Default Why don't the Spurs Big 3 get criticized for taking paycuts to stay together and win?

Why don't the Spurs Big 3 get criticized for taking paycuts to stay together and win?

Manu is only getting 2 years, 14 million.

When the Spurs Big 3 does that it's ok.
When the Heat's Big 3 does that it's not ok.

With 2 years, 14 million, the chances of the Spurs landing AK47 or another free agent becomes a really strong possibility.

When the Heat Big 3 took paycuts to make sure the team had enough coin to sign Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem, that was bad.

But when the Spurs Big 3 do the same thing so the team can sign another top level free agent, that's ok.

I would say because all 3 players were drafted by the team and have played their entire careers together on the team??? maybe a slightly different scenario than what transpired in the Miami situation, but that's just me.

Because it's not concerning LeBron. Plus nobody cares about the Spurs. Pretty much all there is to it.

Manu & Parker never pretended to be superstars. They grew together to become the great players that they are.

Lebron, Wade, Bosh all believe they are superstars that can carry a team. They tried.. failed.. and took the short way out.

Totally different scenario. Lebron has "Chosen One" tattoed on his back for christ sake.

Spurs really don't have a BIG 3 anymore....so they are not worth max dollars, they are paid what they are worth now.

Two posts of equal stupidity in the same thread. Impressive.

Ginobili got overpaid like crazy. 14 for 2 years. Thatīs like one million for every turover he committed in the last minutes of games six and seven.
