    The Big Three and Super Teams

    Then Lebrons, Stoudemire, Melo, now Williams,,,all going to major markets...Is this good for the NBA???The trend seems to be at least 2 superstars to a team.
    Who's next to demand a trade.?
    As a fan I think they should at least wait till their contracts are up.
     Agree or disagree?

    A contract is a honorable agreement between parties. Your word is attached to it. Sorry for being long winded, I agree that players should honor what they sign.

    Melo and Williams and Lebron all honored their contract.  They played hard in te markets they were in.  Lebron and DWill (especially Dwill) did not even say they weren't staying.  Its the press that can't let go of the issue and makes it a huge public deal.  But, Melo never demanded a trade.  He simply said he wasn't going to sign and extension in Denver and Denver didn't want to take a chance of getting nothing so they traded him.  Lebron played out his contract.  DWill was surprised he was even traded.....didn't know it until this week and NEVER said he wasn't going to play out his contract.

    So.....where's a link that says they didn't play out their contracts?

    Why do you think Melo and Williams were traded, because they did not honor their contracts this year.

    Re: The Big Three and Super Teams

    If a player fueds with his long term coach, isn"t he saying he wants to be traded? I a player says he won't sign a new contract, isn't he saying he wants to be traded? I don't think most will come out and say it directly, but by their attitudes and actions, i think we can read between the lines.

    Yes, the Nuggets decided Anthony's destination by making the big trade with the New York Knicks. But as Kroenke said Tuesday, in a blunt way, the move had less to do with cutting costs, or getting younger, as it did with Melo simply wanting out.

    Re: The Big Three and Super Teams

    Williams took some heat this month for the retirement of Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. The two had disagreed during halftime of a home loss to the Bulls on Feb. 9. Sloan retired the next day.

    "Maybe arguing was the last straw, so there I am, guilty of that," Williams said at the time. "But I think anybody who believes I could force Coach Sloan to resign is crazy. He's stronger than that and personally if I said that to him, he'd probably go tell me to go do something."

    Chris Paul wants to be Traded.  He doesn’t think that the New Orleans Hornets are going to be a contender in the upcoming years, so he wants out.  His top choice would be to join the New York Knicks. There he would be the star in the biggest market, and would have a decent chance at competing against Miami’s big three.

    Orlando would be the second choice on Chris Paul’s list.  He would be able to join Dwight Howard and instantly become a contender for the NBA Championship.

    Chris Paul’s Perfect Scenario would be to join Amare Stoudemire in New York, and bring in Carmelo Anthony to complete their own three They would then be able to compete  against the trio in Miami.

    A report from CBSSports.com said Paul saw what James did in signing to play alongside Wade and Bosh and has designs on doing something similar.

    Paul and his representatives are expected to meet with the Hornets within the next week.  If they can not give him a team that will provide him with a chance to win, then he will be asked to be traded to a contender.http:

    Do a job to the best of your ability, no matter what posistion you are in. IF a player is tanking it, he is gutless. You sign it, honor it, play with pride, then get the hell out.

    Re: The Big Three and Super Teams

    If Paul was going anywhere I'd prefer to see him in Orlando. Not much of a Knicks fan. Still, it'd be nice see him finish his career as a Hornet, but that doesn't seem at all likely.

    I really do like the idea of one team players. But it's a very rare thing in sports.
