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.
It'll suck for about a month. The first week is the worst.
I wonder why, too. He has size, puts up good stats and an efficient level, but seems to attract a ton of noise. I wonder if it's a marketability thing.
Great piece on Hinkie. Two of my favorite points: It wasn't necessarily Hinkie's inability to sell his process, but rather the agents/GMs fear of his success that undermined his ship Gross incompetence (e.g., the Kings organization) is acceptable, but taking "advantage" of the system is unacceptable to Commissioner Silver (i.e., the commish put a lot of pressure on the Sixers ownership group to bring in the Colangelos)
