    There was an article not long ago comparing Indiana to 3rd world countries and yes if Indiana was a country it would be a 3rd world country, by the way 3rd world country doesn't mean that the country is in ruins or anything like that.
    Who would even write an article like that? For reference, just about every state except California and Texas would qualify as well (New York included) depending on what your factors are.

    If I was already a millionaire and I could choose to play basketball in New Jersey or Turkey, I'd play in Turkey.

    HMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm................... .

    New Jersey is a hop skip & a jump away from NYC, so I'm not sure that your use of Jersey is proper.

    Honestly I'd have to think that Indiana would probably be one of the if not the least desirable places for a player to play. At least Utah has mountains and is not that far from Vegas.

    Indiana has........ Nice decent living conditions but let's be honest in the entertainment department we are kind of lakcing.

    Yeah this is a sign that he will most likely not re-sign with New Jersey.

    We need to get our cash ready because we're going to be one of the few fairly decent teams to pay him well.

    Bird, **** David West! We need Deron Williams!

    I think these players going overseas is a big risk for them. What if they go over there and do not dominate like the laymen think they should?

    I think if this becomes a trend that teams will start digging their heals in even more.

    What then? D-Will won't get his max contract anymore? NBA fans won't buy his jerseys?
    The only serious risk is injury.

    I think anyone would prefer to play in the pros if they could than play for a dinky little overseas team.

    And no...we don't need a new NBA! Williams isn't even 100% to sign over there and it won't be long term. Just for a season at most.

    Then we can sign him.

    He won't be able to sign with the Lakers or Knicks at this point considering they would be way over cap.

    How so? The players getting a little bit of cash playing overseas while subjecting themselves to "basketball miles" and injury potential, harming NBA team investments in them does not seem to lead to an NBA "digging their heels in." Heck, if THAT is the NBA's response, you'll probably see more NBA players actually going overseas long-term.

    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Holy cow. I am beginning to wonder if some of these people have ever left the city they were born in, for any reason at all. Just discuss basketball. At least if we disagree on that it can be construed as a matter of opinion. Some of what I have read here is just untrue.

    My piece of advice, get a passport and use it. A lot.

    Well .... not all of us have kept up with stupidty and are just now reading it for the first time. Probably because I am 1,000 miles from home traveling as we speak. Something that needs to be done by some more apparently.

    Ill move on when its not new to me, mmmk? Not everyone hawks the forum all day and sees it at the same time. KayThksBye.

    I am not from Indiana, I'm from a "developing country" or as we like to call it a 3rd world country, trust me I've use my passport few times, thanks for the advise though.

    Note:I'm done with this argument anyway.

    It will do us very well though on the brightside.

    We're currently talking about the guy we have the best chance of landing out of most teams.

    Because we'd be able to actually offer him a contract, a good one?

    We're also not a terrible team to go to compared to some other teams out there with money.

    As for Deron Williams and the Utah Jazz, they both needed to part ways for the better.

    The owners will more than likely get their strict salary cap which will cause teams like the Lakers and Knicks not to be able to sign whoever they please just because it's a big market. Of course they can trade. Say the Knicks want Dwight Howard. The Magic will definitely want Amare Stoudemire in return. These teams just can't buy their players they did last summer.

    These stars have limited choices here to sign with. Either re-sign or pick a different team, but it might not be your dream team in the big city on stage.

    This lockout will do us great actually. We're going to have an even bigger advantage. Still a pipedream to get a Deron Williams, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard type of player, but it's definitely not impossible with the owners plan in place and this class being there in 2012.

    You're right. Why doesn't everyone get over things just because you have, or why don't we all have the basketball avatar going through a hoop. Get over yourself. Just because YOU'RE over something or whatever, doesn't mean nobody else has a right to say something about it or state their opinion just because 'Swish' is over it.

    God forbid I reply in the 'quick reply' section at the bottom of page 2 because I am 1,000 miles from my PC and on my cell. God forbid anyone else have an opinion about something, because you're over it its like God has spoken and everyone should move on.

    Shake your head at your arrogance that anyone should care if you're over it. Or shake it at the idea that it's not okay to post without reading every word in a topic. Good God, Im sorry forum Police that we didn't do it EXACTLY your way. Christ.

    I get what you are saying but the truth is while we have the ability to be a great team with a paul or Williams type, we wont get them. We will have to be smart drafters and pick up a diamond in the rough say in 3 years when Jake odum comes out (see my profile picture).
