    This guy specifically has been pushing an "abolish the draft" narrative for multiple years now.

    Once those millions start hitting the bank account, I think they'll get a little happier.

    Yeah if you told me I had to live in OKC instead of living my current life in ATL, I'd be hurt.

    I mean, writers keep talking about getting rid of the draft and making it a free market, but I think they'll be shocked by the lack of positive results.

    I get it but everyone can’t go to LA. It’s like nba the only league where 80% of its athletes want to be in one fukkin city.

    Even the worst city in the nba you’re in the top 1 percent living in the best area, eating at the best restaurants and you’re only there for half the season. Clubs, fine women, exotic cars are everywhere and you have the money to fly in thots if that’s what you desire.

    Part of it is because you can do anything but you cant do anything. What i mean by that is that before the social media era if you were rich you could do anything and not have to worry about it coming back on you. You have to be in PR mode 100% of the time, so even though the media and fans are asking for honesty and to show you are a real person, the moment you do that they on your ass killing you.

    I remember back when i lived in Memphis one day i saw Mike Conley at a local restaurant/bar and he had folks lined up at his table trying to talk to him and he looked like he just wanted to be left alone.

    A month later i saw Keith Sweat and he looked comfortable as hell at a table with a woman and nobody was hounding him.

    Dwight Howard turned down the Lakers, Lamarcus Aldridge turned down the Lakers, Demar Derozan turned down the Lakers. This narrative that 80% of NBA athletes want to go to one city is not true.
