    These last two games don’t make Devin Bookers numbers look very impressive.
    Like, someone has to score on this trash heap of a team

    The thing is after last season they had to pay him, they were gonna be over the cap even if they let him walk.

    It’s weird seeing Mike, Chris, and James smiling and talking to each other on the bench during this.....

    I wonder if cp3 foresaw the clippers not offering him that money so he got out a year early

    And $106 million for only three the following season! Yes, someone would've given what remains of Paul's body a ton of money (though not the supermax) if Houston hadn't, but I'm glad it was them. Watching the Rockets crash and burn is one of my favorite storylines this season.

    All of these insanely bad (super) max contracts are going to cause a lockout soon, aren't they?

    This bad year is worth it only if Morey keeps the roster as is by not trading future assets, and finally lands a high lottery pick.. trying to fight for an 8th seed would be a bad idea.

    It’s a tough spot to be roster wise so it’ll be interesting how it’s navigated

    I wouldn't be surprised. They have helped teams retain their stars, as they were conceived to do, but they're also going to severely handicap those teams' ability to build around those stars. I wonder if other teams will be hesitant to offer them in coming years?
