    Of the cities with teams that should be on the block SacTown was the one I thought *should* stay put. Why was New Orleans except from relocation for 2 years why the league owned it? What the hell are the Hornets out there, and don't get me started about the joke the Bucks are.

    Are you in a position to determine which team is ripe for a move and which team is not?

    I take it you're an avid NBA fan. Others aren't. Their opinion is just as valid.

    James, I was not, as I have already stated, trying to be a troll. Really. Perhaps my initial post was too brief. However, I then elaborated on my opinion. That opinion is in fact on topic. You just disagree with it, and you appear to have a hard time disagreeing in a level headed manner. "Trolling" your post history, I can see that this is not an isolated incident for you. In any case, I am sorry that I have caused you angst and I will leave you to "your" thread.

    Not really. There aren't any owners that are selling right now. Minni was up on the blocks a while ago, but that purchase was shot down because the financials of the purchasing group in NO was pretty bad. Since then, other than the Maloofs, teams have been stable. The reality is, unless you're up to your ears in debt (like the Maloofs) profit sharing and the cap will generally still make less competitive teams (i.e. crappy teams) profitable.

    Unfortunately, this is the state of the NBA. Back to Lugan's 2nd post that the league is less attractive than it used to be. Pirating another city's team is not something I want to be cheering for.

    Pot, kettle, black. You're known to do this too as are 99% of members, so stop playing the victim. As for disagreeing in a level headed manner, did you *really* need to move the the Junior High, "Dude... Mello out"? What about the "I would think someone with the name "Mello" would tend to react to an opinion like mine a bit more mildly"?

    After making those comments, let's ask who's level headed here? Did you think you were funny? Like a clown? Or did you think that weak humor veiled as passive aggression was a way to be sneaky and sly? I also asked to take this to PM, but you continue to troll, somehow pretending that "I don't mean to

    BTW, I personally I think it's funny that you got trolled...

    Only way to settle this, a cast off. First combatant to cast into a hula hoop placed 80' away wins. Loser gives the winner his fly rod.

    $.02

    I think a one on one basketball game or a game of PIG would be in keeping with the on going debate.
