    the players are overpaid for sure and always have been. If you think they are not, then the Ryan Anderson salary debate is not worth it.

    Perhaps. One deadline trade deal might get them over the top of those other bubble teams.

    Maybe they fold the rest of their poker hands

    Ryan Anderson is overpaid. We will have to send out assets in order to trade him. That's not up for a debate.

    Saying 99% of NBA players are overpaid is a dumb statement. The money is there. Who should make that money? The NBA is nothing without its players. Ryan Anderson is not worth anything near 20 million. But Harden is arguably worth more than his salary. If it is so easy then maybe I should go do it

    how much should the owners make in your opinion ? because without them you don't have a team

    When a team loses money because the players are not good enough to draw the fans in, the owners have to cover the costs of the loss.

    The Cavs lost money last season also

    you can always get players, it is an endless stream really. I'm not saying those players will be good, but you will have no problem getting them. I'm not saying Ryan Anderson isn't getting a big contract, but the salaries lifted because of the new TV agreement and loads of players get a lot of money now. Salaries now are so crazy, i just focus on how many years a guy gets

    Pelicans are 6 games over .500, surely they will finish above .500

    Chris Paul tried to will the team win. Feel bad for the guy. Other than CP3 and Gordon, the entire team played horrible. Can't believe coach couldn't even give Green a go tonight.

    6 games means nothing when there's still 34 games left to play. There's no surely there

    Our offense always sucks lately.

    What a waste that benching Green with averaging 15pts per game.
