    Name Ďem. Also, name instances like Iguodala last year, KD talking about it and this Klay situation where thatís a huge consideration.

    Stop trolling, tough guy.

    Yup. It's g State's way of saying to KD to put his money where his mouth is after he came out recently with saying that Warriors would be taking advantage of him if he took another pay cut. Puts the onus on KD rather than the FO in extending Klay

    either Draymond or Durant have Google commercials. The proof is in the pudding

    For a player like him, prolly best to takethe kd route and ensure success at all costs, the plebeians will not know the difference

    Donít hear anyone say ďIím going to the Clippers so Balmer can hook me up with an $80 million investment guys.Ē Wait, I thought the Kingís owner was.....somebody totally different. Doesnít matter, what they seem to be doing is pretty clear cut over everything else.


    Remember when Cuban got in hot water because he let Rodman stay in his guest house? My have times have changed.

    Outside of the sheer amount of venture investments that they are privy to. Draymond has YouTube/ google endorsements and Durant also has Apple commercials. Not sure any other nba franchise can offer that kind of tech access as apart of a business model.

    Y'all talking discount, lol...he's set to make almost 25 million per season. 121 divided by 5 is 24.2, not including endorsement deals he already has. Father probably has taught him to balance money well from what I last heard.

    California has to pay some of the highest taxes of any state, which has always been a huge disadvantage to signing players (at least it should be according to posters on PSD). This is just evening the game a bit.

    5/121 is a great deal for the warriors. He could get a lot more than that in free agency. For that kind of deal, he should receive a NTC and opt outs after year 3 or so.

    As a Laker fan he was very frustrating at times especially against teams like the Pistons
    Klay is really driven, but it's all pointed inward. His biggest issue is that if he's struggling he gets mad at himself.

    The other thing that I think will be interesting is to see how the NBAPA reacts to it.... they don't like guys signing for less than their value.
    If Klay makes an all-nba team he'll be eligible for a super max, which means he'd potentially be leaving as much as $70M on the table.

    My favorite part is that if the Warriors can somehow get under the tax threshold for 1 minute in 2019-2020 they can make it to the end of Curry's contract without paying the repeater tax.

    Thatís kind of ********, though. Taxes are not unique to the nba.
