At some point, all that player movement becomes too much player movement and you're left watching an incessant merry-go-round of players and jerseys, shaking your head. We're certainly headed in that direction. If you view the new CBA as a work in progress solution, as I do, then this increased movement is one of the major downfalls of the league's relatively positive new labour agreement.One of the reasons I don't watch the NBA much is I don't like all of the player movement.
