Silver: New TV Deal “Will Have a Profound Effect” on Salary Cap


NBA commissioner Adam Silver said at a news conference in New York on Monday that the league’s new nine-year TV deal with ESPN and Turner “will have a profound effect” on the salary cap.

Bernucca: 30 NBA Stars, Led by Chris Paul, On The Spot for 30 NBA Teams This Season


A couple of weeks ago, we had Chris Paul atop our list of NBA point guards. No surprise there. Although he plays a position that is very deep in talent, Paul is a fantastic leader with an inhuman competitive streak. He ranks annually among the leaders in assists and steals. And believe it or not, he’s still on the right side of 30, at least until next year’s playoffs. But Paul is atop another of our lists list as well – NBA
