What is so "outstanding" about his post? He did a wonderful job explaining what a cap is, but, thanks, I already knew what it was. As i said above, the only thing he posted against a thread was the fact that we will lose our exciting trade deadlines. What he didn't tell you that in the NBA there are huge blockbusters regularly. So, it has been proven that a cap with certain exceptions doesn't put an end to trades. Nor does it put an end to dynasties. What it does is give every team a CHANCE because the rich teams cannot spend well beyond that of the bottom teams.

BTW... 75% of NBA teams were losing money in the early 80's. Bettman was part of turning that around.
