Yes you can.  It all depends on getting the right players.

NewportBarGuy: Shannon Sharpe is an asshole.

Yup. Known this since his playing days. He probably gets *extra thick* chowder when he comes to New England.

Yup.
100b and his new life goal is to make a basketball team better. Woo.

I was gonna say, if any sport makes it easy to buy a championship, it's definitely basketball.

Too small court + too low rims + too tall players + too athletic players + too much training = a really boring game.

But Sharpe was correct, the right players aren't interested in playing there.

As an owner, what else can you do? Your job is to supply the money so that you can field the best team possible.

Anyone else think the Clippers are cursed by karma? I'm not saying they threw games, but ownership in the 1980s realized they could make plenty of money cutting expenses and mooching off the rest of the league. A team still gets paid if people watch to see the other team.

Again, I'm not saying they threw any individual games, but they spent the better part of 30 years more focused on keeping salaries down than hiring the talent to win.

The 2010-2019 lakers couldn't buy a championship either.

While I agree with Mr. Sharpe, I am surprised he was able to stop fellating LeBron long enough to say that.

I'm sure that Steve Balmer is crying himself to sleep on a pile of cash every night over this withering condemnation.

It's more of the fact that the Clippers, though most everyone knows them as the LA Clippers...were originally from BUFFALO and then moved to SAN DIEGO.

You can take the teams from those places but you're not gonna win a title with 'em.

In fairness the Lakers aren't actually all that rich. Ballmer alone could buy and sell the Buss family plenty of times. The Lakers are basically everything that family has.

Boring and buying titles? Sounds more like baseball.
