    The bigger contracts are also necessary for Masai to complete bigger trades. He needs to match salary with somewhat good value so all these young guys being slightly overpaid isn’t a terrible thing.
    What an indictment of the NBA. You need overpriced contract to make trades

      I wonder how many other fans of how many other teams (20? 25?) would love to have a GM who "constantly seems to fuck up" like Masai does.

      Raptor fandom is special... or at least certain members of it.

      I guess if the Raptors make it to the NBA finals, and then lose, we can put it down to Masai constantly overpaying role players.

      And all this in the first year of the Raptors existence in which quality veterans are excited about coming to Toronto, are naming Toronto as a desired destination and are arranging waiver details so they can get there.
      Oh come off it. I'm a huge Masai fan. I said "constantly seems to fuck up and overpay his role players" which he does and has done here and in Denver. It's one flaw out of a whole lot of good shit the guy does.

          Glad to hear it. I'll only note that it doesn't seem to have hurt the team too much. Or Masai is great at landing on his feet.

            C'mon, Puff. Questioning one's fandom on a fan board is like playing the race card. A bit too quick on the draw on this discussion as there was actually some useful insight that cropped up. No bigger fan of Masai on this board than yours truly, but even The Masaiah is not above criticism or at least some mild post-game analysis for some of the moves he's made. You took that to Defcon 5, lol.

                • LOL, that photoshopped JV jersey with 90% of the letters scratched out proved to be accurate.

                    You may think it's like playing the race card. Others don't. Sometimes the Dunning-Krugerisms need to be called out.
                    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

                        If the Raps win the title this year with Lin being a big part of it then sure.

                          It will be the first ever double jersey retirement when Lin hits a big 3 in the finals. The jersey will read vaLancuINas with the LIN in black the rest in white

                          • From the perspective of TOR re: Jeremy Lin. The PG will clear waivers at 5PM on Wednesday just in time for their game @ WAS. TOR can hold off until after the break (save $170K towards the tax) or use him on Wed. Would think Lin on the court has more value than $170K in savings.
                            Sure
