Navarro is sort of a douche too. Couldn't have happened to a better person

Is he? I know how awful this sounds, but I automatically assume more European players are douches. I think it's their accents. I'm glad to hear one actually is!

just his behavior in the 2008 final pissed me off. and then he tried ignoring US journalists after the game saying he doesn't speak English well, then some NBA reporter was like, you're English was perfect 3 months ago in Memphis.

I agree Felton will have a better year...but, mostly cause he will be passing to teammates with talent. The 3rd highest paid player on the Rockets this year is Omar Asik.

Also, the Rockets are SO fucked when 2014 hits, $30mil to Lin and Asik alone

not in terms of the cap... its 8.3mil or whatever spread evenly in regards to the cap hit

I don't think it works like that. Houston is paying 8 or 9 mil a year. Not 5,5,15 that. NY would have been forced to. It was a loophole in the CBA. 8.5 mil is still a lot for those guys but not gonna significantly rise in the 3rd year for them

Gotcha, that is a very silly provision. I'd basically offer a deal with $25mil in the final year and min salaries in year 1 and 2 just to fuck over every team via offer sheet. Morey just basically wrote the book on why teams can't let their players get to RFA. Cause it'll cost the Rockets nothing to pay him, but it would have cost the Knicks $40+ mil in luxury tax payments to take on that Lin deal

should be an easier path for the USA to the finals without having to go against the Brazilian bigs.
