I think a lot of people would agree that the current guidelines on fairness in trades are lax. However, on the flipside, league revenue since last year has gone up, so we might not see a major revamp in these policies. We have to remember that even if a team, i.e. Air21 or Barako Bull do not perform well in the conference and lose on potentially important brand advertisement, the owners still benefit from revenue from the league.

1.) Never bite the hand that feeds you
2.) Don't shit in your own backyard
