    I just saw the ESPN headline "Derozan gets $40M" and I thought first: "that better be over 5 years" and then: "I'm kind of glad we didn't draft him..."

    Seriously, these contracts are crazy with guys expecting $10-$15M for being good players (but not even fringe all-stars).

    With all these ridiculous contracts being signed, I'm starting to like David Kahn.

    I guess we got lucky that we didn't have to pay right now? I mean idk what you're really trying to get at because we are eventually going to have to extend Rubio and that contract is going to be larger than some of the other deals we've seen in the last day or so.

    How do you not know what I am getting at? We have Rubio right now on the cheap, which will make it easier to sign Pekovic. Had Rubio come right after he got drafted, we are paying him over 10 mill a year next season. Of course we will have to pay him eventually, but that time comes in 3 years now, not 1...if you do the math, that is 2 extra years of financial flexibility for Taylor and Kahn.

    Yeah good point. I didn't really think about that.

    watching the OKC vs SAS game, Harlan threw out an interesting stat, which was that Kevin Martin and Dwight Howard are the only players in the league to average 18 points or more per game throughout their career, while only shooting 13 shots or less per game...

    which made me think "Kevin Love has to be on that list too..." so I looked it up, and Love misses that list, because he is a career 17.3 point per game guy...lame.

    What does it take to become an insider? A subscription?? If so, I'll pass.

    If they reference him being white......

    no comments on Shved's rookie report.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Alexey Shved Hollinger StatsStats

    Scouting report
    + Long combo guard who has developed an accurate long-range shot.
    + Fluid offensive player who can create off the dribble and find the open man.
    + Needs to add strength and improve defense. Good rebounder for size.

    Analysis
    Picture a right-handed Goran Dragic with Ricky Rubio's hair, and you have some idea of Shved. His translated Euroleague stats from last season are very encouraging -- 14.7 points, 5.7 boards and 7.2 assists per 40 minutes, with a PER of 13.15, and he shot a sizzling 33-of-67 on 3s. He backed that up with strong play in the Olympics for Russia and should add some size to what was a tiny Minnesota backcourt last season.

    Shved's translated numbers from the year before are poor but came in a very limited sample of minutes (86). Besides, the big question with him won't be production; it will be defense. If he shows he can be more than a speed bump on that end, he'll play, and he's still young enough to get better.
    Not to bad for Hollinger.
