That is poor. You can just smell the entitlement.

I think Calipari took it harder than he did.

Rose was 100% 6 months ago.

Thats actually a much bigger signing than the media/league will think it is. MWP is not washed up and he brings a lot in intangibles to the game that no one else on the Knicks really has and he solidifies an already solid bench.

The East is going to be a bloodbath this year.

All this non-stop Howard nonsense has me thinking that Houston would have been a better team if they got Josh Smith instead of Howard. Their weaknesses are PF and the bench. Smith's skill sets are perfect for that run and gun offense, he can score inside or outside and he can handle the ball and be a facilitator. Lin/Harden/Parsons/Smith/Asik is a better starting five than their current lineup with Howard, in my opinion. And Smith was cheaper. And Howard has pretty much shown you how he will act if he is not the number 1 option/face of team. And then there is his free throw shooting, there is no need to double him late in a game, just foul him.

I'm curious what happened to the auction though? I thought that if Artest decides to stay in the NBA, teams (under teh salary cap iirc) could bid at him and he can only sign with whatever team he wants if there were no bids?

I think the answer is in your question. He basically said he will retire before playing for anyone else. I guess teams could have been a prick and put a gun to his head and make him choose between giving up the $7mln the Lakers owe him or playing in Milwaukee or something but it looks like they respected his wishes because there are a lot of teams that could use him and most of those teams have more money than the Knicks. I think a bunch of collusion goes on in the league anyway so maybe the Knicks will be forced to "pay" for him somehow down the road.

Man this is business, if I were in the East, I'd fuck up that deal if it means making the Knicks a better contender. I mean the Knicks are supposedly only going to sign him for $1.6mil.

The deal is worth approximately $1.6 million per season with a player option for Year 2, the source said, adding that the Knicks used the remainder of their mini-midlevel exception to sign the former Laker.

Who knows what really goes on. I mean, look at the AK47 deal, that deal makes this one look overpriced. There are enough teams that can use MWP and that have more than $2mln a year to throw at him (which he is obviously worth) so you would think that he would have gotten a bid but here we are......

AK47 deal is just shady, there really is nothing they can do if he wants to sign with the Nets for a lot less money.

I'm just curious if Artest bidding was already over before he agreed with the Knicks or if it got bypassed for some reason.

This has become an Artest love fest suddenly. That the guy is a major dickhead so if he was picked up by a team he didn't want to play for he's shit that locker room up.

I think that explains it better than anything else. Sure, lots of teams have 2m to spend on him but they were all smart enough to stay away.

I was hesitant with MWP coming to the Lakers but after seeing how he has been int he first year, I really wouldn't mind him in the team at all even to finish his cotnract there. He has been decent to good player and great at times. Still questionable 3 point shots at times but dude is instant energy and an asset. Still a headcase but Kobe managed to maintain him on the sane side of things. He was a big factor to that championship year. He hasn't had much breakdown while in LA, can't even remember a major one off the top of my head right now.
