What do you mean? Signings and trades can continue until after the season and deadline respectively. Signings cannot resume after the season ends until the end of the next moratorium, but trades can resume when a team is eliminated from post-season play.

There are some various restrictions on exceptions, playoff eligibility, guarantees, etc. but that is all specific rather than general.

Oh I see I thought It was like you know when before the play-offs begin teams have to submit their final line-up i thought it's the same before the training camp starts and then after all of those pre-season stuff and the season starts they can deal again... thanks for the info

Teams can only have 15 players on their roster during the season. During the preseason/training camp period they can have as many as they want. But they can sign players at will still and many teams will cut down to 14 for this very purpose.

After a player signs a contract, where do teams keep the original copy of the contract? In a big safe somewhere? In a bank?

The owner keeps it in his crotch, in the summer he first bends over to smell it & then gives it to the players to smell & once the season starts it's put back.

Also I am kinda curious to know if one can find the average number of years a player is likely to suffer a season ending injury if you include all the players within the last 15 years or so.

What's the definition of "season ending injury"? A Season ending injury could be a lower back strain in the last week of the regular season if the player's team don't make it to the playoffs...

Yeah I know it is hard to distinguish that...cannot be answered accurately. Well, the question is out there, if someone comes up with something.

12-20 would be my guess, this year was a higher number obviously because of the lockout.

lol as if the original 'original' is really that important. Original copies are given to both sides or to the people that matter (owner, player, GM, player representatives, lawyers, capologist, etc.) If the original 'original' contract gets lost the other party still has an original copy which is still acceptable afaik.

Nope, if you eat the original contract it's no longer valid. Everybody knows that.

Does the altitude really affect how players play in Denver, and if so, how?

Hollinger examined it in his first book and found basically no effect on visiting teams. The Jazz are the next highest elevation team and and showed no effect either. Although he did study only one season of data and casually.

My knowledge is limited because I only became a hardcore NBA fan like four years ago and I don't really have the resources, but T-Mac maybe? Six teams (19.6 PPG).

Moses, Dantley, and McAdoo all played for seven teams unless I miscounted.

There's a few guys at six. Shaq most notably.

As for the best of that lot, my vote would go to Moses.

Receives pass on air, lands on his feet, keeps left foot steady as he turns with his right leg counter-clockwise, jumps and shoots. No travel.
