This is a horrible idea.. It’s totally set up to help major markets that
can work in Free Agency..
And tanking is not a bad thing.
The #NBA may institute a new rule that will revolutionize the future of
professional basketball. What is it? Check out the clip!
this is retarted.. why not just do it the way the NFL and MLB do it.. the
NBA and NHL has the dumbest draft order ever… why not just have the way
nfl and mlb do it
the draft is both terrible and awesome lol
Can those bad picks on the proposed system be traded for a future good
pick, depending on how deep the draft year is?
This system would be fair if the quality of the drafted players would be
the same each year, but it’s not. Plus the system now, makes it so the
worst teams always get good picks, that equalises the league. In this
system a strong team could get the number one pick which would be unfair.
Also if they implement the system now, one team will have to wait 30 years
for their next number 1 pick. So at first glance this might seem fair but I
think it will create a TON of problems. Tanking isn’t great but it’s a
small problem in my opinion. This system could wreck the league.
Don’t punish tanking. Fix the issues that cause it. Take away max
contracts, put in an actual hard cap, and get rid of the lottery (which
just cause teams like Charlotte to keep tanking until they get lotto
lucky). Then Lebron is being offered $30 million a year by the shit teams
with cap space while the Heat can’t afford him AND Wade/Bosh so they have
to choose, which gets rid of super teams and gives smaller markets a chance
I don’t like the ‘wheel’ concept but I do think that the teams that get a
top 3 picks in a given year should not be able to get one of the top 3
picks the next year. There does need to be some kind of regulation to
encourage teams from saying there are perpetually rebuilding. Also while I
do not have much faith in the NBA GM ability to make the best choices all
the time, as a fan I certainly would not to hand all the power to the kids
coming out of collage.
This idea is pretty dumb, keep it like it is. Don’t let good teams or major
city teams get an unfair advantage. I can definitely see college kids
skipping seasons until the heat come around or something. Also, the first
time this comes around, the championship calibur teams would get an
excellent pick the next years, meaning youb would ensure about a decade of
the same teams being top tier, does the heat need that? It would be a top
down system that would totally kill mid market teams.
I’ve never known a person to say ‘Out of anything’ so much in my life Rick,
is there a video you don’t say it in? ;)
So the Knicks are tanking
I like the idea of it, but this exact format wouldn’t work in my opinion.
If they can make a few changes and figure it all out, I’m all for it
No Rick this would not work. I see a team in future who would suck straight
for 2 or 3 years and get bad draft picks. Just think if Miami who have
LeBron James. They are winning championships and they have the first draft
pick in one or two year. They would be super stacked with a good pick while
other teams are bad. I don’t know tanking is an issue. It just became
popular this year where GM are losing to get a high pick. Charlotte has
been doing that where is get them.
The NBA should just eliminate the draft and have a free agency process
where teams bid on young players from college and the players choose which
team they want to go to depending on the most interesting offers they
receive. The Draft just bails out teams with questionable management. It
really bothers that the spurs have been getting high 20s picks for the last
decade and they are still a good and well managed organizations whereas the
raptors have been bad for a long time and they keep getting high picks…
this is my favorite sports talking channel i always check in on the new
videos love the input y’all being ever single day.
I hate this man. I know they are trying to prevent teams from intentionally
tanking. But it would just help the top tier teams. I mean they already get
the bottom picks and to give them top picks just cause of this wheel is
1st public commment :D
Like many of the comments below, I think that this is a radical step to
solve what isn’t an enormous problem. There haven’t been that many cases
of even alleged “tanking” in the history of the league. Usually teams just
aren’t very good. Did the 2007 Celtics, who lost 18 games in a row, “tank”
to try to get Oden or Durant? It didn’t seem like they had a wealth of
talent. They certainly didn’t have a lead with a minute to go and then
pull all their starters or shoot at their own basket to try to lose those
games. The Spurs have a new common practice of sitting all of their Big 3
for certain games. Are they not accused of tanking only because they
happen to be a good team? If the Wizards sat their three best players,
“tanking” would be the only thing anyone was talking about. So the issue
is kinda amorphous and doesn’t necessarily encapsulate the problem with the
league, which is that there are only about 15 superstars, and they like to
coagulate on the same “super teams” in order to try to win, and the rest of
the league has a lot of 2nd and 3rd tier talent, and it isn’t a very good
overall product. Saying to a team like the Sixers “Ok, we’ll instate this
draft whereby you’ll pick 22nd, then 16th, then 7th, then 28th, then 12th,
then 21st, then 3rd in 7 years!!!!” isn’t going to do nearly anything for
the franchise, the current coach, the current players, the fans–anyone.
Also, as people have pointed out, sometimes the #1 guy available is
Shaquille O’Neal, and sometimes it is Kwame Brown, and the team that, 19
years from now, gets the Kwame Brown draft is completely and utterly
I don’t think that the current NBA draft system is the problem. For one
thing, teams don’t really tank. They just plain suck. Look at the Nets.
They gambled the next 5-6 years on winning now. What happened? They put
together an old injury prone team that doesn’t mesh well together and is
poorly coached. They did the opposite of tanking and ended up with a worse
team than the Raptors and Celtics, who are rebuilding teams. Fun fact: The
San Antonio Spurs have not had a top 15 pick since they drafted Tim Duncan
#1 back in 1998, and they’ve only had one top 20 pick(James Anderson in
2010) in that same time span. A higher draft pick doesn’t really make you a
better team. Good scouting and good management does.
At the end of the day the real question that we should be asking is how can
we improve the overall quality of the game. I think that the maturity of
players coming into the league is an issue that needs to be address. I
don’t care how good of athlete a guy is, he should not be drafted top 5
without having solid fundamentals. I’m thinking of guys like Michael
Kidd-Gilchrist, or Tristan Thompson. And way too many glorified D-Leaguers
get drafted in the first round too. I think that making guys play in
college or overseas for at least 3 years(like the NFL) would be the way to
go. You really don’t get a big enough sample size of guys with the current
one and done rules. A guy can be a phenomenal athlete, he can get hot at
the right time in the NCAA tournament, and earn a top 5 pick without having
the skills to be an NBA starter. That’s a real problem that this wheel
system wouldn’t fix at all.
Does anybody else here the fuzz sound whenever Rick talks? and I dont like
the idea, lets just stick with the old.
Bad Teams get good players to try and even it out, Good Teams get Worse
Players for the same, and look its not even a garuntee that the player is
going to be good or bad, look at MCW he wasnt too high in the picks, then
Think about Kwame Browne being number 1 pick. I think this is a bad idea as
GM’s wouldnt really be doing the scouting they would like to, but instead
its the rookies deciding were they want to go kind of.
The draft isn’t as simple as getting a top 5 or 10 pick. There are going to
be more busts than steals in every draft.
The idea of “tanking” is so bizarre. American sports need a good dose of
Socialism rewards tanking.
I don’t see to big a problem with “tanking.” It’s how teams have
developed/rebuilt themselves forever. That being said, this scenario would
be interesting, but I still don’t agree with it.
One thing about “tanking” is bad teams wont beat up and/or injure the good
players. They already know they gonna loose so why fight too hard.
