I wonder how the NBA is going to deal with its Luka problem. (((Adam Silver))) and the (((masters))) he serves have to be very unhappy and nervous that a blond-haired, blue-eyed white kid from Europe is about to be the face of the league for the next 15 years. The odious LeBron is on his last legs and there is no one else with any sort of star power to take the baton, it’s all about Luka. They have allowed folks like Dirk, Gasol, Ginobili, etc to prosper over the past 20 years because while great, HOF level players, they were never in any danger of upsetting the status quo. This is different. Luka is taking over the league. They didn’t see it coming and now they have to deal with it. On a separate note, I keep hearing Kevin Love’s name pop up as a potential trade to Dallas which would truly elevate them to title contenders. If that happens, I will do the unthinkable and buy some sort of an NBA pass to watch all the Mavericks games.
