Can we just agree we have no fucking idea what is going to happen when he looks at absurd tax bills without desperately trying to keep LBJ from leaving? I mean really? This isn't a fair point?
I agree that we don't really know what will happen with the new luxury tax rules, but I would say with about 90% certainty that a team in the Cavs market couldn't afford to pay max guys like Durant and Westbrook, Ibaka ~$10 mill, then make Harden a near max player. It just won't happen and it won't be owner related but market related. The tax will be too costly.
The Lakers, Knicks, Nets, and whomever has LBJ could be willing too, but even then it is a stretch.
This is dumb anyway. To get back on the draft, I could really see us taking Len. I prefer Noel, but Len is my number two guy on the board so it isn't the end of the world I guess.
