Is the NBA’s new collective bargaining agreement the end of superteams in the league?

In response to teams such as the Boston Celtics spending heavily on their rosters to contend for NBA titles, the league agreed to a new, highly punitive collective bargaining agreement to replace the CBA the Association operated under for the last seven seasons.

As a result, it will be exceptionally difficult for teams to keep their rosters together without incurring exceptionally steep financial and team-building penalties. Could this spell the end of so-called super teams in the league? There is also the issue of the middle class of NBA players being squeezed out in the new CBA, and several other issues of note.

To talk them over, the hosts of the Athletic “NBA Show” podcast convened on a recent episode.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say about the impact of the new CBA on NBA superteams and more.
