Agreed, but on the other hand usually the player (or his agent) releases what they're asking for and why they aren't getting that much. Even if that's typically the blame game. I mean we saw that Taj, and too a way lesser extent Noah's deal.

Crystallas, I agree. Just saying it's weird. We even know when a player has diarrhea I just think it's strange. Especially with the gamble that Melo opts out. I don't think he will because he's whipped as all hell by his wife but still. And godforbid LeBron opts out as well.
