Cap space is more effective than MLE because you have more money. Same as real life. Can't sign an NBA player to max contract if you don't have the money to do it. It is absolutely limited, that's the point.

Because it isn't that major, this was the first off season, and with contract lengths generally being 2 years or more, most player aren't available and most teams still have full money and close to full roster. Look at the rosters for next year and you'll notice that there is going to be a lot of teams with more than the MLE to spend.

I personally hate the idea of a firm 24/48 hour bidding process, you are basically screwed if you can't be there at the last second to make a bid. Dumb IMO.

Sure. Don't mind it (MLE) being limited. But .01 in a contract this size. He ought to have to outbid me by more than that.

Can we change the rules to just have anyone nominate a max of 2 guys regardless of who they belong too, but only one person with bird rights can be nominated per team.

You don't grasp the full concept. Normally the bids are done in private anytime over the first 24 hours, with the high bid winning. If there are two or more bids that are the same, or within a certain percentage, those managers get a second chance to bid in the second 24 hours, again secretly, with the high bid in the second period taking the player. No last second bidding should be involved (because that is certainly crap). Don't poo-poo an idea before you know what's involved though. ;-D I like the idea because it's a rigid schedule and you'll always know which guys are being auctioned on which days, so you'll never miss out on bidding for a player you want.

NO, now you can poo-poo to your heart's content. :-D There are other ways to manage it as non-silent too, if that's what people prefer. I'm certainly not a fan of last minute e-bay sniping though. :-t

The whole idea of silent doesn't really seem to be all that realistic. Seems that every GM knows what the offers are on players, heck all the fans know what is being offered. It's like how the Raptors got Turk, knowing what Portland was offering they went out and offered a little bit more.
