No, of course not. No problem with the NBA
It's pretty clear that the NBA is a meritocracy where players make it on their ability, hustle and desire the entire game for the highly paying fans and their admirable lifestyles for young people.
Decisions aren't made for contract and salary cap reasons like trading someone so they can be retired by another team.
All the decisions on Pops, of course, have been entirely on what he can bring to the team and whether he is one of the best 15 of the Raptors and not as important a contributor as say Patrick O'Bryant.
The NBA is a great eample of free market economics where ability, talent, desire and teamwork are always rewarded. And the games are really fun to watch for their scrappy play and professional quality teamwork.
