Read The F.A.Q.

Hopefully your typing fingers will be slowed by your brain the next time you suggest the NBA institutes a soft cap, or anything else the CBA already has. Why not blog about trade demands hurting trade value? Or water being too wet?

Um, Ty was calling for softer trade restrictions, for the most part. Have any thoughts about that, Hot Shit?

Softer trade restrictions, or "the disappearance of contract-matching"?

Ty's suggestions, a tiered luxury tax, no contract matching, and a softer (?) cap really don't have any logic behind them.

A team pays the luxury tax a dollar for every dollar over it pays over cap (with some exceptions). What good does Ty's vague answer to that do, when the luxury tax already performs that function? The more a team pays in salary, the higher the tax.

Without matching salaries in trades, how do teams manage their cap? I have no problem with rants and ideas, but a fundamental flaw like that means someone is wasting their time.

The main reason behind Ty's limited exploration of the CBA seemed to be Memphis' not-so-great talent return for Gasol. The Grizz had a shot at a better package from the Bulls last season, but shot themselves in the foot by holding out for something more. Expiring contracts really do expire.
