    Thread quality snob!:p. BimaThug is overrated!

    Seriously though... The best news here is the cap impact of Lin and Asik in the event of a trade-- a flat $8.37M with no poison pill for the receiving team. If true, this Is another reason why the contracts are much better for HOU than they are for NYK or CHI. I expect this loophole to be addressed in the next CBA, but in the meantime, I like it very much!

    Leslie is a businessman so let's hope he understand next offseason is when we need to make our moves, not this year! Thanks for this.

    Great read. These updates always make me feel so dumb, I but love them anyways.

    I don't think this should be overlooked:

    Ok - No more need for any new Threads for the next week - the info will either be wrong or repetitive Thanks Bima !!

    Do you think the DH12 move will be sooner than later? perhaps coinciding with D-Mo's availibility on August 5th ?

    It seems like the quiet lately on DH was apparently awaiting the results of the Rox offer sheets - But perhaps the Aug 5th date as well !! ??

    Thanks for a great article with actual facts and numbers instead of an article with regurgitated crap.

    Totally agree. I think it will be adressed too. Kind of like the Disabled Player Exception Morey took advantage of.
