    Best post you've made. Had you managed to incorporate some highscreenballaction talk in it, it'd have been an all-timer.

    Could be wrong, but I believe there is research that backs up what you're saying also. People are more likely to procreate in warm weather.

    What it all comes down to is money. If you offer a player enough, they will play for you. The superstars go to the big markets, though, because they're limited to max contract when they're worth much more and thus need a bigger market to get their worth out of endorsements.

    But even that is going by the wayside with the media we have today. Durant is very popular even though he plays in the smallest market and most remote city.

    I'm not sure what vacationing has to do with a city's livability. There are many great vacation towns I would not wish to live in. Among them: Las Vegas, Orlando, Cancun, New York, D.C. I've lived in Orlando and visited the Twin Cities quite a bit.

    I'm not arguing much here: only the suggestion that T-Wolves is one of the league's five worst jobs. I'm not arguing that it's one of the best. And maybe I'm wrong, but the notion is arguable at best.

    The only bad jobs are the ones made that way be management. Those would be Minnesota because of the horrible GM, NY because of the terrible owner, ditto for Brooklyn, OKC because they're cheap and will lose all their good players in 2 seasons and then no one will want to go there, and Cleveland because of the crazy owner. Those are the 5 worst jobs. Milwaukee may also be one and push it to 6, but they have new owners now.

    Sterling is a horrible owner, but they're finally winning in spite of him.

    Pretty sure Brooklyn's owner(s) are part of why people want to go there. Jay-Z and a Russian play boy...you know the girls they bring to parties LOL!

    Players, maybe, but not coaches. They're saddled with terrible contracts and no draft picks for years now.

    Didn't HOVA sell off his share so he could go into the player representation side of things?

    T Wolves don't worry me. If the Celts or NY came calling, I might get worried.
