    San Antonio and Miami may be small markets, but that doesn't change the fact the NBA is a league of haves and have nots.

    You have 6 or 7 serious contenders in that league. The rest of the teams have no chance whatsoever of winning anything.

    i'm pretty sure they are somewhere in the middle as far as spending, but they are the most efficient spending team in the nba, meaning they get the more wins for less money than anybody else in the league

    I think there's also a safeguard so that the 3 worst teams can't fall out of the top 5 picks or something. I don't think the NFL requires a lottery like stated one out of 22 and team game, but I think the NBA does, it's completely star driven. The only "starless" team I can remember ever winning was the 2000 and some Pistons that beat the Malone/Payton Lakers.

    Nay, keep it the way it is, but I hate the new format.

    I'm old school and like the draft on Saturdays and Sundays.

    This Thursday and Friday night format stinks.

    How about keeping the current system, except with 1 major change. keep the draft in order of worst record to best record (with the playoff success altering it a bit).....but move it all back 1 the worst team in the league picks #2.

    The #1 pick goes to the Super Bowl Champion. Now this would be another incentive to winning the Super Bowl.

    I know it is way out there.....but I guarantee if the Champ gets the top pick, players and teams would be going all out to win, even moreso than they are now.

    I think this would be the worst possible way to handle it.

    Superbowl winners have QBs.

    QBs are the end-all, be-all in the NFL.

    You'd essentially have a scenario where Superbowl champions are ransoming off the #1 overall pick every year, fleecing the rest of the league and acquiring a multitude of high picks and widening the gap between the elite and the bottom feeders.

    Imagine if the Giants, who have a QB, just auctioned off Luck. They'd have received enough to stock their roster to remain competitive for a number of years.

    I would prefer the draft be done away with altogether and use a recruiting system like colleges recruiting high school players.That was no college player is stuck with haveing to play for a team he does not want to play for and any team can actively go after any player they want..

    We'd have a pro bowl team every year under that scenario.

    As a Cowboys fan I'd love it but it would be terrible for the league.

    This would make it very difficult for teams to dethrone a champion since they'd essentially be able to be in the drivers seat for years and years and years.

    Only if David Stern were in charge of it and he was a Cowboy fan.
