LeBron on Contraction: Remember last week how the league’s best player was all for the idea of eliminating a few teams? He says he, uh … didn’t say that. “I had no idea what the word ‘contraction’ meant before I saw it on the Internet … I never even mentioned that. That word never even came out of my mouth.” Says ESPN’s John Hollinger: “While one can make a financial argument against continuing to operate franchises in places like New Orleans or Memphis, the basketball argument is ridiculous.” Peter Vecsey agreed with LeBron: “Meanwhile, in a last-ditch stab at fairness, as tactless as LeBron’s proposition was, it happens to be accurate despite yesterday’s attempted retraction for obvious reasons … Fact is, the NBA is watered down, and teams were better, overall, back in the ’80s.” Hey LeBron, you were right.
