Several teams just resigned key players to multi year salaries worth $40m or more per year. Imagine owning a business where you pay an emoyee $40m.
Meanwhile Durant wants put of new jersey a year after signing a 4 year contract paying $49.5 m per year. New jersey will be lucky to be rid of his contract and get a good younger less expensive player in return.

Seriously, lucky? Do you not know how the NBA works?

Over half the league has already reached out to Brooklyn.

Wish I knew as much as you zen master. KD is 34 and has been getting injured too much.

I think both of those statements about KD are correct.

As for the salaries, no one is forcing the owners to agree to the contracts, and on the basis of revenue generated for the league, most starts in most professional leagues are worth it. The salaries only seem obscene until compared to league revenues.

You wouldn't want the owners to be taking advantage of their workers, now would you @PV ?

Lots of SM posts from people living at the centre of the universe speculating about KS going to the Raptors. Barnes should be untouchable in trade talks. Phil Jackson might be okay trading KD for Barnes.

Portland gives Lillard 61 million per year. Yes U. S. DOLLARS, NOT LOONIES.

would you rather pay him 61 million per season to show up, or KD 33 million per year to eat popcorn?

I haven't watched the NBA since Jordan left. Is this guy Gretzky good? tbh, I haven't even heard his name, but again, I completely don't follow basketball anymore

Latest rumour is that KD says he will only stay with the Nets if Nash and the GM are gone. Imagine paying a 35 year prone to injury $50 million a year and then you have to listen to him whine about the coach and GM.
