just because you are rich does not mean you simply throw money around.
Now if God forbid Bynum gets injured or Pau, what do we do? We're completely screwed at that point. The reason we still got the best in the west was because Odom was there to fill in and play well in the starting spot.
Its not throwing money around by simply making your team better so you can get more money in the long run. The amount of money home teams make for playoff games is absolutely ridiculous!!! The owners don't go hungry man. I hear in the finals they get 5 million bucks a home game.
Throwing money around would be what the garbage knicks managed by Isiah Thomas did.
