District of Minnesota.
So, let's declare that the entire league must deal with all players on a team by team basis. That will be just awesome. You will have, basically, AAU teams. The top AAU teams will gather the 10 best guys and beat the shit out of everyone else by 50. So you will end up with A Teams and B teams and C teams. There will be three leagues, like soccer in Europe.
So, next year, top pick -- James McAdoo -- hey James, wanna play for the defending NBA champs who will pay you $20MM a year to play for them, or you wanna play C level with Minnesota?
Yeah, I will go with the first thingy you said there.
Wanna play in New York for $10MM or Memphis for $10MM? I will take NY. Our owner has $4 billion and can pay you three times as much as anyone else -- OK, deal.
