so how many teams does the NBA have compared to NFL and MLB? even NHL i guess too. I just think the talent base is so immediately limited do to the nature of needing to be generally speaking 6'6 or better.
Lots of good 6, 5'11" athletes running around in other sports
But I think you could argue that basketball is just different than any other sport. It's the most "individual" team sport, if that makes sense.
You can just plug some dude in at right guard or something in football and he can be decent and no one would notice any difference. You can't take at guy and replace your PG and there not be any huge difference.
But I agree that there is never anything to chose from FA-wise. But that makes it even more fun for the fans when we make a few exciting signings in the off-season.
