Derrick Rose Thinks Salary Cap Should Go Away

Derrick Rose has a suggestion for the NBA. Get rid of the salary cup. Rose told the Associated Press on Tuesday:

“I wish it was back like where it was in the old days where there wasn’t a cap,”. “Back in the day, they were giving guys coming out of college multimillion-dollar contracts, so why stop it now? The game is growing. There’s no need to stop it.”

The problem with this statement is for every Blake Griffin or Derrick Rose who appear to be underpaid based on their performance, there are many more players that turn out to be busts.

I’d be shocked to see the NBA drop the salary cap. I do think a result of the new CBA will be a revised cap. Now we just need to get the players back on the court.
