How many max contract guys do you think are in the NBA right now?
5/6/2010 4:42 PM
that was in reference to the old JJ thread that went on for months as to whether he would earn/deserved his old contract when he got it - i was the ONLY pro-JJ person, some were on the fence, others angrily anti-JJ

5 year contract numbers

GS 376 of 410 - averaged 21.7/4.4/5.5 - 47.9 from 2, 36.9 from 3, 80.5 from the line - at an average of 13 mil a season

4 AS games, last 3 years in the PS

JJ turns 29 next month - not even sure he deserves a max contract (5 yrs - 29,30,31,32,33 - the last 2 years could be very pedestrian)

the Hawks did it right for once - they signed a guy clearly on the uptick - i actually hope they don't offer him the max

right now - i would say there are probably 20 or so max guys - some for what they have done and will continue to do, others for what they will do

I for one don't think he's a max player. My guess is that someone will pay him that - the Hawks or Knicks seem most likely - and then start to regret it in 2-3 seasons.

I see what you did there.

I was totally on your side with respect to the contract.

I just thought it was dumb that the Hawks decided to ship over Diaw and a 1st rounder when the Suns clearly had no intent of matching.

Didn't he get a max deal last time? 5 for 70 or whatever it was? Also, my argument was that he got the contract that he did 5 years ago because he was the best/top 2 or 3 of a very weak FA class.

FWIW, I too thought you were referencing Redick lol.

Yes I wonder how much the Knicks are going to pay for him

Call me cheap but unless you think a guy is going to be the best player on a championship team over the duration of the contract, you don't need to be paying him max money.

in other words at a time like last night a max deal player might have bothered to show up - if JJ were Melo or Kevin Durant would 19pts on 35% shooting in a loss in a key game be anything but a huge flaming disappointment? he took like 2 shots in the 4th quarter as the Hawks gave up their lead and the Magic pulled away. You think that's worth the max?
