You know, when you're not trolling for arguments, you can be very funny.

Rep, for what it's worth.

How are the T-Mutts going to sign Reggie Evans? They already spent their MLE on Mike James and whether or not they have the LLE at their disposal this year is irrelevant since Evans isn't going to sign for that sum.

How much is an undersized, ball grabbing, offensive deficient PF going for these days? I'd say the LLE is right up his alley unless it is the Nuggs we are talking about. They would probably offer a contract of around 6 years 42 million.

Actually, his offensive deficiencies (odd as it may sound) are a part of what's making him attractive to teams. The reason being that he doesn't demand any shots, which works out well for a team that's already chock full of offensive options (like Minnesota with Garnett, James & Davis). His role is rebounding and he's damn good at it. He's also a serial flopper, so he'll buy a few calls along the way.

The last rumor is that he was looking for a good portion of someone's MLE, so he's likely commanding a salary in the $4.5 million range. Hell, if Greg Buckner can get someone's MLE, I can see it happening for someone like Evans.

Buck got way less than the MLE...I could have sworn I read somewhere that he signed for 5 years 19 million.

I'll have to see the figures on it, but the original report was that he got about $5 million per season over the first three years of the deal and that they were the guaranteed years of the contract (with the remaining two years still being negotiated at the time).

By the way, how's this look to you?

It is painfully obvious that he isn't screaming for joy in that picture. How fitting. He is probably thinking, "they muthaf'ing traded me to the Nuggets. I look like I belong in the WNBA with this silky satin circus clown outfit I got on."

He's probably screaming, "I'm going back to the playoffs, biatch!!"

The new Melo's came out. When asked about the color design, Nike CEO Knight commented "Carmelo was steadfast in demanding the shoes match his Nugget's uniform."

Don't be bitter just because your team is out of the Iverson sweepstakes. You've still got Wally.....and your snazzy green uniforms.

Uh, I believe the Kansas City Chief smack thread is that way. Considering we don't have any red in our uniform at all.

Reminds me of a gamemaster that recently passed away who became famous for the words "Das wäre ihr Preis gewesen!" (This is what your prize would´ve been)

It's not my work. Someone on another board put it together, so I can't take credit for it.

From the FWST:
...the Mavericks regrouped quickly Wednesday, agreeing to a four-year contract for approximately $10 million with Denver Nuggets free-agent swingman Greg Buckner.

The contract, which will be signed today, is worth a little more than $3 million per year, with the fourth season partially guaranteed.


Buckner, like Terry, gave the hometown discount.

Yeah, if you like your team to dress in the satin sheets of a cheap sex motel pulled right off of the vibrating bed!

Considering your team wore hefty bags two years ago in a game, you shouldn't be talking. Besides, I thought you were done with the NBA forever.

I should have known you'd want to comment on jerseys. After all, you are the jersey expert, being as how it was a massive jersey conspiracy that cost the Mavericks the title.

Didn't he write a manifesto detailing the reasons why he quit the NBA? I think the ending was, "I am through with the NBA. The league has lost it's innocence. While Dirk Nowitski will always hold a special, special place in my heart, I must bid fair well to my sweetheart. It is a breakup of epic proportions. He was my daddy, and I was his baby. We laughed together, wept together, and yes, we held each other. It was special. Dirk, you always said I couldn't quit you; I always believed that too. But with tears in my eyes, I must walk away. I must....walk....away..."

Or something to that effect.
