Vegas market will be a profitable one … will be packed even if they have shitty team . Not just the local but the casinos will be buying some seats to give to clients .

It's stupid to let NBA guys play in Eurobasket. All risk, no reward.

I didn't watch a single game. International tournaments are stupid and worthless. Look at what happened to Gallinari.

It's an ignorant view especially from a guy who watches any sport anyway even wrestling. Watched Dirk playing in the second German league before the hype and knew he will end up in the NBA.

When he made it to the NBA is when he began to matter.

International basketball teams are pretty much one or two NBA players carrying a bunch of guys that can't even be a training camp body, playing against another team with one or two NBA quality guys. Might as well be watching college or high school ball.

You really don't watch it. The times were you could send a B or C team to the world cup are long gone. Giannis and Jokic would play the finals with your logic but they aren't.

The majority of the players aren't NBA guys. That's a fact. They would be if they could, but NBA teams don't want them. Because they suck.

The strongest league and the strongest individual players don't always win the cup. The best team wins. We beat Giannis with Schröder tells all but you didn't watch it anyway.

I didn't watch it because it literally matters less than NBA Summer League games.

Aces just brought Vegas it's first-ever pro-team championship.

I don't think anyone here would have ever guessed it would be a WNBA team, but they're now forever etched into this city's history. They played their butts off and it was a really entertaining game to watch.

Simmons also already played the mental health card. Probably pretty good for the Nets.

NBA players shouldn't be paid for games/practices missed due to 'mental health'.

Kind of contradicting to lower age required and mental health ….. anyway it will paved way for levron to played with his kids .

Owners need more leveraged playing fields cause after all they are the ones writing the checks . Nets put up a lot off goodwill moneys for drama queens .

It appears that Suns owner Robert Sarver will be selling both the Suns and Mercury teams. He was recently banned from the NBA for a year and fined $10 million.

As a lapsed fan of the Washington C-words, I applaud any instance of fan/league pressure forcing out a shit owner.
