  • Bullshit like this is why I railed against the bullshit pulled by LeBron/the Heat, this buddy buddy stuff is a slippery slope and only going to increase due to the way kids start forming cliques early in high school at the AAU level.

    The simple fix to this is to do away with max contracts.

      Why even bother anymore?
      I don't follow the NBA that closely anymore, but that is fucking insane.

        It was their countermove to Aron Baynes resigning. Game on.

        • Suck it LeBron. That's what you get for going to the Lakers instead of the best basketball move.

          LeBron will never win another title, he'll never be reasonably regarded as the GOAT, and hell he won't even be the greatest Laker of all time. If you play for the Lakers and don't win a championship you're an afterthought.

          Have fun with Hollywood or whatever, though. Ass.

            Yea and if anybody tries to argue that he should be considered the GOAT because he'd have more titles if it weren't for an all-time team like the Warriors, well, he's the one that started the precedent for Durant jumping there, for Cousins to take 25% of the pay to jump there for a year.

            A precedent that he started so that he could finally win a ring of course.

            He's reaping what he sowed.

            • Word is no one else even bothered to make much of an offer to Cousins. The Pelicans didn't offer him anything. If that's the case I can't fault Cousins or the Warriors. This is on the other 29 teams.

                It speaks to just how crazy Cousins is.

                  I'm not convinced that's entirely true. I thought I saw the Lakers offered $18m. But if that's long term he probably would rather bet on himself with a one year deal and go back into free agency next year looking for a max long term deal.

                    • I don’t understand the fury over a free agent choosing which team he wants to go to. I thought players wanting a championship and taking less money for it is admirable. Conversely, many bitch and whine about how sinfully greedy players are when they leave for the highest bid.

                      Should top engineers, lawyers, doctors and scientists be prevented from joining Apple, Samsung, Google or whatever industry leader?

                      Free market, right? Deion Sanders to the Cowboys?

                          • OKC will be getting rid of Melo this summer.

                            This moves means more defense, athleticism, and versatility for OKC's starting lineup.

                            I have to admit I actually had high hopes for him when he arrived in OKC last summer. Guess I should have paid more attention to the Knicks the last few years. I could live with Melo's long list of deficiencies if he were still a good shooter but dude was mostly garbage during the 2nd half of the season....and even worse in the playoffs. I assume that was due to him wearing down.

                            I'm just glad we're not going to try to squeeze one more year out a player who is clearly washed up.
