I did see them and I believe Planinic,Mikael and company would have samething to say about that. Splitter had some pretty **** games mate.especially in the semi of the final four with his 1 of 7 free throws in the first half.
TAU's Budget is 20million.

No, it was stated he makes 8 times more than the rookie scale salary, which at the 28th pick would have been approximately $750,000 to $800,000. This is 6 million to 6.4 million dollars, I don't see how he is one of the highest paid basketball players in the world?

It's not a conspiracy theory that nba team don't make a lot of money, 1/3 - 1/2 nba teams lose money and the other half don't make profits worth the effort. Since you're a blazer fan, Kevin Pritchard may know a little about basketball but that's it and a lot people consider him a bad gm because he's so one dimensional.

What was stated was eight times the maximum the spurs were allow to pay him which was $1 million. Even 6 million to 6.4 million after taxes is as much as most stars make and that doesn't include the room and board.

A simple breakdown based on some info I got from here:
http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saski_Baskonia
(in the table at the top-right, look for Presupuesto 2007/2008)
http://personal.telefonica.terra.es/...ia/informa.htm
(not clear how much confidence can we put on the budget given here, but i think it could be a good hint)

So last season's budget for TAU was around 13M€. It seems that this year's will be around 14M€. I don't think the roster payroll will be much above 80%, so it makes around 11M€. So if Tiago gets half of the payroll of TAU (5.5 M€), he would be making around 8 M$ (1 € = 1.5 $) and in that case he would be around 4 M$ (2.75 M€) after taxes. I don't think that's even possible, since they have 14 players more in the roster, some of then could be making around 1M€ per year (Rako, Prigioni)...

EDIT: I just found in the old news from a basque newspaper that the budget will be lowered this year by 1 or 1.5 M€. Lol, poor Tiago and half of the roster will be homeless in a few posts... The link is in spanish, but you could manage to translate
