Kyrie Irving tells the Cavalier front office that he wants to be traded. He mentions San Antonio, New York, Miami, among others. James has raised fears earlier that he might consider leaving next summer when he expressed some dissatisfaction with the team's situation. You have to wonder what these guys expect when they are the class of the East and have a championship under their belt. They are...were...maybe one top player away from challenging Golden State. Clearly, there are no heroes here, like Kevin Durant, willing to sacrifice for the team.

I tell you what...Kyrie Irvin goes to San Antonio then Golden State better stay level headed as they approve their 2X Western Coference defense!

The saga of Kyrie has taken an interesting turn. He is on an Asian tour for Nike and has refused to communicate with the Cavaliers even though the front office has tried repeatedly to reach him. Through a friend he let it be known that he very much wants to be a NY Knick. Is it Carmelo plus future picks for Kyrie?

This raises an interesting question about compensation.

Steph Curry signed this summer for $201 million and offered to give up some cash if it would help sign the free agents. There is an NBA salary rule (far beyond my comprehension) that allowed the Warriors to pay him and Durant without penalizing the team for big increases for Iguodala (48 million) and Livingston (16 million). Clark left, but he is not a big loss.

The average salary for NBA players across all levels is $5,012,892.

The scarcity of elite talent and popularity of the sport have helped propel the NBA to the highest average salary among major American sports, topping Major League Baseballís $4.4 million per year and more than doubling the NFLís average salary of $2.1 million.
