Uncofirmed! Panathinaikos offered Scola 3/26mil euro. 

Post#1 » by Jaykoolzboy » Thu Jul 10, 2008 3:27 am

According to this post

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=816872&start=15

and headline for http://www.Tom.com (one of the biggest Chinese sports website)

http://nba.sports.tom.com/2008-07-10/0424/84310045.html

that Panathinaikos offered Luis Scola 3/24Mils Euro and buyout fee.

However, it's not 100% confirmed, but it's more likely to be real.


To put in a understandable perspective Scola going to make roughly 15 millions US dollars net gross every single year (that means free housing, free transportation etc.........)

Luis isn't going anywhere. I'd be surprised if he did leave the league after a promising rookie year.

Tell that to the Grizzlies, who lost Juan Carlos Navarro to a Euro team.
Harden is still a work-in-progress. He can score, but he can't help his teammate that much - Yao Ming

I really hope this isn't true. If it is true, you know he is going to consider it.
We pay him just over 3 million per season. This offer almost triples his salary.

It's actually way more than triple, the Euro is worth a lot more than the Dollar.

Good he can't finish or shoot. Can't defend either. We need a better PF anyway.

Whoops! Didn't read far enough to realize that the number was in Euros.
Now I feel 981724397x worse.
How can he turn that down?

I'm about to have to retract the recent complementary streak I've had regarding your improvement in listening and thinking things through.

How did we manage to get to the finals in 81, 86, 94, and 95 without passing the first round? :) You mean the worst thing to happen to the franchise is not making it past the first round in 11 years? I guess that makes Grizzlies, Washington, and Atlanta fans near suicidal, eh?

It should.

Can you imagine being a Grizz fan? What sort of hell on earth would that be? The mere thought of it makes me shudder. Those poor saps in Memphis can't even take the Chicago Cubs Chickensh*it Plan B Fan Route, where you ignore repeated ineptitude for the sake of tradition and charm. Memphis fans have all the costs and none of the benefits. Must be some kind of new math.

Geh.

Focus: Aren't the Chinese news outlets about as dependable as John McCain? I know they used to spout all kinds of craziness, with no apparent qualms about 'truth'. Maybe this is another instance?

You're not considering that those people should already be in an alcoholic depressive spiral just from living in those cities. They are not as susceptible to the letdown their teams provide because they are already inured to it from looking out the window every day. It's like that Lowered Expectations ad from MAD TV. Strength through naivete.

I'll bet Scola can make more than that in the NBA once his contract with us is up.

He could also possibly make more than what is being offered to him after the 3 initial years in Europe... in other words make more now and later lol. But he's already in his mid 20s... I hope he stays ....

Luis, if you're reading this, se faz favor...
Lin is like that ex-girlfriend to bitter Knicks fans. They swear she's no good and they're better off without her, but they can't stop talking about her every opportunity they get.
