You're a funny person. You also have no idea what players are worth in the NBA.
I'd love to play this game with you. So what do you think is the going rate of starting forwards similar to Green in skill level? Some examples won't hurt.
Sure. He should just play for the veteran minimum, because hey, his AVERAGES suck.
His numbers for the year are now up to exactly his career averages
OMG. Can we stop bringing up his career averages? Jesus Christ. His career averages and his potential deserve 9 mil
No they don't.
So I guess there is no salary that is between $9 million and the veteran minimum. I had no idea. Post of the year, kozlodev. Your sarcasm here doesn't even make sense. Do you even know what the veteran minimum is? Do you know that we have multiple players that make less than $9 million and more than the veteran minimum?
I'd love to be an agent negotating with you. As long as my player is better than the league minimum, you'd give me $9 million? I didn't know Ernie Grunfeld (or Billy King?)posted on CelticsBlog.
I'll even give you a joker: here are some active players whose careers resemble Jeff Green's: Ersan Ilyasova, Danilo Gallinari, Taj Gibson. Why don't you check what they're signed for, and we can talk.
10 and 3. "skill level" wont change that, only better play.
Of course, you also completely ignored the fact that players similar to Green (Basketball Reference definition, not mine) have comparable or richer contracts.
But of course, a dreamland in which Jeff Green is signed to a Chris Duhon type of contact probably exists. Good luck with that.
You're pretty far out there on this one, boss.
I'd recommend taking a look at minutes, ppg, fg%, rpg, apg, and any other particulars of mike dunleavy, martell webster, matt barnes, corey brewer and jeff green -- all very similar, though Green is bringing up the rear in the bunch. Then look at the length and size of their contracts.
Antagonism won't make you correct.
