Why do Some Argue Against Skill Based MM?

Now that we've had a long discussion, let's go back to the original question, and I'll try to sum up some of the pro-random arguments against SBMM, as well as I can, in this one post. If I missed an argument against SBMM, it wasn't intentional. There's a large number of them, and I haven't read every post. Let's start with an example to put things into perspective. Imagine that WOT and a few dozen people (let's call them the Pro-Randoms) are in charge of the National Basketball Association (NBA). [removed a bunch of irrelevant stuff that I didn't bother to read] In light of this example, have any Pro-Randoms' arguments against SBMM convinced us that SBMM would be worse than Random*MM? Should the NBA use the Pro-Randoms' Random MM* system to bring all of these improvements to their games?
DeviouslyCursed: What the SBMM proponents don't want you to know if the NBA implemented a actual SBMM system: The 96 championship Chicago Bulls, when they played games in the 1997 season, would have Scottie Pippen forced onto the opposing team every game in exchange for a bench warmer from the opposing team. The Bulls were clearly too good, and this would ensure more even matches. THAT IS SBMM! Unless you want to argue that makes a good system, shut the hell up about the NBA and any other professional sports system!
