re: Let's talk about CP3 - NOLAbaby on 6/25/17 at 3:33 pm
Talking about the 5 year, $205 million dollar extension he, as acting NBAPA President put into play with the new CBA, so that he'd be able to sign it this summer. Not the $30 million for next year but the whole guaranteed contract. Look, if you're not playing 4th dimensional chess right now, you may...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
Let's talk about CP3 - NOLAbaby on 6/25/17 at 3:22 pm
Shocked that dude left $205 million on the table. There's no way he's able to recoup that money by the time he retires. With his injury history, I doubt he makes it past 35 (3 years) without losing a significant step. Should've locked that quan up. Plus, wherever he goes won't have the hook up like ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)

No one will care about this but acc. to Bill Simmon's interview with Steve a week ago, Kerr is spending this offseason traveling the country to meet with a number of the top back specialists across the US for treatment and advice. Now, there's a guy down here, a top back specialist some could say, n...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Salary Cap Clarity - NOLAbaby on 6/19/17 at 1:27 pm
I see what you're saying with the wait & it gets better approach, but it's still a roster spot for the next year. The Pels are incredibly unbalanced talent-wise front court to back court. With a limited DMC/AD window here, the play to make is right now so the cupboard can get stocked with a less shi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Salary Cap Clarity - NOLAbaby on 6/19/17 at 1:07 pm
Looking through the numbers, from what I can tell, after stretching Asik (NO REASON THIS SHOULDN'T HAPPEN) the Pels would be in the top 10 teams with the most salary cap space this summer, assuming it's stretched 7 years and relieves around $8 mill off the cap. Especially considering GSW is going to...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
