Not arguing if that might be a better product - but I think it has mostly worked itself out ok to this point with the current system

    Been saying. Supermax should mean something. Like 45% cap over 6 seasons. Teams should invest in star players the same way NFL teams treat franchise quarterbacks. You want two franchise players? GL spreading 10% of your remaining payroll over 13 bodies.

    We already saw most of the NBA gravitate towards a big 2 (Kawhi/PG13, LeBron/AD, Kyrie/KD, Harden/Westbrook, etc) this off-season as opposed to the Big 3 style we'd been seeing since the Heatles.

    I think the Warriors are the only team sitting on 3 max contracts going into this season, and past Steph/Klay/D'Lo/Draymond their roster is complete ASS.

    hopefully it's nothing more than what it is. blake's issue in his rookie year were this thing that never got better so they were forced to do surgery, iirc.
