idnfl - I think there is something to a franchise "taking care" of its stars, as evidenced by the Lake Show and Kobe's last contract. That builds goodwill toward the brand, and ultimately may help to drive consumer loyalty. I just saw snoop dog give Kobe a Lakers boat ride as a retirement gift. That's the sort of thing that is funny but endearing and displays equity. Teams are really only an idea. I think Miami could have done better. Wade has a chance for a good...
Cool post Valedictorian. Funnily enough, I'm wearing that classic DH cardigan now. The cashmere and subtle, yet elegant cut has made it a go-to. Fortunately, KVA has not made it boxy or "elegant-sporty," which I think is his thing.
Duncan did look like an old man during the playoffs. He had an incredible career, no reason to keep pushing the envelope especially with an aging team. What's he going to do come off the bench with Aldridge and Gasol holding down the paint?
Does GSW not go over the salary cap? Wasn't Cleveland like double the cap this past year?
I think every player has been panned this offseason with the exception of KD.
Yes, doesn't make a ton of sense. His biggest quality now is being a good person and a leader, which would pay dividends on a young team such as the Sixers but it's not as though the Warriors are bereft on goodness.RE: the Barnes query before, interesting thoughts and it seems as though there is a true divide.Anyway, I'm unsure why everyone's freaking out so much about these contracts (not meaning here, but on the Twitter-verse etc), as everyone knew there'd be huge...
What is it with Harrison Barnes? Dallas is offering him max money. I've only witnessed a small sample size of his games, which is mostly a few hype games super early on, and then these disappointing finals vs. the Cavs. When I took at his stats, they seem average for a 24-year old starting NBA player, and his PER (12) does not stand out. Is there something I'm missing, potential still on the radar, a defensive specialist?
Not to just ape the Twitter-scape, but I found it interesting that Whiteside apparently has a clause in his contract where he'd accept slightly less than max if KD comes to Miami. I haven't heard of that before, but sounds interesting.
I'm not following how the Heat disrespecting Wade. He's 34, and there's clearly a precedent toward drawbacks in maxing out aging superstars. They're probably making a serious run at maxing out KD instead, selling him on Whiteside, Riley's leadership, Spol's LT credibility, the location (can't think of a better place post OKC), and Bosh's potential return. This last point seems as much a pro as a con. I'm unclear how the insurance/cap impact would work if he does retire...
For perspective, people on these types of threads are a little higher end than Diesel and Dsquared, so the idea of having clothes tailored is only natural. That's part of the process, and dare I say art of style and fashion.
