It is nice to hear him talk about what he is bringing to the team and NBA. He has gone to the Playoffs 10 of 12 of his seasons.
I think, just from listening to him, that he is going to be a very important piece for this team as a backup SF.
He seems to be embracing that his best years are behind him and what he offers is leadership and experience.
I actually am against trading him now, unless we bring back a verteran.
Just let his contract expire giving us cap room in 2 years. We don't need the cap space right now, since 3 of our starters are on rookie contracts.
Next year will be a squeez, but if we get rid of a contract, I hope it is AB and not Jefferson.
Maybe if AB gets arrested for Tax Evasion, his contract won't count against the cap next year lol.
(horrible thought, i know)
I don't know, man... I was secretly hoping he'd just get hit by a bus one day.
