The New NBA Free Agency




 

So I try not to let sports affect my life too much, but unfortunately some things still hurt.  As I was lying awake in bed last night, I was thinking about LeBron and such, and a disturbing thought occurred to me: What if this is how NBA free agency is going to go from now on?  Now I don't mean drawn out, egotistical free agency periods capped off with a national tv "decision".  The NBA/ESPN is not going to have to hype up another LeBron until the current one leaves, so hopefully we (the national audience, not just cavs fans) won't have to watch something this ridiculus anytime soon.  But I was thinking about things from another angle.  Most of these NBA stars have been playing in the same AAU circles since they were in what, middle school?  Unlike football, all of these star basketball players have known each other for years, and it seems like these days all of these guys are good friends.  What if LeBron, Wade and Bosh (and CP3 next year?) start a new trend for stars playing together?  There's no hate in the NBA anymore, and unlike twenty years ago it seems they would rather play with each other then beat each other.  So what happens if this is the new norm?  If every couple of years superstars band together to get a title or two, then branch out again?  If so, the only places that are ever going to win are the top free agency locations, like Miami, New York, LA, etc.  Anyways, its probably a stupid thought, but hey, what else is the internet for?  Keep your heads up Cleveland fans, becuase when we do win something, its going to feel that much better.
