Get out Championship last Sun. Mar. 14? your brackets and let's see! By Shaun Smith Sports Reporter IfI were to name ten NBA players, could you tell me which team they play for? How about Christian Laettner or Juwan Howard? How about Marcus Camby or Vin Baker? Include Dale Davis, Stephan Marbary, Derrick Fisher, Dimeke Mutumbo, Jerry Stackhouse, and Rasheed Wallace and let's see how well you do on this quiz. In an age of hi-speed free agent wizardry and entire team trades, the basketball world looksless familiar every day. Will today's players ever have a jersey retired? Probably not, as long as the league continues to play rummy with a hand full of college skippers. How about this-let's make trades seasonal. I mean, where do you draw the line-should a player he able to be traded in the NBA Finals? How about this--let's have a trade cap for each team and for each player. This would simmer down the number of times a player could be forked out. How about this-A player must deal with the team of his choice. Let's revitalize the league as if it were a vast sea of colleges with hundreds of re- cruiters. Each player would be able to choose his team of choice; however, if something doesn't work out-too bad. There is plenty of talent in this country and plenty of talent that never gets recognized. If you don't like or agree with any of my proposals above, let's try this-In the first and second round of the play- offs, two players are required to swap teams-only the teams they are play- ing against. Then, in the Eastern Con- ference Finals and the Western Con- ference Finals, four players must switch from each side-from west to east, and east to west. And, finally, the cherry bomb, baby! I.n the NBA Fi- nals, the entire squads must com- pletely switch teams each and every game. One night, you're Dirk Nowitzki for the Mavericks, the next, you're Dirk Nowitzski for the Nets.
