Simple as that.

Remember when Joe Johnson got a max deal...

"Can't give Joe Johnson the max!"

He's totally worth it now.


JJ didn't get 118mil. The most JJ is gonna get in his contract is what Lewis starts out with. And JJ is the better player.

“$23,790,000. How’s that for an expiring contract?” Smith smugly asked reporters yesterday. “That’s what we’re looking at in 2012. We’ll be able to do all kinds of stuff with that money. We’ll be able to sign one, maybe even two, high quality free agents. Hell, by then even Greg Oden might be available. Can you picture a front court of Greg Oden and Dwight Howard? Twin Towers, baby! Now who's laughing?”
It's very funny, but the problem is, that probably actually WAS their rationale. Honestly, NBA GMs, much like President Bush, have made satire redundant. When you can't come up with anything stupider than the real thing, the job becomes a total chore.

Remember when Joe Johnson got a max deal...

He's totally worth it now.

c'mon, how much is joe averaging on his deal? 12 millions? that's way less than 21 millions, you know.

and joe is even a little better than 'shard IMO, although it's certainly debatable. my point is, even if 'shard is better, he's certainly not 9 millions a year better.
