[Shannon] Brown back for camp an NBA champ

Quote:

The second trip to the NBA Finals in a short three-year professional career was considerably more satisfying for Brown, who was the No. 25 selection overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2006 draft.

Brown, who played three seasons for Michigan State, didn't see a minute of court time in the NBA Finals during his rookie campaign when Cleveland lost to San Antonio.

The 6-foot-4 Brown had his playing time doubled to 13.1 minutes in the playoff run with the Lakers, averaging 4.9 points, 1.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists. He had three double-figure scoring games and shot .480 from the floor.

"The great thing about this year is having a chance to play and contribute to the championship," said Brown, who was honored by the village of Maywood with a parade in his honor on July 18. "My first year I sat on the bench. I might have played five seconds.


Much, much more in link.

I really love this kid. So humble and willing to do whatever he is asked to in order to help.

I think Shannon Brown will take over the second spot or posibly starting spot next seeson leaving Farmar as the 3rd guard.

Its not much, but not many players at his level are not getting much dough. The market is bad for players like him who would've gotten millions more if owners were willing to spend more. He knew he had a good fit for this team and he has a chance to play significant minutes on a championship team. In the long run, this can make him much more money

When its said and done.. I think that his contract to contribution balance will be in favor of the Lakers having gotten a steal..

Brown has much potential for the Lakers to maximise upon..

well the lakers gave him the max they could under the rules of the CBA.. i'm sure they would have gone a bit higher had the rules allowed... i'm just surprised nobody else landed him...

That is sort of what I was thinking.. That Im surprised that they could keep him for that much. I was thinking that another team might have overbid..

There was a report that the Pacers offered him more than the Lakers did/could but he chose to stay with LA

Nope... just no market for backup PGs. CJ Watson is as good (maybe better), and still unsigned. Non-starter worthy PGs aren't going to get big dollars with the cap going down this year.

Every team that had some money to spend are suddenly facing potential luxury tax.

It would be nice to find out if this is authentic.. because it would mean alot to know that he took less to stay. Not only does it say much about his loyalty, but also about his will to win..

True and then not.. I doubt that because the lux.tax is horrible, that team will no longer overpay.. they seem to have a bad habit of always finding a way to do so..
