This article likes to blame "this economy" for the necessity of the new "show". But the truth is the NBA was already dying on the vine before "this economy" ever hit and fortunately for the NBA they can point to the economy now and use that as the excuse as to how to figure out how to reinvent themselves. Lebron James is the next Michael Jordan, but he'll need some management somewhere to figure out how to build a championship team around him if he is to help rebuild the NBA like Jordan did. I'm not sure they have any smart enough management left who can also figure out how to even get Lebron on their team let alone build enough compliments around him to get it done. I wish them luck, but I'm not sure it's possible with current contracts in this economy.
