    The Championship ratings have been going back up, but the regular season has been declining. Why? Because fans of small market teams no longer give a ****. A huge part of that is these players refusing to play for small market teams. I haven't noticed this problem in any other sport, at least not on anything close to the same scale.
    Um, no they're not. Regular season ratings are going up too.

    I still can't believe that Philly got the second best center in the NBA for Iguadola, damn.

    Yeah, that's the type of trade that you wish the Pacers could pull off.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but those are nationally televised games. Find the ratings for local sports networks.

    I might be the only one on this thread who's interested in seeing what impact Iggy will have on the Nuggets. He isn't the pure scorer they need but he'll make them that much more entertaining to watch. Nuggets should be a fun team this year with guys like Iggy, Faried and McGee.
    I agree with you. The Nuggets are going to be a real fun team to watch this year. Iguodala gives them a ton of flexibility with their roster, and they're real deep. How about a smallball lineup of Lawson, Miller, Iguodala, Gallinari, and McGee.

    I think the Nuggets got better. They needed the extra roster spot to sign Quincy Miller, which was probably another reason for the trade.

    You are, infact, the only one who cares about that... BUT, you are right... Nuggets as a fringe play-off team were dangerous last year... Nice to see them bounce back from the enigmatic Carmello departure... They are sure to be a scarier defensive team than last years team. His stellar defensive prowess will no doubt offset the 2 buckets per game that Mcgee will put in the wrong basket... Maybe they got Iggy to defend Jevale after defensive rebounds..

    In 2 years at least 2 of these teams are going to be sorry they made this trade if not 3.
    Philly made out if they can keep Bynum but in the short term they still aren't contending for a title and I have doubts if Bynum stays when you look at the core of that team. Denver is just plain stupid to make this trade. I'm honestly not that high on Iggy but he is a better player then Affalo as of now. In 2 years when their young team might really be coming around Affalo will be the better player. To give up a promising young player for an older player in the same position doesn't make any sense when you look at the stage Denver's team is in and then to throw in a pick is nuts.
    L.A. makes out for a title run this year but if Howard goes to Dallas next year it would be great to see L.A. end up on the short end of the stick just once.
    For the Magic to end up with Affalo and what will likely be a bunch of late 1st. round picks is less then I would have expected for them. When I think about it, there's a decent probability that in 2 years all the teams in this trade are losers.

    Howard will retire a Laker.

    If they could find another big man who can score the ball they could be VERY interesting.

    Meh...same old story.

    The Lakers, once again, look like favorites on paper. We'll just have to see what Mike Brown can do with that offense because he can no longer say, "Just give it to the best player and watch." They have three guys who have been the number 1 option on their teams for the majority of their career. How will they mesh? My guess is that Nash + Older Kobe will equal out to good team work. How do Howard and Gasol work together? Probably like one of the best front courts ever. No, I didn't mean for that to be in green.

    A Miami vs. Los Angeles matchup in the Finals would break television rating records. WAAAYY too much star power in that one. Heck, just thinking about it myself, it would be incredible to watch. It's practically two Dream Teams going at it.

    I'm no bigger fan of the "super team" trend than anyone else, but if they can get this to work out, there's potential for some seriously high quality basketball. Both teams can play amazing defense. Both teams have some of the best individuals in NBA history. If they can figure out the chemistry and teamwork, it'll be tremendous.

    As for the NBA favoring some teams over the others, yeah, it bugs me too. LA and Boston are the cornerstones of the NBA, and they have some bit of good fortune, some bit of good management, some bit of good market, and some bit of being the favored sons. To me, it's what makes being a Pacers fan interesting. Once in a generation, we'll have a shot at making a run. When it finally happens and the pieces fall into place the right way, it will be the most incredible feeling as a fan. Like finding a diamond. There are only so many, and to find one in your backyard is way more exciting than seeing them in a jewelry store.

    Makes me wonder if we could have been part of the deal instead of Philly had we offered up Granger and a couple of 1sts.

    If you're Orlando, how do you manage to get such a crap deal? I'd rather keep Howard to spite him than I would trade him for such a crappy package.

    I find it incredible that Orlando held out this long only to settle for such a crummy deal. Afflalo's a nice role player, and Vucevic quietly had a solid rookie season, but this is by far the weakest return in all the recent superstar deals.

    Philly now has the best center in the East (let's hope Roy can challenge for that title), and has Evan Turner to step into Iguodala's old role. Great deal for therm.

    Denver gets an upgrade at shooting guard. Great deal for them.

    L.A. gets the best center in the league and their next franchise player. Great deal for them.

    Orlando gets table scraps and three low-to-mid 1st-round picks.

    Orlando simply waited too long. It got to the point where Dwight's handful of suitors got narrowed down to pretty much just one team.

    The Finals might end up being the equivalent of dividing the Justice League of America and their super villain counterparts into two equal teams consisting of both super heroes and villains battling for supremacy of the Earth.

    At least the Deciders now have a realistic fear of not winning it all next year.

    It'll be interesting to see what the Lakers decide to do come NEXT year, when the Cap Penalties they'll have will be simply astronomical. Possibly in the high 8 digits.
