    A) He's not an all-star and he's had 1 year of close to all-star numbers... in a contract year
    B) Don't you find it interesting that he came into this season in the best shape of his career, and a whole new attitude

    Mike Conley, Jeff Teague are comparable players who are payed around 8-9M

    Rondo and Parker ar 12-13M

    9-10M is where Lowry should be

    Would have whole heartedly agreed that this is where he fit looking at salary compares to that group. Wrote about it. Howver the market has changed and right now he looks to be able to get in the 12M range. Term to be determined. If the cap goes up this may look like a deal in a couple of years. If it stays where it is you will see a shift towards a few guys with a lot of money and the rest with not so much. Look for teams with a couple of stars and the rest will rookie wage scale types.

    Gortat just agreed to 5 years/60 mill with wiz. Now there's a bad deal.

    Does this affect Lowry? Do the heat go after him harder?

    Gortat getting an extension in Washington. That takes him out of the running for Heat money. Ruh roh

    Free agent Pau Gasol had a phone conversation with Miami president Pat Riley today, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
    - Adrian Wojnarowski @WojYahooNBA 9s

    Sounds like Pat Reilly is in a small room with no window and a fan just calling anyone he can think of. THis smacks of desperation.

    Don't underestimate Riley's ability to get his oily hands into a free agent's plans. Pat Riley with cap space is just as scary as the Lakers with cap space

    the offseason is for NOT paying attention to this shit.... who cares.

    if KL wants to go, let um go, who cares....its more cash to get a guy that wants to be here.

    and rumours......ugh, fuck man, stop getting riled about every thing you read.

    This is stupid, Kyle Lowry will resign with the Raptors book it! I mean, it has to be done this way, the Raptors will have to lock down this contract before the Rockets or the Heat mull him over then it's gameover.

    Yup, he knows that he needs to do SOMETHING to get Lebron to stay. Poor guy is clearly attending to options 'X' 'Y' and 'Z'

    Matt Moore over at CBS sports is writing what we all have thinking and saying. That the super friends really aren't going to be playing for free.

    This is just going to be as much fun to watch as a Rob Ford outing at a wine tour.

    Lebron has put these guys in a very uncomfortable position. He wants it all. He wants the max for a short term 2 years and then leaves the other friends to have to sign longer term deals to just get what they are owed back. (4 year deals at 15 each). Lebron can also walk and leave them holding the bag. Lebrons a bag allright a douche bag. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of guys .

    This is likely Kyles lone run at this kind of press coverage and "me time" in the press while in free agency. He loves the spotlight and its going to be on him for a few more days.

    OR.. he is coping up with us in screwing up Miami.

    Masai might have told him to mingle with Heat's idea for a couple of weeks just so that the Heat miss out on every other free agents. Then Kyle flips the switch last min and be like "FUCK YOU PAT" #WeTheNorth



    EDIT: Heat already missed out on Livingston and Gortat

    He's a lynchpin... other guys who may sign for midlevel and mini mid level are probably waiting for Lowry to make up his mind

    I feel weird defending Lebron, but he has been criminally underpaid (in terms of salary) for the past four years. He's the best player in the league, and if there was no salary cap, teams would be throwing $40M a year at him.

    The last year must have be a wake-up call for him, realizing how much he was actually carrying his team. Without Lebron, an injured Wade and Bosh don't make it past the second round. Simple as that.
