A-Train is GREAT! His banner in the practice gym should be the same size as KK's and DM's. Fire the dude responsible for that slight.

Great, so they can make a larger poster of AT... AND open the windows in case of paint and solvent offgassing. :lol:

Out of curiosity, why do you begrudge anybody for making what the market dictates? Owners, franchise values, TV networks, stadiums, apparel companies, etc. are all making HUGE profits. NBA teams have a small roster compared to the other two major sports, 82 games (plus playoffs), and making a ton of money. Shouldn't that money filter down to the players on the court?

If the money doesn't go to the players, who actually ARE the league, it goes to the owners - who are already billionaires.

I'm thrilled AT is being rewarded for being one of the Top 250 NBA players in the league...and arguably the world. There should be a premium for being one of the Top 0.00000001% of people, especially when they generate so much revenue.

True. I tell hockey to go to hell every day, so I guess I can't be too judgmental.

Echo the "making huge profits." So much money, that the salary cap jumped from $70MM to $94 MM this year, by my math a 34% increase. I am glad it's being shared with players, too. As for the A-Train...he has worked unbelievably hard to make himself an NBA player and couldn't be happier for him.
