The New TV Deal and the New CBA
Arturo wrote a piece about how the increased TV revenue from the next deal could have large implications for current "bad" contracts. There was a great Sloan talk on this, which was apparently not recorded!
Of course, signing players with "replacable skill sets" to eat up your cap space and minutes is still not wise.
"You can't trade Wiggins for Love, because someday he might be as good as Love!" - Patrick
Notice that Klay and Wiggins are both, oddly, more valuable on the roster than they were as nebulous draft picks. Sunk cost anyone?
By the way, if Love plays next to Bron he'll probably improve because Bron passes!
LeBron returns to Cleveland. Oh yeah, it cost Dwyane Wade $11.5 million.
Call us Quixotic, but we'll be betting the under on Indiana again this year.
We hit a lot of free agents, so tune in to listen. Also, we rant about Kevin Love even more!
We loved Lance Stephenson, and every team but Charlotte royally messed this one up.
Dean Oliver (@DeanO_ESPN). I had accidently left his book of my background shelf for the first half of the show. Sorry Dean!
Robbie, who commented back in February that the Lakers would overpay Nick Young.
Zachary Bennett (@ZacharyBD)- the "light at the end of the tunnel" for T-Wolves fans.
Dave Berri (@wagesofwins), for reasons I'm not sure Dave would agree with.
Enjoy the show, see you next week!
