The Lakers will always be contenders without a hard cap. The Yankees as well. It is complete BS that rich teams can buy their way into contention and the luxury tax idea is proven to not work. Just ask any fans of the Royals, Pirates and Padres. Fans of the Yankees, Red Sox and Lakers - for some strange reason - seem to like it fine.
I don't live in the cities of any of those teams (and in fact the Blue Jays have probably been hurt by the luxury tax)...and I still wouldn't have a problem if it was introduced for hockey (and the Leafs aren't even my #1 team)
