    How many Raptors fans would have to be talked off the ledge today had Masai not sent him to Madison Avenue?

    One of the great conundrums, mysteries, paradoxes, ironies, inequities...........

    On this day when big man Bargnani exercised his opt in for 14-15 @ $11 million, surefire hall of famer and 5 time champ big man Tim Duncan exercised his opt-in for $10.5 million.

    I know the baseball & nhl pas' exercise that control (more so the mlb...because in part they have no cap). That is one large discount that Duncan is giving but he has made many millions already and he is obviously not playing for the money anymore but to have the team together.

    yeah, the question was more about the general change in tactics of superstars taking less money to play for winners, not specifically tim duncan, or team up because they get the endorsement deals. but average joe greg stiemsma isn't getting that money back and they hurt his ability to negotiate. i would think the little guys would use some leverage with the players union.

    to me the idea that some team has to pay eric bledsoe the max to lose while lebron, bosh, wade and melo can undercut the league rules to win is sickening.

    So, will Bargnani land another job in the NBA when his contract is up?

    Of course. He's a seven footer with unique big man skills. Somebody will opt to sign him.

    I live in Ontario but I may as well be from Missouri....so show me. Is the triangle the panacea for curing Bargs 3 pt. shot? Or improve his passing? Does the triangle improve a player's defense? Maybe Phil is thinking about allowing Melo & AB to just play in the offensive zone. I am starting to wonder about PJ. But maybe he's just trying to jack up AB's value.

    I hear Grunwald is in the running for the gm job in Memphis....maybe he'll trade for Bargs there.

    Lol it was a Dolan move, not a Grunwald one.

    I actually think Bargnani can work in the triangle offense. He's the ideal big man for that offense and he can practice his shots at certain spots based on the triangle. Defensively, even I'm better than him but it's not like Jackson was a defensive aficionado. Fisher might tell him to just contest shots or if you can't do that, simply get out of the way.
