In the NBA owners that spend are owners that go over the luxury tax to win, when Gilbert does that again it will stand as proof he is spending. For the time being he's just staying under the cap and luxury tax, even if he is paying a bunch of scrubs nothing and Jamo - Baron - Andy all of the cap money.

Add the two backups they got from the Celtics.Add a top 4 draft pick and probably a 5-10 pick. Not knowing who the draft picks will be, and not being sure exactly what we have with the Celtics guys or whether Davis will soldier up or be a cancer, will that team be able to compete?

GILBERT OWNS A TEAM THAT WAS IN THE TOP THREE REVENUE DRAWS IN THE LEAGUE FOR EVERY YEAR HE PAID THE TAX. IN THE NBA HOME TEAMS KEEP ALL TICKET SALES. GILBERT WAS SITTING ON A CASH COW AND HIS FRANCHISE GAINED $200MM IN EQUITY WHILE HE OWNED IT THANKS TO LBJ AND THE CASH FLOWS. I DO NOT KNOW THAT GILBERT, AFTER TAKING A HUGE EQUITY HIT AND NOT SELLING OUT NEXT YEAR IS GOING TO BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST SPENDERS IN THE NBA. THAT IS A WAIT AND SEE THING. HAD HE TAKEN ON HAMILTON AND BD I WOULD HAVE BELIEVED IT. ASSETS, YIELDS, CASH FLOWS, EQUITY, ETC......... THIS IS ALL A BIDNESS AND HE JUST LOST HIS ASS ON HIS INITIAL INVESTMENT.

You also said:In the NBA owners that spend are owners that go over the luxury tax to winTo which, I mentioned that Gilbert has been spending over the luxury tax limit to win ever since he's bought the team, until this 15-ish win season. We can debate whether he really committed to taking on Rip's salary for another pick next year or not, but I've read enough to believe it to be true. We can also debate whether he's certain to be safely under the salary cap in 2011-12, but I suspect he's not even going to come close to being under without some trades this summer. Sorry for saying you called him "cheap." You specifically said you weren't calling him that - my mistake. Didn't read closely enough.

papacass wrote:Next couple of drafts probably aren't going to yield an NBA superstar. NBAdraft.net's 2012 mock draft is projecting Austin Rivers, a 6'-4" combo guard currently in high school, as the first overall pick. Rivers could have Iverson-level talent, but if you're looking for that dominant big man, or a kick-ass wing scorer with rare size and skill, there doesn't seem to be one on the horizon.
