Tax Cut

Posted by Tariq al Haydar

J.A. Adande has presented an interesting proposition for the NBA: Do away with the luxury tax.

In this era of expansion and cost-cutting, teams are just trying to stay financially secure. Stop taxing teams excessively, or else we'll wind up with an all-star team made up entirely of expiring contracts. Long live Raef LaFrentz.

Nice idea......too many deep pocketed cats that won't part with an extra dime though.

i dont think so. Then you would end up with team A being Dwight Howard-Amare-Carmelo-Micheal Redd-Chris Paul and team B being Kendrick Perkins-Carl Landry-Tayshaun Prince-Charlie Bell - Steve Blake. Team A will be winning games by 100 points, team B will always suck.

My point is big market teams will dominate.
