He wasn't afraid to spend over the cap...

We all knew we had to pay DMC,

We all know Sap is 30 and looking for security.

I love Millsap....He was a big part of their success.

However... he may as well been invisible in the playoffs.

DMC was the best player on this team in the playoffs on both sides.

Feel free to disagree with me... but I would have paid DMC and made Sap a decent deal. He doesn't bite and goes to Orlando... so be it... At least we would still have our best defensive player.

We know this team can win in the regular season. I want players that can perform

in the playoffs.

Long story short...I think they got it wrong with this one.

He got torched vs. Lebron.. but so does everyone else...

You can only pay over the cap if you have bird rights.

In essence you can sign "not your players" up to the cap, and then spend over the cap to sign you bird rights players.

We didn't have full bird rights on either guys. Once Paul signed for more than 16 million, his bird rights went out the window,therefore he counts as legit cap space.

The only way we could have signed them both was if they took HUGE pay cuts and signed for their early bird price, which was never gonna happen.

The two year deals reallllyyyy fuxked us over.

It was genius at the time they were signed.

Yep...

All that sense of "team" bs went right out the window as soon as FA kicked in.

I have a feeling we'll be seeing DMC in the playoffs next year.

DMC is going from the highest assist team to the 3rd lowest. 80% of all of DMC's points came off of an assist.

I'd wager he doesn't have near the season in Toronto he just had here.

Dude, just say that extra 10 mil was too tough to pass up.

Hawks offered you 4/50.

Exactly no need to kick some dirt in on your way out the door. (Also kind of makes him look full of sh^t after all that "we a family" spiel)

I agree. As soon as that mofo has to put the ball on the floor to create his shot he will look like the DeMarre Carroll of Utah fame.
