They say the NBA is a league built on having a Superstar and that there only about 15 or so...

What if one of those players took a TREMENDOUS paycut in order to go to a competing team that was strapped for cash?

I don't mean a LeBron or Dwight "I'm living 15-30 million on the table" type thing. I mean that they're willing to play for 3-8 million a year instead of 19-22 million a year on a short-term(2 or 3 year) contract in hopes of getting a ring.

Is this even allowed by the NBA?
Role players seem to do it but what if a truly elite player did it?
What would you think of them?

The NFL kinda do something like this. Players frequently get restructured contracts to help bring in other FAs. Brady did it cuz he wanted the Pats to keep Welker but they still didn't resign him.

I think players would all flock to one team and create an even bigger super team but im all about players getting their money. Whats stopping them from doing now though???

Not a chance the NBPA allows this.

Don't think an elite player would do that, but Duncan and Dirk are taking paycuts to help their teams attract players there.
