I'm a fan of his game,

The hit is too high, but I guess that's why he signed here.

15mil a year bit much, but he's exactly type of player we needed. Btw Amir Johnson signed with Boston 2year 24mil

Cap hit isn't too high considering the massive bump in cap space during the next two years.

...Amir Johnson signed with Boston 2year 24mil

Marc J. Spears: One NBA exec on DeMarre Carroll’s four-year, $60M deal from Toronto: “They got to overpay. It’s not a desirable market and then the taxes.”

Ass:cheers: le

This type of comment is either Marc Spears being an idiot or some NBA exec should truly get slapped.

This road has been "done" over the years. Taxes net net with Non Resident withholding and games - home verses the road - are basically the exact same as New York State and Michigan. No ~ not as low as Texas of Florida but then neither is the aforementioned New York Knicks.. many states other than Texas have implemented Jock taxes that make Canada's regime look pretty good.

Desirable destination.

I'll ignore the ascetics of Toronto vs Cleveland, Milwaukee, Detroit, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Charlotte, Salt Lake City, Oakland, and just shrug. I wont dignify with a comment about "physical / social / cultural beauty" given any 3 of the above cities are in bankruptcy or imminent bankruptcy.

Ok fair enough in the sense the franchise doesnt have a winning tradition and there has been Management / Coaching shake downs over the last 10 years. Having said that the franchise with the turn out for playoffs, #wethenorth, the whole Josh Donaldson email All Star campaign for an American born baseball player...

Well again that is another "bull:no: it" comment.

I guess with the new TV cap, 15M is the new 10M...which still would've been to high for a 3 and D guy tho. Otherwise I love his game, he's got what we had hoped to get from TRoss.

Good player. To bad Casey is still coach.
