    Yo Bima!!


    This is what I'm talking about! If we lost Gogi over $500k per, that is totally ridiculous. He was worth every nickel of $9 million per on this team. Now we are definitely on a treadmill. I think our chances of getting Dwight just went out the window too. At the very least it is pointless to get him. Because we aren't going to be able to field a championship contender at this point.

    We should've given him $45 mil over 5 years and gone on to better things. Absolutely totally ridiculous nickel and diming guys like this. We weren't in a position to do that with Goran.

    I'm absolutely sick right now. Probably will be gone for a few days. Absolutely sick!

    As ESPN reported, Goran Dragic agreed to a 4 year, $34M deal with the Suns. Rockets decided that was "too rich" and let him go, source says.

    FU, Dragic. I hope you break a leg during the pre-season.

    And FU, Morey. Way to keep things under control.

    Look Dragic is a very good point guard, but he isn't worth that money at all. You wonder how do many teams end up with bad contracts? That's how.

    He will be their starting point guard, but he won't produce the same numbers as he did here...

    We still have Lowry, who is better then dragic by FAR.
    He's a professional he will get over his relationship problems with McHale, and he will be a top 10 pg next year.

    No worries..

    Well, that's why we drafted the Rolls Royce.

    Well... seems money was the issue. HOU found it "too rich" so it seems that Dragic at least came back to HOU and gave them an opportunity to match and it was HOU's decison to "let him go."

    Im seriously starting to lose faith in this team. It took a lot. I really hope we get some good news soon.....I never thought we would let dragic and lee go and not have anything to show for it. Im running out of players that I even want to watch.

    Suns weren't cheap and upped Morey's 32" dynex with the 47".
