Default Tyson Chandler asking for over $20 million per year

According to CNN.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...tml?xid=cnnbin

Maybe he's joking around, I don't know. Or maybe he thinks NBA owners and GMs are complete idiots who will throw ridiculous contracts at any role-player who has a good season, even after making a whole bunch of noise about players being overpaid and contracts being too long a huge and guaranteed even when the player inevitably takes a vacation until his next contract year, to the point of making it one of their main arguments during a ****ing lockout. OK, ridiculous free agent signings after a championship have happened in the past... many, many times. But again, wasn't a huge part of this lockout the owners saying they no longer wanted to hand out huge contracts to non-all-stars just to be competitive?

Even taking into account how many players have been overpaid in the past after contributing to champeenship run, Chandler is ****in DREAMING if he thinks he's getting that much. DREEEEEAAAAAAMING. Don't get me wrong, he'll get overpaid, but come on, Chandler is a good defensive role-player who can throw down an alley-oop or two, he's not even close to being a franchise player, he may as well be asking for $50 million a year.

According to sources, Nene, Chandler and Gasol all set their early asking prices in the neighborhood of maximum-contract territory, starting at $14.8 million for Gasol, $17.7 annually for Nene, and $20.7 million for Chandler.



Only idiots would give them so much money.They are worth little more than a half of that and only because there aren't any good centers in the league today.

Does anybody else find it funny that the salaries asked for are in opposite order based on talent? Gasol >>> Nene > Chandler

Chandler is just trying to squeeze every last penny he can get out of Cuban, it's called negotiating. Both Chandler and Cuban know that he isn't going anywhere though.
