    Wow! I bet Ellis is kicking himself in the back side right now. He could have simply stayed in Milwaukee and made 40 Million over three years. He really took it in the throat on this one.

    He's still making 30 million, I think he will be fine.

    No, I think he's making 25 that could be 30 but that's not 40 and I doubt he believes it's fine. I know I wouldn't.

    I never said he believes it's fine.... but he will be more than fine with $25-$30 mil (minus taxes, agents fees, and all that good stuff).

    Ya, I don't think anyone's b team is making the playoffs in the NBA. About the only B teams in any sport that can do anything are team USA in basketball and Spain and Brazil's b teams in soccer

    He left some money on the table.
    But his Milw extension would have given him 35.8 mil for 3 years ( he wanted 40 for 4) vs the 30 in Dallas with no state tax and a lower agent fee.
    It's not as radical as it may seem on the surface.

    Also, the Devin Harris and Dallas decided to drop the handshake agreement they had. That frees up a little more room (maybe not enough though) for another center. Harris may still end up a Mav, but it would be later this summer.

    various:

    calderon--let's talk about where he rates at all-star game time. his assts to turnover ratio is much better than virtually everyone listed above... and he lead the league in 3pt FG %.

    bynum--bummer that he can't play but if the most he could get is 6m guaranteed, he's done.

    mavs--mavs are just signing best values they can get amongst the leftovers in free agency. if they get dalembert they'll have a better team then last year but far from elite.
    calderon/monta gives them the kidd/Jet look. obviously still without a center right now. they are basically going back to the 11 straight 50 wins model of asset mgmt.

    nets--they have accumulated the all ancient and overpaid team. lots of names, not sure how much talent is left with some of those guys.

    lakers--i've suggested they were in a bad way... perhaps now that becomes more apparent.

    rockets--not sure how people equate an 8 seed plus DH to being a title contender but better them than me trying to live up to that nonsensical hype.

    I think the Lakers are in great position for the future. I don't agree with the whole bad way idea. Doesn't hold water. They will have one down season and will begin to rebuild. That's how it is supposed to work in Pro Sports.

    I think it depends highly on this season, if they are decent again and just above .500 and a 7 or 8 seed, it's going to be rough for the lakers. The smart thing to do would be to trade Gasol and Nash for unprotected first round picks in 2014, bring Kobe back slowly, and get a great pick in this loaded class. Mediocrity this season will kill the lakers in the foreseeable future. I, as a spurs fan and laker hater, hope they stay the course they are on now.

    Wishful thinking, they will return to the top.

    So, Kirilenko signs for 3M in NJ to a Russian Billionaire owner? Convince me that a suitcase with about 6M didn't show up at his parents house in Russia.

    Perhaps you should worry about the Spurs choking more than leadership of L.A.

    oh ok, an insult and attempt to change the subject, a clear white flag from your part and an admittance that you have no rebuttal that the guy running your team now has the competence of tommy boy.

    The rebuilding will take time. The Kobe's of the world aren't availabe but every 10 years or so.
