The Brooklyn Nets are looking at potential suitors for Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving this offseason. However, the Nets were unable to get what they wanted for their prized assets. So far, this has raised questions about their exact evaluation and usefulness in teams. The main debate that has developed concerns the power players currently hold in the league.

On the herd with Colin Cowherd, the NBA analyst spoke about how player power is declining in the league. Franchises and teams strive to build superstars who don’t pack as much baggage. And you can’t blame them, as utility and bottom lines are more important to any franchise than fame – which will eventually follow as they build a successful team.

Kevin Durant is a two-time NBA champion and four-time scoring champion, making him an intriguing addition to any team. But he remains unsold on the market. Former rookie to season winner Kyrie Irving is also a megastar and talented guard but was forced to accept an option with the Nets after failing to land a suitable spot in May.

colin saidWhat I think is happening is we’re getting out of an eight, 10 year deal here, which I don’t think was good for basketball. There is no market for KD this morning, there is no market for Kyrie.”

Colin Cowherd spoke about how players like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Steph Curry are the kind of players that franchisees want to build around. Also, fans now search for “games” rather than “stars” when tuning in to NBA. He believes this direction of movement is good for the game.

cowherd added, “But that kind of chemistry that’s punctuating, egg-shell walking, extremely high maintenance, I think people in the league are going — I want Giannis, I want Steph, I want Dame, I want Chris Paul, I want Jimmy Butler. ”

Finally Colin said: “Butler has had his issues, but he shows up and works hard and demands it from his teammates. We focus on the kind of basketball you can hug and hug. I like the fulcrum of the NBA.”

The likes of Kevin Durant, LeBron James and others have been labeled as high-maintenance because of their constant desire to win. These elite players are chasing championships and need the franchise to pull in the same direction. Well, there has to be a balance between star and franchise power; Since not every single Mega Star can pull off miraculous wins for the team every night and keep him for a long period of time, Franchise must also provide him with a competitive team.

The 58-year-old analyst also talks about former MVP and scoring champion James Harden, who is ready for any package to play with the 76ers. His current position might be a bit skewed due to his performances last season. Had Harden played at the MVP level, there would be no question that he would accept anything less than a maximum contract extension.
