    Davis and his agent have flat out told everyone he 100% intends to go to LA with Lebron when his contract is up.

    The NBA is a joke.

    What I don't like about AD and it's the Lebron effect , isn't the fact he isn't going to resign ( and he isn't saying so now in order to help the franchise ) he is doing it now cause he wants to go to LA a year and 1/2 before his contract isn't finished .

    What I mean about the Lebron effect is it's like your convincing a woman to leave a guy who is in a relationship . For his own purposes he wants to destroy another situation . IF he wanted to play with AD he could have went to the Pelicans last summer .
    Yeah, but that's not where SPACE JAM 2 is gonna be shot. So no.

    I can already envision Anthony Davis' monstar version with the cartoonish unibrow

    there's a third option where the player tells the organization quietly without strong-arming them into making a move and severely hurting their leverage.

    i prefer that
    Porzingis agrees.

    Chris Bosh played good solider and played out his contract and said he gave the Raptors an opportunity to re-sign but the result is the franchise didn't get anything for the asset . AD with 1 and 1/2 years left in his contract wants out ... What is the preferred action do you want from your franchise player .
    Wonder if Kawhi is considering this right now. Ask for trade, whisper he ain't coming back, or lie.

    Whole new dynamic.

    I hope he tells Masai, if right now Klaw says he ain't coming back MU knows that his value in a playoff push is higher than what we can get for a playoff rental. With the added bonus we might do something great. It might change his mind.

    The extremes are walking away from a contract for no reason, to being fucked over by an organization and not fighting back. Reasonable people try to work things out. As a business owner you should try not to bring things on yourself and hopefully your employees treat you the same. But 2 things are sure. One is that an employer does not want a disgruntled employee around any longer than necessary. Secondly, a guy working in a regular business can not be compared to an NBA star in terms of contract protection. A non star yes, they are extremely vulnerable. But a star has his unique ability, his contract, and a union dominated by above average veterans to negotiate those collective bargaining agreements.
    On another point Bosh honoured his contract and should be commended for that. He just was really immature toying with an extremely loyal fan base at the end. For that he deserved to be admonished.
    But this franchise has had its share of dysfunction, without evening mentioning the obvious elephant in the room, haha...

    Kawhi already declared he will give everyone a fair shake. Which means he should meet Masai + probably Magic/'Bron + Lawrence Frank.

    Why is Davis not allowed to go to the Lakers? Players should be allowed to go to wherever they want when their contract expires. If the league really wanted to set up parameters to prevent this - they easily could.

    I know Chris Bosh is being discussed on another thread but in a recent podcast he did say he wasn't never thinking about re-signing ... He felt like this while never making MLSE know that this is his mind set ..

    Bill Simmons did say that this new NBA ( with player empowerment ) it may look now but there is a lot of crap that comes with it ..

    These are apples to oranges. NBA players sign contracts where essentially the player agrees to play for x dollars plus a few other conditions - which INCLUDE details on the team's right to trade/waive the player based on the contract and the CBA. This is all negotiated and agreed upon by the union and league (CBA) or by the player's agent and the team (contract).

    What is NOT included in contracts is anything about players strong arming their way out with trade demands or by not trying, or teams effing around in the media about guys on other rosters. All this nonsense might generate tweets but it's bad for the league imho.

    Now if you want to make the argument that the contracts should be different and the players should have more contractual leverage to determine their own fate - go ahead and do that. But don't pretend teams trading guys = players demanding trades, because it's not the same in the current state of things.

    Also, small market teams - which the league needs - will never buy into players having more leverage to leave town and go to New York/Miami/LA/Lebron. Who the hell wants to run a team in Charlotte, Cleveland, or Milwuakee in a league like that?

    He’s saying if there’s videos on YouTube about lizard people and conspiracies that are obviously false and calling them true. YouTube is not a reliable source.
