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. Plus the fact teams pick-up contracts instead of the player themselves, because it fits into the cap system is not fan friendly. How many times have you read Team A from the NBA picked up a $6 million contract because it expires at the end of the year, and traded a star or very good player to Team B because he no longer could fit under the cap next year? This same sequence may become more and more prevalent in the NHL...
