    And pay huge luxury tax penalties. At some point it becomes unaffordable. Even the Lakers didnít want to pay it anymore.

    yes. And if you're a dynasty and winning titles you pay those penalties. You don't try to get cute and lose of your most important players for nothing.

    True. Ownership has gone into the Luxury Tax before. They will do it again. Especially with the move to San Francisco and the NEW Arena (Chase Center) for the 2019-20 season. They are literally going to be printing $$ with the new Arena and surrounding developments (office towers, restaurants and housing) in SF. CHA CHING!!! $ $ $ $

    You can see construction and pics of the new arena here: https://www.chasecenter.com/

    video here:

    They are going to have the means to stay competitive for awhile. While it is true that eventually Curry, Klay, KD and Draymond will not always play together, they should have at least 3 or so more years. Then the Warriors can go after Anthony Davis or something...lol...

    Yes, eventually it is not possible. 5 max $ deals or something.

    The new Arena and development should cover it for a few years as I mentioned above. Keep the rings coming on this run at least while Curry, KD, Klay, Green are in their primes. My guess is that KD leaves first in a few years.

    Obviously you keep the run going as long as you can, but at some point you have to make financial decisions. This still is a business after all.

    This is certainly true. Just don't think this happens next year. Like you said you keep the run going as long as you can.

    I really hate that teams have to make a choice between winning and finance. Something is broken.

    It is not quite cut and dry. While the Salary Cap/Lux tax is really used by the owners to keep salaries down, it does also provide some competitive balance for the smaller market teams.

    Do you go to a hard Cap? No Cap/tax?

    I spoke on the phone with one of our Directors this morning who hails from the Cleveland, OH area and now works up in Northern California. He told me that Lebron is dead to him now. He was joking. Sort of. He also told me that the Lakers won't finish in the top 4 in the Western Conference. He bet me a whole dollar. I think the Lakers are no worse than #3 right now in the West with their current roster.

    They’ll slot somewhere between the second and fourth seed.
