Rashard Lewis contract summed up perfectly
 
I think Chad Ford hit the nail on the head in two short paragraphs:

"Lewis just received a max deal, or very close -- as close as the Magic could offer. So is Lewis a max player?

Some questions: Was he the best player on his team? (No.) Was his team good? (No.) Is he the best player on his new team? (No.) Do we really need to ask any more questions?"


It's so simple, it seems insane the Magic don't understand this.....

masterful negotiation by his agent. hell, i'm white, 6'1", 180 lbs, with a 20" vertical, (but a three-point assasin), and i bet he could fetch me the MLE with half a dozen teams

its simple. Does Rashard Lewis make you significantly better? No, not really. And now the Magic are screwed. They used all their cap space on Lewis and are stuck with him for 6 years. What a waste.

He probably wasn't worth half that amount. Insane.....

money isnt gonna give you stats and production, shard is

Magic fans dont wanna wait, they want a new player NOW.

His "production" will never get them far in the playoffs and they are stuck with this squad for the next five years.

Bye bye Magic.....give us a call in 2012.....have a good one.....(waving)

They could have had Darko at like 1/4 of the price and still had tons of money for other free agents....

bye magic.....

Re: Rashard Lewis contract summed up perfectly
 
what other free agents? Darko? DARKO IS TRASH

Shard will put up around 25 ppg.

Yea me too. I think he's gonna have a really good year this year. Something along the lines of 25+ppg, 7-8rpg, and 3-4 apg, all which would be career highs. But he's still not worth all the money he's getting.


Either that, or he's just gonna be lazy and take in all the money while not producing like he's suppose too.

how do you say it don't make them significantly better, It adds a offensive superstar which was there biggest weakness. Sure they overpaid but they don't need him to play D or rebound and people say they let Darko go, well **** Darko hes never gonna live up to potential. They have a 20+ scorer, a 12+ rpg and a defensive beast
