The days of the super power are over....

The owners have been kicking the unions .... for the last ten years. Hopefully Childress will head overseas, others will follow, then the market will be forced to correct itself (pure capitalism at it's best!!!).

However, in five to ten years NBA Asia will be providing NBA owners with more money than you or I could ever dream of. Therefore, this market correction will be extremely short lived. In ten years D-league players could be earning 400K per year.
