    I'd be interested in him as a player-coach. Maybe Ferntits would see this as good marketing?

    I can guarantee John Wall will not be doing that.

    Tilfart traded CP3 to get out of his contract...and ended up getting WORSE contracts in exchange, while giving up picks for multiple years.

    Dumb dumb dumb

    Dennis Schroder turned down a 84 million Lakers extension; was seeking 100 mil. In playoffs, he laid a goose egg.

    CP3 value is still high; despite the shoulder situation. He's betting on himself. If Suns make it further the gamble may pay off, otherwise, may turn into a Schroder (meh), Dipo (disappointing), or Cousins (yikes).

    Clippers needs a real point guard, imagine going back there. Suns just might pay what CP3's seeking.

    Why didn't Tilman stay out of it when Morey told Harden he couldn't make it happen, and Harden was okay with it.

    He wants 3 years / $100 million according to that article, so it's not like he's doing this as an act of kindness.

    He traded him because Harden didn't want him here. The spoiled superstar got his way. Thank Daryl Morey

    With his injury history, giving him 160M at age 32 was bad enough, giving him 100M when he is 36 is pure lunacy.

    2 all star games and 2 all nba team appearances since Tilman decided to dump him for worse players on even worse deals.

    LMAO
