2 million strong.
Tilman Fertitta has grumbled about the contract of Chris Paul, according to sources that spoke with ESPN's Tim MacMahon.
Fertitta has expressed regret over Paul's four-year, $160 million max contract to staffers of the Rockets and even in front of rival executives.

“There’s too much damn turmoil.” A look at the frustration and internal friction the Rockets face as the franchise tries to figure out how to get over the hump
Definitely don't see D'antoni as the guy to figure it out. Denver and Portland feel like the competition for next year.
He was right about what was going on with the Lakers from the start.
Box scores are gonna be fun though.
i love both of these posts
was a huge lakers/nba fan
watched west/chamberlain, showtime, kobe/shaq, and all the years in between -- successful or not
used to go to 15-20 games a year at the forum
but something did change
it wasn't the move to staples, the loss of chick, jerry moving on, phil, shaq and kobe moving on, the buss children, et al...
but yeah, something changed...
in the last three years i've probably watched 5 games -- and none last season, despite thinking i would with lebron's addition
and i'm not even sure what changed but the game doesn't appeal to me the way it once did
i'd like to say i'll watch this year, but (despite who they add) i'm not sure i will
4 hours in and they're still in the parade. Kawhi taking that first flight out after probably. Kobe should offer Kawhi his helicopter, that'll put him over the top
Lol Kellerman on BSPN explaining why the Lakers always get their man yet the Knicks never do. Because that's just the way it is, MF. Deal with it. Whether it's free agency with Shaq, Kareem orchestrating his own trade from Milwaukee, swapping Gasol brothers, etc. Whether it's West, Kupchak or Pelinka/Rich Paul. Doesn't matter. We get the top big man. Dibs. Suck it
its called losing
that will change
so will you
Yeah it's some spectacle. They know how to celebrate. Nobody from the NHL hoisting any trophies so they're out in full support. Looks insane out there. 2 million they say.
That said, I hope they lose Ujiri to the Wiz right after the parade. That'll get us started on the right foot with Kawhi. Draft is coming soon so that news should be coming around the bend quickly. Surely, the Wiz would want Ujiri selecting their guys or perhaps dealing Beal
it's not the losing
there were pleanty of lean years in the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's and yet i still watched religiously
Yup. I was most engaged, ironically, during the Smush years.
It's not winning/losing.
And I used to like watching the other teams play too.
But the playoffs were, for the most part, unwatchable. The game has changed. Too many people trying to play from the free throw line.
Should remove the 3 pt line, or move it back to 30 feet
All fouls should be sideline out of bounds.
After your third foul, each foul comes with a 2 minute penalty, where you have to sub out of the game for two minutes (no power play though).
i like it
As much as I DESPISED Kevin McHale, Bill Lambeer, and pre-Laker Karl Malone, I don't recall any of them ever flopping for a foul call. Can't say the same for Lebron, and he's the face of today's NBA.
those guys back then (and before) were tough
today's players are posers
If the Lakers can't get enough cap space to sign a max then if don't sign any more long term contracts they will have 30M next offseason due to the cap increase.
AD can take in his full trade kicker this year.
Lakers can spread the money on 3 good veterans on 1 year deals. Danny Green, Darren Collison, and Seth Curry.
And add Boban Marjanovic as the MLE and Ariza's old ass for the veterans minimum.
PG: Collison, Caruso, Bonga
SG: Green, Curry
SF: LeBron, Jemmario
PF: Kuzma, Ariza
C: AD, Boban, Wagner
Next season they give the max to Ben Simmons or Joe Harris or whomever is worthy to take over for LeBron eventually.
Then match whatever Kuzma gets offered as a RFA and you are set.
good to hear i'm not the only one here that just lost interest more or less
something i don't hear much is how there really isn't any back to the basket type of players for the most part
sure there's a couple of guys that still have moves but nothing like the Worthy's or Erving's of the past
those spin moves down low were insane and you had a lot more blocked shots
i think w so many guys able to hit 3's now the 2 pt shot is just not worth the effort
pretty sure it comes down to the math just like launch angles but it makes the game boring
and the fouling at the end of games until there is zero chance of coming back, yeah that's so awesome
definitely need to do something to change it from 3 pt drive and dish malaise
i mean do you ever see a guy hit a 3 and say "WOW that was amazing?" ok sometimes but not very often
