One of golden state's finest... err.. he was pretty good for a min. I like him too though, wish him luck - can't say with that contract that i'd like too see him back in a warrior's uni...

wow $3.6 mil for 2 years? He went from $9 mil for 2 years with the raptors, then $7 mil from the cavs to $3,6 mil with the Lakers? WTF! I guess it had to do with guaranteed money but that's still a big difference...

It's wanting to be part of a wchampionship caliber team and taking less money for it. As I was saying before, those sort of players deserve respect and see more than just money

I'm sure the possibility of winning a title had something to do with it too :)

winning aside, he still stands to make more in guaranteed money... i wasn't trying to speculate on what kind of player he was, just point out the progression... And yeah, I read that the Raptors deal fell through as well, all I was saying was in a short while he went from $9 mil to $3.6 mil.
