I realize it is impossible to change a word that has entered into the lexicon, but the phrase "Free Agency" annoys me and does not make sense.
The athletes in question are becoming "Free Agents" , not starting an agency. So the actual phrase should be
"Free Agentry"

Millsap goes west.

So the already superior west gets Millsap, Butler, George, Teague and maybe Porter. The east picks up JJ Redick and?

They might have to eliminate the conferences and take top 16

I have been a proponent of a top 16 format for years.

Good for him. Dude wants to win and probably knows he'll make it up in other ways. The Durant name becomes worth a lot more if he wins another title and officially becomes the new king of the NBA. I saw Kyle Lowry got $100M for 3 years so Durant left a ton of money on the table

Maybe I need to watch Lowry play this season to see what he does to earn that kind of money.

I only remember him from the playoffs a few years ago when he was absolutely terrible shooting something like 20%. Apparently he's pretty good in the reg season.

So how is the league going to deal with a 4-0 2018 NBA finals? Somebody throw Cleveland a free agent cause there is no legit reason to watch slaughters take place. The Cavs have not done one thing to improve, unless aging is the new plan.
