Shannon Sharpe: "Now Skip"
I’m for players. The work hard and that’s why people come out. The should control where they go. Period.
Players wanna win championships nobody wants to play the game and end up like Ewing,Miller & Barkley never winning a championship
No they don't. These players could care less about chips. If that were the case some wouldn't leave good situations for a possible flop. The players you're referring to actually did care.
OKC was actually shopping PG and Westbrook, they were planning on trading them to Toronto
Lebron is not playing forever Shannon
Owners has no loyalty therefore players no longer do examples ask Blake Griffin and IT.
Sharpe 'The team is never the villain'Please sir reference: raptors with deman, celtics with IT
Reset the NBA and have a major draft with every players out there
Uhhh noToo many contracts out there and I'm 100% sure Lakers would get a monster squad
It’s ok for a player to ask for a trade but if the team refuses the player better fulfill the contract! Any sulking, sabotaging, or half hearted performance then sue the player!
Nba is scripted
Shannon be talking loud asl 😂💀
Ahhhh, yes. He does...He’s the commissioner. He’s paid to make the big decisions for a reason. Any way to increase parity in the increasingly lopsided NBA is a good thing.
It's still lopsided.
Feels like football never coming
No, it isn't out of control. This is the most exciting summer in NBA HISTORY. Seriously, an old Chinese women came up to me and spoke in broken English and told me she thought Kawahi was going to the Lakers. I've never seen so many people that didn't watch basketball be so excited about things. This is exactly what the NBA needs. Having one strong team and no competition is BORING. This is what the NBA used to be like.
Mark my words, demanding trades is going to result in the owners going on Strike. At the rate we are going the top 20 best players on going to end up on a handful of teams and ruin the league because they will bankrupt small markets, which means less TV advertisement, less merchandise sales, fewer endorsement deals, etc. In fact, I can envision a day when 5 of the top 10 best players will join forces and go after a 9-peat to break the Celtics record of 8 straight. The owners will want to protect their interests and the only way to re-negotiate with the Players Associate is to go on Strike and temporarily shut down the league...as has been before.
If your workplace or employer is not living up to your expectations, you find another gig. This is life. We stand to see one of the best nba seasons ever,, and people have a problem with this??
Shannon is definetely a lebron pon pon girl...
I think that's not even what Adam Silver is talking about...it seems like there's something more going on here and we're going to find out very soon what he's investigating...just saying ... There was a report that Kawhi asked for shares in TFC from the Raptors... So maybe they're investigating the whole Kawhi transaction... I know a lot of owners are very upset about the Paul George request and demand and got exactly what he wanted and let's be honest Adam Silver works for the owners not the players...
Really it's a simple solution if you sign then later on demand a trade make them pay that years salary back to team that their bolting on meaning that 40 or 50 million i had invested from the year before i want it back now you can go wherever you want
Teams are the employers so yes they can do whats best for their business the team but the players are employees and like any other job the employees get paid to do their job and that's it so the players should not be allowed to all for trades at all they are getting their huge money and they and should just do their job unless you want the thugs to run the bank
So it’s wrong for a player to request a trade when they want , but a team can release/trade a player when they want to. It’s only fair.
Ever seen Basketball?
Just remember..... the owners, the league and the refs aren’t good at playing basketball.Just like these two idiots. Stay in your lane. The players should start their own league.It’s not hard to extort and exploit poor people, every industry does it.
i say a contract should be at least 2 yrs. teams will have to do their best to keep top players satisfied to stay.
Week fouls andn defense needs to be addressed
It's plain & simple, you can either take charge of your career (life) or you can leave it up to someone else. Most of us aren't in position to do so, so we're jealous and upset when others can. Things change, when will you?
SOLUTION: Only have 1 year contracts and no trades allowed during the season. Problem solved.
Getting rid of mid-season trades would end all player leverage because sitting out games would accomplish nothing. Good idea. I dont know about 1 years deals though. I like two year deals with player options for third years being the new standard.
Skip and Silver expressing concerns about players demanding trades. Wonder why...
lol they are trying to make as much money as possible while they are in their prime. If they get injured and their career is essential over, will any of you "fans" really go out of your way to lend a helping hand?
both players AND owners got the right to do what's in their best interest -- get that cheddar !if I invest hundreds of millions in a business, and some 'asset' wants to leave -- and he has ever right to do what's best for his legacy and his money -- then I also have every right to voice concerns.
Stop being lazy and build around the player. If you do that regardless of the amount of money you invest, you will always get a good return on their investments
Shannon is a hypocrite bruh I swear. He's saying that teams are trading players yet some of these guys aren't loyal to their own teams themselves like PG and AD go head with that bs
LeBron James!!!!! LeBron James!!!! He wanted to be a Laker and he messed up. LeBron James!!!!!
Why are people at all surprised that players that never really had much growing up or even people that had on little bit, Don't really care about money past a couple hundred million. Seems easy to figure out to me.
Listening to Shannon's infatuation with LeQueen it remaineded me why this show is pathetic😒😒😒😒😒😒😒
Teams can trade players so why players can't ask for a trade?The team doesn't belong to the player, and these players get paid to do their jobs, I thought that's how the world of work was...
team trade players all the time it should be a 2 way street and not only benefit the owners, players should have a lil power in where they work/live
LOL i like how they discourage players from starting a league ..LOL they fear that power
