    Despite being a league with a salary cap, big market teams and small market teams simply live in different worlds. They aren't attracting another superstar to Milwaukee, they're lucky if they keep Giannis much longer.

    Certainly an overpay for him , but he is a great player and they have to keep hold of what window they have.

    Giannis just signed an extension. However they probably still have no chance against the nets.

    So did Harden.

    Contracts mean nothing for superstars, they force their way out whenever they feel like.

    FWIW and iirc, on Redick's podcast, Durant said the best defender he's played against is Jrue Holiday, and Redick didn't disagree. For all this talk about DPoY being a revolving door of Draymond / Gobert / Giannis, maybe stats aren't everything when it comes to who should be paid the big bucks.

    On the surface, Holiday's stats don't scream "max!" or even "near max!" In addition to his defense, he's probably a great locker room guy, too.

    30/120 seems like it would have been more than really good for him. 40 mill under today's cap should be reserved for the top 20 guys (IMO). Jrue's more like a top 40/50 guy

    Jrue is having a career year, but he's 30 and has milage. If he falls to his means and ages as expected, his contract is going to be very rough in the last 2 season (45 per at 33/34).

    Jrue is having the best year of his career and the Bucks couldn’t afford to lose him after giving up so much to get him...Jrue had all the leverage

    That is true. MIL is probably hoping Holiday ages gracefully like Lowry and CP3, and less like Rondo or even Wall (even though Wall is only 30).

    Giannis will always have James Harden Nightmares.

    Giannis picking on Harden as a Bully.

    Giannis will have a Taste of his own Medicine.

    An NBA contract extension means little as far as a player remaining with a team long term. All is does is allow a player to get security in case or horrendous injury and the team in turn gets a guarantee that is a player asks to be traded, that they will be compensated for moving the player.

    This is all it has meant for years, and why I raise an eyebrow when a fan says “but he signed an extension”.

    It would be ironic if Jrue beats 76ers in the playoffs after they let him go to in order tank for 5 years straight

    I'm not sure how that would be ironic.

    We're going to be entering a time pretty soon where every star is going to be a billionaire which is kind of holy **** unreal.

    Stupid comment. Talking trash about a guy that donated $5M of his salary last season to various causes.

    Lolol wtf is happening here if he gets 40mil per then what is Lebron worth?

    How’s Milwaukee paying anyone after this year. I guess it’s the same situation bargain bin hunting w the rockets and harden + Cp3/Westbrook

    It wouldn't be ironic because Jrue wasn't the reason why they couldn't compete for a title way back when, and Jrue won't be the primary reason why MIL beats PHI if it ever gets to that point.

    Irony would be if Kawhi's Raptors beat the Spurs in the Finals because the Spurs decided to ship Kawhi to a place where they thought he'd never succeed, in order to spite him.
