re: NBA Free Agency Thread: Day 21 - ZTiger87
[quote]If you don't trade for Love, you could end up having 4 stars if Wiggins becomes Pippen and you sign a big FA in the offseason.[/quote] If they got rid of everyone but Lebron, Kyrie and Wiggins and didn't take any salary back, they could have around $19m in cap space. ...

re: Interesting Story on Picking QB First - ZTiger87
These days there are a ton of QBs that can get you a pretty solid performance. On the other hand, drafting Rice, Foster, Martin, etc. didn't exactly work out for people last year either. In the end, I think it still comes down to getting solid production out of your RBs. That doesn't mean you hav...

[quote]Per @espnsteinline, Dirks deal w/ Mavs pays him $8.33 million this year while Parsons will make $15.33 million this year. [/quote] This is the best reason I've heard as to why it's ok for the Mavs to overpay Parsons. Basically, Dirk and Monta are getting paid way less then they should ...

re: To hell with the trade, sign Love in 2015 and keep Wiggins! - ZTiger87
[quote]Irving and LeBron will gobble up $43M, but the cap will likely be north of $68M for 2015-2016[/quote] You add Wiggins and 8 cap holds and you're at $52m. With just those 3 guys they already don't have enough to offer him a max unless it is a sign and trade. ...

[quote]Lin was great on offense at times, but he also was a huge liability against PGs with athleticism.[/quote] Lin gets a lot of shite for his D but he really isn't bad.
